There are so many beautiful brides-to-be that step through our doors in search of the perfect wedding gown. It’s our hope to help each and every one of them have the best wedding day possible. Our blog is full of beautiful photos and inspiration, and today we want to share a different type of resource: a list of important, wedding-day essentials.
Some brides may attest to the idea that their dress is one of the most important components of their dream day. However, your wardrobe isn’t just about the gown, it’s about what’s underneath too. Find undergarments that are going to coordinate with the silhouette of your dress. A nude strapless bra is often the perfect option, going with a variety of necklines. You can also check “something blue” off your list with colorful pieces from lingerie bridal collections.
In the case of a wardrobe malfunction for you or for your bridesmaids, maintain a sewing kit that includes safety pins as well. Safety pins can be a helpful hack for easily lacing up and tightening a corset, as well. A good tip to keep in mind, is to ask the dress experts. Those that sold you your dream dress are going to have advice for how to take care of your gown and any mishaps that may happen.
You might not think that your hands are important for the wedding, but they will likely be the highlight of a few photos as your photographer captures your new wedding bands. That being said, invest in a manicure kit that will include the tools needed for a quick touch-up, if necessary.
The hair and makeup process can be a long one as the bride gets ready, or even the time she spends just before getting into her gown celebrating with bridesmaids and family members. To make this time easy and comfortable, brides should think about bringing a robe or oversized, button-down shirt to wear that won’t have to be pulled over her face and hair.
Outdoor weddings require some special items, including products for skin protection. Think about sunscreen and bug spray, especially if you plan to have a lot of photos taken outside. Another small, but handy, item to keep in mind are heel covers. Thin heels can easily sink into the grass, getting the bride stuck or ruining their white color. They’re available in clear designs, so they won’t be seen.
Brides often have nerves as they prepare to walk down the aisle, which can affect the body. To avoid a woozy stomach or light head, pack a small snack, as well as a bottle of water.
Taking these items into consideration, reflect on your priorities as a bride and see if there’s any components of preparing your big day that stand out. Every bride has different components that she is most excited for, so the essentials are going to vary! All in all, the most important thing is to prepare yourself to have the best day possible, celebrating with friends, family, loved ones and most importantly, your new spouse.
