@MissFireFlower: I never really thought of this being a problem lol I don’t really care who sees me in my undies because its the same as a bikini. That’s how i feel though and my family knows I’m comfortable with it. If you’re not then they should respect you and give you some time alone before to get ready! I agree with other PPs about a robe and pulling up your dress alone and having someone help you with it.

The only person in the room with me was my best friend, my Maid/Matron of Honor. We’ve seen each other in our undies before, so I could care less.. and until she had my dress up and on, we didn’t invite the photographer in.

@MissFireFlower: I wore a robe while getting my makeup and hair done. I also only allowed my Maid/Matron of Honor to stay with me until the photographers were ready. It is your day. You can decide how you want it done. The whole morning may feel surreal. I know it did for me.

While I was getting ready I was wearing a white robe. I was with my mom, sister and one of my bridesmaids + the makeup artist. My photographer showed up as my makeup was finished up, got a few pictures of me in the robe, etc. and then I went into the bathroom and put on my undergarments. I’m pretty sure I put them on in the bathroom. Either way I did it privately. After that I came out and put my crinoline on while I was wearing the robe. Then I took the robe off and I was wearing my bra. I don’t really mind if people see me in my bra, it’s waist down I don’t like exposing. Then everyone helped me put my dress on. I tried to do it as modestly as I could. However, if you are uncomfortable with people seeing you undressed, why don’t you go into a private room or bathroom when it comes time to put the dress on, and then if you need help you can have people help zip or corset the dress.

I did not want everyone seeing me in my undies! I had them leave when I was getting dressed. No one had an issue with it.

lol…I wore a tanktop I could shimmy out of and shorts up til the dress went on. I didn’t mind the BMs and my mom seeing my undies for the 2 seconds of changing but specifically kept Mother-In-Law away as she and I are not close and she’s errrr weird and creepy.

@MissFireFlower: wear a robe for you and your hair/makup artists, and remind everyone that whether (especially because?) its your wedding day, or not, no one has the right to watch you dress or see you half naked. You don’t like it, and you certainly don’t want to start your wedding day being uncomfortable.
EDIT: you can also tell everyone that you want to have a big reveal with your dress at some point… AFTER you are dressed.

To be honest it’s totally up you and no it’s not rude to ask for privacy. As I was getting my hair and make-up done I had my Bride tank top and my PJ pants on. When it came time to get dressed I just took my tank and pants off. I wasn’t shy since it was all women (mom, Maid/Matron of Honor and friend) present, even my photog was there but she didn’t take any pics. I surprised my make-up artist when I when I started getting undressed, but time was of the essence and I needed to get dressed. Like I said it’s up to you, if you want privacy and to be alone when you get dressed then so be it. It’s your day and you have to do what is comfortable for you!

I don’t plan on letting anyone see me in my shapewear (and also topless since I won’t be wearing a bra with my dress). I’m just going to pop on my dress by myself and then call everyone in to help me lace it up. I’m also not comfortable with people seeing all that.
I’ll be wearing leggings, a tank, and a robe all day while I get ready.
