Tips for Putting on a Gown from Cherish Bridal
1.Before putting on your gown, go to the toilet. It may be the last time you get to go before the reception.
Have the bride and her bridesmaids wash their hands well, in case makeup is on the fingertips.
2.Top up your deodorant, ensuring there’s no white residue
3.Step into your gown and hoop if you have one to avoid going over your head if possible spoiling hair & make up..putting on shoes first will avoid bending over and putting pressure on your zipper.
Two people should assist in zipping.
4.Make sure the gown is in the correct position before fastening hook and eye, zipping or lacing.. One person should be at the front, easing the dress back along the ribcage to make the zip go up easier, to avoid putting too much stress of the zip. If you are in a tightly bodiced gown, do up the zip a few inches at the base, have a bridesmaid push the fabric along the ribcage to assist the second bridesmaids in doing up the top button or hook and eye, and finally zip it all the way.
If your gown isn’t in the correct position this will affect fastenings and also the hem position.
5.For a bodiced gown, you may have a small roll of skin that is hanging over the fabric at your back. To even out the skin, have a bridesmaid insert a finger between your back and the dress, running her finger from the middle of your back around to your side.
6.DO NOT BEND IN YOUR GOWN FOR 20 MINS TO ALLOW THE FABRIC AND ZIPPER TO WARM UP!
7.Get your bridesmaids to help you put your shoes on, if you forgot!
Lift the skirt of the gown and smooth down any petticoat layers.
Make sure that your bridesmaids keep their lipstick away from the fabric.
Be sure to handle fabrics gently to avoid creasing.
8.Pack your zipper bag that your gown was supplied in into your overnight bag, so the morning after you can carry your gown and his suit home, rather than a garbage bag supplied from the hotel!
FINALLY ENJOY YOUR DRESS & YOUR SPECIAL DAY!!
