Truth be told, crafting a bespoke, stylish wedding is not an easy task. But after good decision making during your wedding planning process, the day of your wedding should be calm and serene. To assist you on having a stress free wedding day experience while looking fabulous, we reach out to bridal designer extraordinaire, Rosa Clará to get a few tips for our sophisticated brides on their big days. We know you love her dresses, so take note on Rosa Clará’s best advice for you because getting tips from a queen of bridal doesn’t come this easy!
1. Be Prepared
To be calm on your wedding day, make sure your dress, shoes, headpiece and everything you need to get ready is at the getting-ready location a couple of days before the wedding. It can also be very useful to have a bridal kit on hand with all you could use in case of an emergency.
2. Buy a Bridal Robe
Wearing a bridal robe while getting ready will make you feel comfortable and look fabulous in your wedding photos. Get some robes for your bridesmaids as well, to snap some memorable and fun pics.
3. The Perfect Hair
By now, you probably already discussed your wedding hair look with your hairstylist. Hey, you may even have had a hair-rehearsal date. So the morning of the big day sit in front of a mirror and make sure your hairstylist does your hair the way you had envisioned. Feel free to make any comments if there is anything you don’t like. And to complement your beautiful hairdo, check out Rosa Clará’s dreamy collection of hair ornaments and veils.
4. Have something in your belly!
It is important to eat before your “I do’s”. Even if you are nervous, having something in your belly will help you avoiding feeling sick. Eat something light and healthy. A salad, a sandwich, or even yogurt and fruit will be enough to give you the energy to carry on with the most important day of your life.
5. Does your dress have buttons?
If your wedding dress has buttons - like this stunning lace number from Rosa Clará - a needle will be very helpful to have on hand. It will assist your mom and bridesmaids while helping you get dressed to get all the buttons on your gorgeous gown without having any difficulties.
6. Breaking in Your Wedding Shoes
After buying a pair of comfortable, yet fabulous shoes, trying them on days before your wedding is a must. Start with baby steps. Wear your new shoes around the house, and on short outings several times before taking them down the aisle. To help you debut your shoes with minimal pain and zero limp-inducing blisters, have some skin-tone band-aids in different sizes and shapes on hand. And if you don’t have your wedding shoes yet, don’t fail to visit Rosa Clará’s website and check out their beautiful selection of stilettos for the big day.
7. The Last Touches!
When you are all dolled up, dressed in your dream bridal gown and ready to walk down the aisle, ask your Maid of Honor to check everything and make sure you look picture perfect.
8. Enter and Exit the Nuptial Car
To gracefully enter and exit the car, the simplest things to do so you don’t mess up the dress is to enter through the left door and exit from the right. Don’t complicate the exit with a bouquet or other accessories, hand all that to the driver or your bridal party. Let your wedding team collect the train, check makeup one more time, hand you back the bouquet, snap the “car exit” photo and applaud the most graceful of exits.
9. How to carry the bouquet
The biggest mistake brides make when carrying their bouquet is either holding it at the wrong angle in front of them or carrying it backwards altogether. Most bouquet’s flowers are arranged with a front angle in mind, and the same idea applies to the stem wrap and accents on the bouquet handle. Carry your bouquet by your hip height, with the flowers and other elements always looking forward.
10. Be Yourself!
There is nothing more radiant than a woman’s natural beauty, this is why the Rosa Clará team always suggest their brides to be themselves and just enjoy their day.
