Wedding Dress fittings experience??
Posted: Dec 31, 2011 1:52 AM

So I've never yet been to any bridal shops to try on dresses. I was curious about the experience. Are you supposed to wear what you plan on wearing the day of the wedding underneath? (I'm not sure yet what I will be wearing underneath) Do you make sure to wear a strapless bra? I really don't want anyone to see my tummy, can I ask them to leave the room while I put on the dress? Just wondering what it's like to try on wedding dresses!

You should wear the undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day.

I have not tried on wedding dresses...yet :) I am totally addicted to Say Yes to the Dress on TLC, it is a show that takes you inside a Manhattan Bridal boutique. That show is incredible and very helpful, I would suggest that you watch that show and see what the boutique experience is like :)

The problem, IMHO, with that show is that it sets very high expectations. If you're shopping at David's or the vast majority of other stores your experience won't be like it is on Say Yes. It's on TV because it's a bit sensationalized. The service and emotional investment shown on that show just ain't happening for most people, and it could be very disheartening to realize it. I love that show and was pretty bummed to realize its not reality at all. :(

Some of the shops provide you with undergarments but I always preferred to wearing my own. You could wear spanx or some body shaper wear to help you get an idea of what your dress would look like.

I suggest going to your nearest David's Bridal salon. They provide you with garments to change into and they leave you in the room so you can have privacy while changing. They also sell the garments. They are all nice and extremely helpful.

Understanding the different fashion trends and silhouettes that are the toast of the season is important while choosing a wedding dress, it is also important to pay attention to the V-neck Lace Wedding Dress etiquette which needs you to dress according the event. Being a slave to fashion trends is an extremely bad idea as there is a possibility that a silhouette that is a rage on the catwalk may be unflattering for you. What you could do is always adopt the style to suit your body type and then accessorize it in ways to make you stand out at the party. Given below are some tips that can give you fresh new eyes to choose the perfect wedding dress .

These were just a few tips that will help you understand how to choose a V-neck Lace Wedding Dress. Try and keep them in mind the next time you go shopping.

It is always a good idea to decide on your dress depending on how you received your invitation. If you were invited over the phone or sent an e-mail, then chances are that the event is a casual affair but at the same time if you were sent an invitation by post or personally invited, then it is probably a more formal event. Strapless Lace Wedding Dress are more suitable for such wedding.

Avoid Custom Wedding Dresses that are full length gowns which make you look like you are about to walk the red carpet. Choose a V-neck Lace Wedding Dress that has a length that ranges between being a mini or just above the ankles. Also the fabric that you choose should be in accordance with the season. Wearing a wool blend dress in the summers will only make you sweat.

Although V-neck Lace Wedding Dress has great advantages. Do not choose a dress that makes you uncomfortable. If you are a little closed to the idea of showing off your arms in a strapless or sleeveless dress, but love the overall fit of the dress, then you could opt to carry a shrug or a stole that will help you hide the arm area.

The most important part of any V-neck Lace Wedding Dress is to accessorize it well. Do not go overboard with jewelery. Always wear one eye catching piece instead of wearing several ornaments. Try and experiment with colors and cuts. You can also do so with the shoes that you wear contrasting it with the color of your dress.

Ofcoarse you can. You are entitled to your privacy whenever you are trying clothing on in store. I recommend wearing something similar to what you plan on wearing on the day.

It's a wonderful experience going shopping for your wedding dress. I hope you enjoy the day and don't get too stressed. A good thing to remember is - it's not quite like the movies. You'll have to try on 20 dresses before you you get that dress that takes your breath away.
