The Next Steps AFTER You’ve Found The Perfect Dress

Once you’ve found the perfect wedding dress, it feels as if you can check ‘wedding dress’ off your to-do list. However, there is still a creative process that rests ahead. Be prepared so you can continue your wedding preparation with plenty of time and ease. Here are some tips and recommendations for AFTER you’ve found your gown:

  • Find a professional atelier with skilled alteration specialists to assist you with your bridal fittings and alterations.  At our atelier, we have an amazing creative team to help you. Book an appointment at least 8 weeks in advance of your wedding date.  Depending on how complex your alterations are, we may need more time to work on your dress. There can be many fittings in this process, so you want to make sure you have enough time in between fittings, too. 
  • If possible, decide on your shoes, undergarments, and accessories prior to going into your first fitting. These will all affect the alterations on your gown. We want to be sure  everything fits perfectly, so have on exactly what you will be wearing on your wedding day.
  • Bring one honest and direct friend or family member to give you a second eye during your fittings. This is always useful and will help you confidently make decisions on any additional alterations. 
  • If your dress has a long train you will need a bustle created. We have so many ideas for bustles and will help you find the most flattering bustle to compliment your dress. 
  • During your final fittings, be sure to have the exact shoes, garments, and accessories you will be wearing on your wedding day. This is your last chance to make the finishing touches to your gown. Make sure you feel comfortable, and if anything at all feels awkward, be sure to bring it up in the fitting.
  • Finally, if your gown has a bustle, bring your Maid of Honor or a bridesmaid with you so they can learn how to bustle your gown.  If they are not available, we will take a video in the studio showing exactly how to do it.

After finding your perfect gown there are plenty of steps you need to take before you can check it off your wedding to-do list. Make sure you allocate plenty of time for the wedding dress process as it doesn’t end after finding your dress.
