You’ll at least want something to hold in and shape your midsection.  Also, a nice slip that adds some appropriate volume to your dress is necessary as well.

Other than that, I can’t think of anything.  But there are *lots* of options out there to choose from.  

Didn’t your bridal gown consultant and/or seamstress go over these things with you?  Getting professional advice from someone who can see you in the dress in person is best.

northshorebride:  Having those items ahead of time is definitely very helpful.  You could still touch base with either the bridal gown consultant who sold you the dress or call the seamstress for sugestions beforehand.

northshorebride:  I’m not sure what I am wearing yet, but I did see someone on here suggest shorts! She wore lace shorts that were comfy. I thought it was a brilliant idea, but my dress is the same silhouette as the one yours (I am guessing that is a photo of your dress) and I don’t know how shorts would look under it. I might just wear cheeky lace panties or boyshort lace panties. Not sure about anything else though.

I’m a big fan high-waisted, long leg shapers from Spanx, particularly these: http://www.spanx.com/shorts/slim-cognito-high-waisted-mid-thigh-short-38-ms2433#1689=9619 

But they aren’t exactly pretty. Someone here introduced me to a prettier brand that they said were just as good. http://rago-shapewear.com/catalog/product-category/catalog/high-waist-long-leg-shaper/ 

The high waist is crucial so you don’t get any rolls pushed out in awkward places. They usually come with straps to attach to a bra, but I’ve never used them. I’ve never had the waist roll or shift on me.

i was told by my seamstress not to wear any special undergarments just underwear.  She says spanx will show through which works because I hate the idea of wearing them hahah
