4 Things to Know before You Attend Your Final Wedding Dress Fitting Appointment

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Looking picture-perfect is one of the most important items on a bride’s list of to-do’s – and it all starts with picking the right wedding dress to suit her, her style, her personality, her story.

Once you have ordered your gown, you will also have to attend a few fitting appointments to ensure that your wedding dress is perfect for your body – and your final wedding dress fitting appointment is of the utmost importance.

What are some of the essential things to know before you attend your final wedding dress fitting appointment?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • If you plan on losing weight, make sure you stop around the time you have your final wedding gown fitting appointment. You want this appointment to be the last one, so your wedding dress should suit your body as you will “wear” it on your Big Day. Of course, weight loss can happen afterwards too, but do make sure your dress will be able to adjust to that.
  • By the time you have your last fitting appointment, you should already own your wedding shoes. Most importantly, you should bring them with you to your fitting appointment. This is extremely important because it will determine the actual length of your wedding gown.
  • It is also important to bring the wedding day undergarments with you as well. Yes, you should bring along the actual undergarments you plan on wearing on your wedding day. This will allow your seamstress to fit the dress around your body in a way that makes the undergarments invisible (and it will also allow you to make undergarment adjustments in case you notice any irregularities during the last fitting appointment).
  • Last, but not least, it is recommended that you bring your major wedding accessories with you too. For instance, your wedding veil is important for the fitting appointment, especially if it’s very long and it needs to coordinate with the train. Other accessories are important too, because they will help you gain a better perspective of how you will actually look on your wedding day.

Should You Have a Thrash the Dress Photo Shooting?

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Wearing the most beautiful wedding dress is surely one of your top priorities for the Big Day – but what happens with it afterwards?

Some brides choose to have a thrash the dress photo session, for example. Is that right for you too, though? Should you follow in the trend as well?

We have some tips to help you decide – so read on if you want to find out more.


  • Thrash the dress photos look amazing – and it’s a wonderful way you can get to wear your beautiful gown once again. These pictures are usually quite empowering and fun, and they can complement the entire story told by all the other wedding photos in a very beautiful way.
  • At the same time, though, thrash the dress photos are not for everyone. If you have spent a lot of money on your gown and don’t want to see it ruined, or if you plan on re-selling it as a gently used wedding dress, this kind of photos shooting might not be for you. Some budget-friendly brides are quite afraid of the fact that their gown will be completely ruined and that all the money they have invested in them will not be recovered in any way – and if you’re among these brides, it’s totally fine not to have a thrash the dress session (no matter what trends might say).
  • Some thrash the dress photo sessions are “lighter” and they simply take place in unusual places (such as on a field of lavender or rapeseed flowers). In this case, the gown might get stained – but with the help of a good cleaner, you can bring it back to its original state. Further on, you can have your gown boxed to be kept for the years to come. Who knows, maybe one day your own daughter will want to use the dress for her own wedding day!
  • In the end, it is all a matter of perception and preference. If you want this unique photo shooting, you should have it. But if you’re afraid that this might affect your finances, you are completely free not to thrash the dress!
