Do you know that your choice of wedding dress is almost as essential to your guests as it is to you? That’s not all there is to it. There are other things that your wedding guests will remember long after the event. While some factors might be out of your control, there are a few things you can do to make sure that your wedding day is memorable in the best way possible.
Let’s start by recognising those wedding details that are so easily forgotten but have the potential of ruining what would have otherwise been the perfect day.
Early alterations of the wedding dress
If you want to feel and look great, you have to ensure that your dress of choice fits like a charm and leaves a lasting impression on your guests. After all, all eyes will be on you on that day. You and your gown are the highlight of the whole event, and the guests will scrutinise every detail and of course, say just how beautiful you were.
While finding and settling on the right bridal gown is often a huge relief, it is not the end of that difficult journey. You also have to ensure that it fits as perfectly and comfortably as possible. Most wedding dresses often require some alterations, which will add on to the final cost of the gown. Therefore, ensure you have budgeted for this as well. According to experts, wedding dress alterations should be done two or three months to the day. Do them too early, and you might have a wrong fit since you could gain or lose weight as the months go by. If you, however, forget about this critical detail and do it too late, you will run the risk of having a hurriedly done job.
Have one of your bridesmaids learn how to bustle your bridal dress
Since you will be in your dress on your wedding day, you will not be able to bustle it. You will need an experienced hand on standby since bustle points are terribly delicate. Your helper should have enough sewing accessories to tend to an emergency should a bustle point break while it is being put on or while you are walking or dancing.
Bustles are also tailored to allow a quick takedown. This factor transforms wedding dresses to train-less dresses that will enable dancing, mingling, and walking after the exchange of rings.

An over bustle has several bustle pick up points to give it the desired dramatic look. One of your bridesmaids should accompany you to your bridal gown fittings to learn from your tailor, how to properly attach or detach the bustle.
Get a designated wedding wrangler for photos
Well-fitted wedding dresses make the perfect centerpieces for a large amount of photography that will happen on that day. It’s essential to make a shot list. You might, however, forget to select amongst your close relatives, a ‘photo wrangler.’ Your wrangler has to be a person that knows all your close relatives so that they can fish them from any corner of the venue and reel them in for the photos. This will save you a lot of time, especially if you are on a race to get the photography done at sunset, the golden hour for photography.
Taking these tips into consideration will ensure you have got those tiny, but important details covered. All that is left to do is to enjoy your wedding night
