@MrsNeutrino:  I’d say light makeup and have your hair look nice.

I went braless in my dress and had cups put in. If they know you are having cups put in, then go braless so they can pin the cups in place.

Eat and drink water before you go, you will be standing a LONG time.

You should wear whatever undergarments you plan on wearing the day of the wedding so everything can be adjuster perfectly. Same goes for the shoes.

Congratulations!!  Can’t wait to hear how it goes!!

BRING WATER!  Seriously.  Bring lots.

A lot of dress shops have undergarments you can use if you need to.  Wear big panties unless you want to be flashing/mooning your consultant the whole time! 😉

Bring your camera and good luck!

I went bra-less under my dress. I wear D-cups, and my girls were locked and loaded in my internal corset gown!

I wore regular every day makeup, and a lot of deoderant. I got SO hot during my first fitting because my dress was so long, no air was getting up under it. It was also August…

enjoy! Take pictures! And don’t be afraid to tell the seamstress exactly what you want or if something is not perfect

@MrsNeutrino:  I don’t see why not. I only went to one seamstress, but I assume people shop around!

It looks gorgeous! It sucks about those panty lines! AI wouldn’t know what to suggest.. When I wore something super fitted I wore tights (panty hoes– that sounds silly) and a thong.. it worked pretty well.. Although I don’t know how that would look.
