@wifeyoneill21:  Oh… this is a stuff one.  You should ask your make-up artist about this, maybe they have had brides with your type of dress in the past.  I had airbrush foundation that didn’t smudge so easily so it all depends on what they use.

I would think that with a couple people helping you, you should be able to swoop the dress on over your head without messing up your hair or make-up. 

My dress has to go on over my head too, because I’m wearing a slip skirt underneath. I can’t put the slip on after the dress, because it comes up kind of high, so I’ll have to have the dress put on over my head.


But when I was trying on dresses, I remember the majority of them being put on over my head – there were only a few that could be stepped into, I think.

I think you’ll be okay.

I know this is usually a huge no-no, but my seamstress swears by it. Right before you put your dress on, put a plastic bag over your head, as soon as you’re able, take it off. She said the plastic will keep the make up off the dress and make the dress slide easier so it doesn’t ruin your hair.

I was able to step into my dress, so I didn’t try it, but like I said, my seamstress swears it works.
