Bring a strapless bra (or appropriate bra).  When I went, I had the lady etch on the bra with pen where the dress came up to on my back.  When I go shopping for bras, I’ll know how low cut in the back they’ll have to be.

Bring the shoes!

Bring a camera!

Veil?  Bring it!

Wear your hair “ish” how you want to wear it – I want my hair up and I wore it down that day and it threw everything off

GOOD LUCK! 🙂

Bring everything you plan on wearing on your wedding day. That way you can make sure your undergarments are hidden, the shoes are the right height with the dress, etc. Have fun!

P.S. Don’t wear makeup. It might get on your dress.

Don’t totally rule out certain styles that you think you might hate. I thought I would absolutely hate a poofy ballgown and that it would make me look incredibly short. But those were the ones that ended up looking the best! I was also about 99% sure that I would hate a mermaid cut. I tried one on just to be sure, and I was right. But at least I confirmed what I already thought and won’t be wondering if one would have looked great on me.

I would also advise against taking 20 different people with you. I took my mom and maid of honor. Another girl who was there at the same time looked like she brough every female family member and then some. She seemed really overwhelmed by everyone’s opions. Bring the people whose opinions you trust the most.

If you find “the one” and you know for sure it’s perfect, stop trying on other dresses! You can try on hundreds of dresses and like most of them. If you try on a ridiculous amount, then you will be going back and forth.

Make sure if anyone takes pictures that they don’t post them on facebook!

Wait… first fitting? Doesn’t that mean you already have your dress, you’re just getting it altered?
