So, be mindful of how much you’re spending on your alterations. And this is why you need to do your homework and be clear about what you’re looking for. That way, it shouldn’t take a lot of time.

4. Carry Your Bridal Undergarments & Footwear For The Bridal Fitting
You must carry undergarments and footwear that you plan to wear with your bridal outfit. The reason behind this is that you need to know how your undergarments fit under your bridal dress. Many times lingerie gives a very outline to your bridal lehenga/gown, which is not what you’d want. Or sometimes the straps don’t sit well under the dress. As for footwear, you need to know how high or low your heels are so that your hemlines are adjusted accordingly.

4. Go With A Friend Or A Trusted Family Member
Always take your closest friends or family members with you for the bridal fitting. You could take your best friend, maid of honor, your sister, or your mother. The reason behind this is that you need a second opinion. And it’s important to make sure that whoever is accompanying you isn’t a ‘yes man’, you need the truth. So ask your companion to be honest with their opinions so that you know how and what the dress looks like on you. They may also be able to add some great suggestions of their own. And it’s always easy to talk to your tailor/seamstress/designer about alterations when there’s someone backing you upon it.

5. Be Vocal About Your Needs
It is very important to be vocal about your needs when it comes to bridal fitting. You don’t want to regret not voicing your opinion about your wedding dress. Many people are often shy to speak up because they think that their point may be invalid. That’s not the case here, we’re sure your designer/tailor/seamstress wants you to fit into that dress and love the end result as much as you do. No matter how many alterations or adjustments it takes to finally come to the perfect fit, you let them know.
6. Mind The Weight
No no, we’re not here to say that you need to lose the weight to look your best. What we mean here is that your weight is bound to fluctuate from the first day of the fitting till the wedding day. So be mindful about your weight while you get your fitting done. If you’re planning to lose some weight for your wedding day, then let your tailor know about the last-minute alterations that might be needed. The same goes for if you happen to gain some.
