Choosing your wedding dress is arguably one of the biggest elements of planning your wedding. But finding a style you like it just beginning – there’s still a long way to go before you’re ready to walk down the aisle in your dream gown. From first fitting to final, here’s what to expect – and what’s expected of you- during the next few months.


Once you have chosen your perfect dress and ordered it in, you have a few things to do before your first fitting date. This includes deciding on what accessories you want to wear pajama robes on the day and buying them. With your dress style in mind, try out a few different options for jewellery, headpieces, wraps and bags, and make sure you have all of them with you for your first fitting. You should also buy your underwear and bridal shoes before you go to your first fitting, as these will both affect the way your dress hangs on you. You should bring these last 2 to all of your fittings – a simple bra switch of change in heel height can mean your dress doesn’t fit properly.


Your first dress fitting will usually happen around 6 weeks before your wedding day. While it might seem a bit late, there is plenty of time for any adjustments to be made. Just like when you were shopping, bring one eagle-eyed friend or family member along for advice and support. Make sure you have your shoes, underwear and wedding-veils any other accessories you will be wearing. This way you can see how everything looks together and decide if you want to change some accessories around. This first fitting is designed to make sure that your gown is the right size, colour and design, and that your seamstress knows what needs to be done. They will examine you in your gown from all angles and look for placed where the dress needs to be altered to fit your unique figure – including areas that need to be shortened, taken in or let out. While your seamstress is doing all of that, you should be closely examining your dress too. Pay attention to how the waist and bust feel, if there is any puckering of fabric or any areas that feel uncomfortable. For example, if you have sensitive skin and a beaded bodice, your seamstress may be able to remove a small line of beads under short evening dresses the arms of your dress to prevent scratching and discomfort. Before you leave, remember to schedule your next fitting.

Your second fitting should be about a month before your wedding. Again, you need to remember to bring along your bridal lingerie, bridal shoes, jewellery and accessories. If you’re still trying to decide between a few different things, bring them all along with you to try on. At this fitting, you’ll get a chance to try on your new, form fitting dress and make sure it feels right. You can make sure all of your concerns from the first fitting have been addressed, and you’ll be able to move around in your gown to check for comfort. If you have a full-length dress, you should make sure that the hem of your skirt skims the tops of your shoes and doesn’t get caught up when you walk. Again, make sure you speak up if something doesn’t look right – there’s still plenty of time to have things altered.
