Brides wait to walk down the aisle in a beautiful wedding gown, eyes fixated on their partner. But carrying it gracefully throughout the day can be a challenge. No need to fret. This blog presents three ways you can carry your wedding dress with poise and elegance on your big day and capture beautiful memories for years to come.
Bustle It Up
A bustle is a way of tying up the train of a wedding dress to make it more manageable to move around in. This style was popularized by Princess Diana, who had a 25-foot train on her wedding gown. Meghan Markle also followed suit and chose a bustle for her gown designed by Claire Waight Keller before changing into her second outfit by Stella McCartney.
A bustle can be created by attaching hooks, loops, or buttons to the back of the dress to lift the train off the ground.
Consider a Shorter Hemline
A shorter hemline is another option for brides who want to move around freely on their wedding day. Celeb Olivia Palermo is a great example of a bride who chose a shorter hemline. She wore a three-piece outfit on her wedding day, which included a cream-colored tulle skirt with a high-low hemline that showed off her shoes.
This option is perfect for brides who want to dance the night away without worrying about tripping over their wedding gown.
Practice walking in advance
Once you've brought your dress home, practice walking in it a few times before the big day. This will give you an opportunity to get used to the weight and movement of the gown. You may also consider asking the bridal boutique staff to help you carry it gracefully.
