Practice makes perfect – Bridal dresses can be quite complicated to figure out. So can headpieces, jewelry & bouquets. Especially last minute! Don’t wait until the day of your wedding to figure out how to bustle-up your gown before your first dance as a new bride. Count how many buttons there are at the back of your dress and bring a repair kit. Test the loops to make sure they can get around those tiny buttons. Don’t be too hasty when testing your zipper…be gentle and make sure the zip doesn’t get caught into the fabric. Know exactly where to fasten pins in your hair so your headpiece sits securely and complements your wedding-hairdo just right. Let your gown designer show you how to tie your bows the right way. More importantly, you must pass all this information along to your bridesmaids or whoever else is designated to help you shine on your wedding day. And practice. I’ve seen too many zippers run off tracks, buttons pop without the tools to replace them, and headpieces fall to the ground. Practice will not only make perfect, but it will save you a lot of time and frustration.
