Five Tips No One Tells You About Your First Bridal Fitting

Five Tips No One Tells You About Your First Bridal Fitting

Finally fitting your wedding gown is both exciting and nerve-wracking! After months and months of hunting, trying out endless gowns and waiting for its initial completion, you will be able to see the result of your hard work and careful planning. However, did you know that your first wedding gown fitting is, probably, more important than you can imagine?

Yes! It is true! However, not everyone will tell you about the things you need to look out for during your first bridal gown fitting. Fitting is even more important especially if your gown is from a singapore bridal gown rental boutique, like Z Wedding, as dresses from these bridal shops are pre-made where the size variation is very small.

To help you ease your worries, here are a few tips to making the most from your first bridal gown fitting. Let us read more about it below:

Wear Your Heels On The Actual Day Of Your Fitting
You do not have to wear the exact bridal shoes that you will be using for your wedding. Wearing a pair of shoes with the same heel size and length can help you envision how you will look like on the actual day of your wedding. Wedding gownslike Z Wedding’s Origami collection, tend to look even better when worn with heels as you can also check if the length is just right or if it needed to be shortened a bit more.

Bring A Trusted Girl Friend, Sister, Or Family Member With You
While the preferences for your wedding gown will rely on you and your stylist or designer alone, having an outsider opinion is usually very useful. They might see something you have missed and they can give their few cents for the overall improvement of your bridal gown.

Expect Your First Fitting To Happen Six Weeks Before Your Wedding
Couturiers usually require you to have an initial fitting six weeks prior to your wedding to see if the size fits you just right or if there are any alterations to be made. On your first bridal gown fitting, it usually includes adding in details or adjusting the size and length of the gown to achieve the perfect ensemble.

Your Undergarments Are Very Important
It is safe to say that you also have to decide on an appropriate set of undergarments that you will be using for your wedding. Select a set wherein comfort, functionality, and fitting are the top priorities. Your silhouette is also very important, as you do not want random bra and panty lines all over the place.

Expect Alterations
As mentioned, your first fitting is not the last time you will try on your gown or do some changes on your wedding gown. There are still the second and third fittings to decide on alterations or accessories.

Creating the perfect wedding gown for your dream wedding definitely takes time but it will be all worth it in the end. Best wishes! If you will like to find out more about Z Wedding Design, feel free to give us a call at 6337 2678 or drop us an email at for more information.
