Any newly married bees have any advice on kneeling in your dress? The kneelers we will be using have fronts to lean on but they aren’t exactly stable enough that you could push off of them. I know I’ll be looking to my new husband to help get my feet under me! I’m just worried about it being very akward or me stepping on my dress and pulling it down! My dress isn’t so fitted that it will be uncomfortable to kneel but it does have a bit of a train. Any words of wisdom on how to do this gracefully? Thanks bees!

I was worried about this too. It ended up not being a big deal. Darling Husband gave me his arm to help me get up, which was a sweet gesture.
I don’t remember how to not step on my dress. Luckily for me I didn’t have to move far.

The kneelers ive seen look pretty sturdy…but you should tell your fiane to offer you his hand everytime you have to stand.
I was also told that I should nix the entire kneeling pillow thing, that it just makes it harder.

My church just had 2 chairs up on the side of the alter and the couple sat or stood but never knelt. I have attended 4 weddings there and all were the same. They just stayed seatd for the kneeling parts.

Our church doesn’t use kneelers. We stood alot and sat.

We knelt through our ceremony, and while I was nervous about this too, it didn’t end up being a big deal at all! I just pulled up the skirt a tiny bit before kneeling to give myself some extra give when kneeling and so my toes could find the floor when it was time to stand. Take your FI’s arm to stand and you’ll be good to go! Plus, you’ll get some great pictures down the aisle!

It’s not as bad as it seems. Have your maid of honor help straighten out your dress and your Fiance help you stand. Good luck!
