What to Wear to Get Ready for Your Big Day
Deciding what to wear on the morning of your wedding can be tough. You don’t want to sit around in your wedding outfit until it’s time to go. Eating and drinking while wearing your gown isn’t a great idea. Plus you don’t want to put your makeup on while wearing it either.
Should you even bother getting dressed? Well, you might not want to sit around in your pajamas or a robe all morning. If you’re trying to decide what to wear, there are a few things you need to consider.
Wear Something You Can Easily Slip Off
One thing to keep in mind is that you don’t want to have to pull something over your head. You’ll spend the morning having a professional make sure that you look perfect, and you don’t want to ruin it. That’s why it makes sense to wear something that you can easily slip off.
First, there’s the classic robe. Or for a new trend, you could choose a dress or a jumpsuit that you can slide off your shoulders. At the online Filly Flair boutique, you can find some pretty and comfortable options. If you need an extra layer and don’t want to wear a robe, choose a cardigan or a zip-up hoodie.
Reconsider Your Bra If Your Dress Is Strapless
If your wedding dress is strapless, think carefully before putting on a bra in the morning. It could leave marks. Then you’ll be left hoping they will go away before it’s time to walk down the aisle.
In that case, you might want to wear a strapless bra or go without. Even a bra that fits well can leave marks. However, if your straps leave bright red marks, they’re probably too tight. If you’ve got a bra to wear with your dress, the best thing to do is put that on when you get up.
Choose Something That Will Look Good in Photos
Taking photos of the bride getting ready on the morning of her wedding is a modern tradition. Although not all brides decide that they want to do it.
If you are going to have some photos taken, pick an outfit that you’re happy to have captured on camera. So you might want to give your ratty old pajamas a rest. You could go with a classic silk robe, but you might also want to get dressed in something casual.
Go Matching With Your Bridesmaids
Wearing matching robes with your bridesmaids is a cute idea. Getting ready with them is one last chance for you to have some girl time before your big day. A plus is you can create some great photos too.
It also gives everyone a nice gift that they can keep. It’s best not to expect them to buy their own robe on top of their bridesmaid outfit. They will be so thankful for the gesture.
Feel Your Best
Your “getting ready” outfit might not be as important as what you’re wearing to get married, but it’s still worth some thought if you want to look and feel good on the morning of your wedding.
