Six things to do before putting your wedding dress on

Six things to do before putting your wedding dress on


Written by Katie Byrne


Step away from the white dress, ladies... 

 

#1 Give your make-up time to 'dry'

There are fewer sights more depressing than that of a foundation tide mark against the pristine white neckline of a wedding dress. A setting spray will help keep prone-to-slipping make-up in place, and is also handy if you're worried about heat and/or humidity making your foundation 'slip'.

#2 Eat breakfast

Greasy bacon, scarlet jam, bright orange juice - breakfast is a stain-minefield just waiting to explode! Play it safe by eating your brekkie before you even consider putting your wedding dress on, and nibble on non-coloured foods if you need a snack later on in the morning.

#3 Take getting-ready photos

Well, duh. Your photographer will have lots of ideas for what could work here - and adorable monogrammed dressing gowns will add to the boudoir vibe.

#5 Move any dark liquids out of the way

#6 Take a few deep breaths

Not only will it help those of you opting for a super-tight dress squeeze into it a little easier - a few relaxing breaths will help to calm any nerves you have, too. Breathe in to a count of five, and breathe out to a count of seven, three times. Hello, zen mode.
