Final touches on wedding gowns

Spring is here and that means weddings! After months of dieting and excercising, the big day is finally near. Before walking down the aisle, don't forget to do a final fitting of your wedding dress two weeks before you say "I do."

Things to consider:
  1. if you still want to use those high stilettos or a more comfortable set of shoes, if this is the case, be sure the hem is the right length

make sure the corset or upper part of the dress has a snug fit, not too tight and unlike popular belief, it IS possible to make a corset bigger if you gained some weight

if the dress has straps or sleeves, check to see if they fall or are too loose, you may have lost more weight than you thought!

Remember, a wedding dress no matter if cheap or expensive, designer or vintage, will only look amazing if it fits perfectly.
