Five things to do to your wedding dress before you get married

Five things to do to your wedding dress before you get married


Written by Katie Byrne


Walk down the aisle in style and comfort with these tips and pointers!

#2 You might want to...

Sew your wedding date into your dress. It's a seriously sweet idea and one that crafty brides are increasingly turning to to add some extra personality to their big-day frock. Of course, we're not saying emblazon it across somewhere too visible - stitch it somewhere subtle, such as on the reverse side of your skirt.

#4 You should totally...

Go to the bathroom. Seriously! We cannot stress this point enough - and here are some tips for using the loo in relative style once you've got the dress on, as well.
