I wouldn’t bother with a hair and makeup trial, but I would try to bring a pair of heels that are about the height of the shoes you are comfortable wearing.  They usually will have undergarments for you if you forget your strapless bra.

I went dress shopping maybe a dozen times, so it wasn’t really worth it to me to get my hair and makeup done each time.  I did try to make sure that I looked nice that day though so I could get a better sense of what I would look like on my wedding day.

I had no idea of the same undies as the wedding day thing. I wore boyshorts and nude colored bra, but never wore the bra. I always wound up taking it off and I didn’t have the money for a strapless bra. (Being a 34Dirty Delete is EXPENSIVE)

I would suggest leaving your hair down (if you want it down for the wedding) or up (if you’re having it up). That way you get the effect, but I really think seeing all of that come together is a part of the wedding day magic. It’s definitely a personal preference, but I wouldn’t want to eliminate the moment that I’m going to get to share with my best friends and FI’s family when I first get to see myself as a bride with my dress and my hair and makeup all done.

I wouldn’t do a full on hair and makeup trial but I did do a half ass job of putting my hair in a loose updo so it would at least look similar.
