    because of the style of my dress (1 shoulder w/ strappy back and sheath fit), i will have to put it over my head.  I’m planning to keep my hairstylist around long enough to fix any pieces that may come undone when I put the dress on.

    My dress is huge and full of tull.  I would never be able to find the hole to pull it over my head!

    I said over the head because that’s what I’ve been doing at my fittings, but I changed my mind! I don’t want to mess up my hair day of. I think you can probably “unbunch” (the technical term Laughing) your petticoat after it’s on.

    Stepping in, seems like more work to lift up the heavy dress over my head.

    Is it possible to step in the dress first and then pull the peticoat up from under the dress and adjust? That might be the easiest thing to do on the wedding day to avoid messing up hair and makeup.

    I stepped in my dress.

    I stepped in then had my Maid/Matron of Honor get under there and straighten the peticoats out for me 🙂

    I stepped in.  Your petticoat can be straightened out more easily than your hair or makeup!

    I put it over my head. I had my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man help me. my hair and make up were fine.

    I wore a huge hoop skirt underneath so I had no choice but to put it on over hair + makeup. Two bridesmaids helped and went without a hitch.

    That seems backwards to me – things get all bunched if you do it over the head!
