Not sure what to title this post LOL
Ideally, I’d like to get ready alone. No one-just me and my thoughts and my makeup artist. I’ve been told (by MANY) that this is rude. The bride gets ready with the bridesmaids. People will take pictures.His family is EXCITED about the day-of getting ready.
I’l have my underbust corset, push up bra, garder belt and thigh highs on until it’s time to put the dress on. It seems like the correct order of things should go:
I didn’t think until now that OTHER PEOPLE are going to be in the room.
Sure FMIL, FI’s Aunt, BM’s…lets all hang out with me in my underpants. Everyone else else is going to be ready with their cameras…snapping away (it’s a big emotional HAPPY event in his family) and I just know that even if it’s not of me, their is going to be my butt poking out in the corner of a picture
Is anyone else freaked out by this?

You can wear a robe, or some other easily-removable covering, for hair and makeup.
But also, I think if you want to get ready alone, you can say that!

It’s not rude to get dressed by yourself and not want everyone to see your underwear. Or like the PP said, you can wear a robe. You can even insist that there will be no photos in that room until your dress is on and fastened.

lol Umm Maybe you could get a bridal robe? My sister stayed in her cute little tracksuit until it was time to put her dress on. But yes, then she disrobed in the kitchen and we all helped her into her dress. lol it is a little awkward but she wanted the pics of us all helping her get dressed.

I had a sil who I was a bridesmaid for, I’ll never forget the look on her face as she stood there with her boobs hanging out and the grooms grandmother walked in. I think a robe or a private place is not asking too much at all!

I’ve been a BM in a few weddings and never saw the bride in her underwear. She was always wearing something comfortable for hair and makeup and then went into another room to change into her dress. (Once we were at a hotel and she asked for a minute of privacy, which no one had a problem with.) No one is seeing me in my underwear unless I literally need help getting into my dress, then it will just be my best friend. No photographers, no parents, no other BMs.

@LLRininger: this is what some family is wanting!! It’s private time!
I feel like if I lay down rules like ‘no pictures’ I’m a fun-killer.

During the whole getting ready process, I had on the the cute undies under some yoga pants and a tank top. I kicked out everyone but the bridesmaids and my mom to help me into the dress. The photographer was there for the “getting into the dress” pics, but she kept her camera down until my lady bits were all covered up then took pics of the zipping and adjusting and such.

@dlbaqua: This is my fear. I don’t need to give grandma fireflower a heart attack

For me, everyone (the camera man, videographers, makeup artists and bms) looked away until the dress was up over my bra…
No one saw anything and then the photographer still got great shots of the dress getting buttoned up.

I wore a robe and leggings over my “under things” all day until it was time to actually get dressed. I slipped my dress on over my legs and then took off the leggings (with a little help) and then ditched the robe once the dress was situated appropriately.
My photographer waited outside until things were in place and came in to take the getting dressed photos. It wasn’t nearly as exposed as it sounds and not one of them got a show. 🙂

Oh but speaking of modesty, I had panty hose and spanks on so it’s not like anyone could see anything anyways. I already felt covered up. hah

i guess i’m not very modest because i could care less with anyone seeing me in my underwear the day of – everyone’s got it and everyone’s seen it before. Maybe it’s because I spent half my life in leotards..

@MissFireFlower: I think it is perfectly acceptable for you to be alone while getting ready. However, if you are wanting to compromise a bit I’d say just wear a cute robe while getting make up and hair… and then kick everyone you don’t want in to actually put on your dress. Then everyone can come back for pictures once you aren’t in your undies 😉
