Wedding gowns take a bit of effort to put on, especially wedding dresses with sleeves. When trying on modest wedding gowns you will need some help getting in and out of them. At Elizabeth Cooper Design we will give you as much privacy as possible, but at times our bridal consultants must be in the dressing room with you. They will lace up the corset of each wedding dress that you choose to try on, to make sure that you are getting the best fit possible.
Any guests that you bring to the appointment should plan to remain seated outside of the dressing room while you put on each wedding gown. Taking this approach helps us select the right sizes, and protect the wedding gowns so they are fresh and undamaged. It also gives you a fun opportunity to make a grand entrance with each wedding dress!
Wearing white or nude colored under garments to your bridal appointment will make it easier to visualize how you will look in your gown on your big day. Though the bodice and skirts of our modest wedding dresses are always fully lined and cannot be seen through, dark or brightly colored underwear will cause the overlaying fabrics to appear to be different shades than other parts of the wedding gown, which can be distracting.
Bring heels similar in height to the ones you intend to wear on your wedding day, so that you can get an accurate idea of the proper gown length you will need.
Do your hair similarly to the way you think you will wear it for the wedding. It is easier to visualize yourself in “the gown” when you are done up the way you plan to be on your special day. However, go easy on the makeup, especially foundation or concealers, as well as blush and lipstick, since those can easily get on wedding gowns when you’re changing in and out.
Whether you come alone, or bring a couple of guests to your appointment, plan to try on several of our modest wedding dresses and enjoy yourself!
