5 Tips for a Smooth Dress Fitting Process

So you’ve made one of the biggest wedding decisions yet—choosing your dress—and you found THE perfect one. Yay! But did you know that the dress fitting process can be just as (if not more) important? Take it from this designer-turned-Bride whose dress fitting we’re getting a behind the scenes peek at today, along with her 5 tips to make the process smooth as ever. Clary Pfeiffer captured it all and we’re straight up drooling over the detail—that bow! See it all here.

From the Bride… I wanted my gown to be simple yet novel. My business partner and I decided on a form-fitting spaghetti strap gown with a scooped neckline and low back. We sourced the fabric locally in New York City and loved the embroidery on mesh because it wasn’t a typical bridal lace. It reminded me of architectural elements in the city that I see and love everyday. We lined it in a nude so you could see the details in photographs. I’ve always loved the femininity of a bow, so we crafted a removable structured bow belt in ivory silk wool. The bow accentuated my waist and offered an element of surprise when I turned around. What is so cool about my wedding gown is that many of the fabrications were repurposed fabrics from previous projects! It was special knowing that nothing went to waste and we were able to create a beautiful gown.

5 Tips for a Smooth Dress Fitting Process

Take a walk and have a seat

When trying on your dress, it’s important to think about the activities at your wedding: are you able to walk in it? Sit in it comfortably? Can you dance in it? Make sure you think ahead. Relay this information to your seamstress so she can make the changes accordingly.

Choose your shoes

It’s always best to make the dress longer than you’d want and then hem it to the perfect length at the very end of your fittings once you’ve determined what shoes you’ll wear. You don’t want to risk the hem being too short!

Bras matter

At your first fitting, you can work with your seamstress to determine what type of bra would be best for the dress. Some dresses may need pasties, some dresses may need more support or padding. At your next fitting, determine the bra you want to wear and fit it with the dress for a perfect fit.

Know your angles

We made a custom gown for a bride who wanted an embellishment on one side of her dress. We asked her which side would be photographed the most and decided on her right side because she will be standing that way at the altar. Think about where you will be photographed and make sure your embellishments and best features will be showing!

Speak up!

You know your body best and if there is something that looks off to you, don’t be afraid to ask questions and make changes.

Titanic Inspired Wedding Editorial – Vintage Meets Glam

Sitting among Philadelphia’s Main Line private schools is the historic Baldwin School. Built in the 19th century, the Frank Furness-designed building makes for an impressive backdrop for a wedding.

Shannon Wellington Weddings teamed up with Fresh Designs Florist to create a little magic. And with its Victorian and Industrial era aesthetic, they couldn’t help but feel that The Baldwin School was a natural fit for a modern day Titanic inspired shoot. And lucky for us, Hudson Nichols Photography was there to capture it all!

From the team, “We worked with Conner Catering to create a table befitting of a luxury cruise liner. Tall taper candles in modern glass holders paired with boldly colored florals gave an ancient event a modern twist.”

“Of course, while the sinking of the Titanic was a great tragedy, we looked to the modern Titanic film interpretation for romantic inspiration.”

“Our model was every bit as lovely and glamorous as Rose DeWitt Bukater in her satin beaded gown, rubies and red heels, all reminiscent of the flapper era.”

“Her descent down the grand staircase had us all remembering the look on Leonardo di Caprio’s face when Kate Winslet did the same in the film.”
