Wedding dress shopping is one of the most special + memorable parts of planning a wedding! From spending the day with your loved ones, to finding the style that makes you feel the most confident, this day should be filled with celebration for you + your upcoming big day. If you’re wondering what to wear at your bridal appointment, don’t you worry, we’ve put together a list that will help you plan for this exciting event!

Neutral Undergarments

When trying on wedding dresses, you’ll want to wear undergarments that are neutral to your skin tone + that will show as little as possible. A bra isn’t necessary, as you may take it off to try on certain styles [to your comfortability], but if you do choose to wear one, make sure it’s comfortable + breathable! While shape wear is not needed or required, feel free to bring it or throw it on under your clothes in preparation for your appointment, if it’ll make you feel the most beautiful or confident throughout the process! If you are planning on wearing shape wear on your wedding day, it’s best to have it with you, so that you can envision and feel the complete look!


When heading out the door for you appointment, be sure to wear shoes that you can take on + off easily, as you’ll be in and of dresses for about 2 hours! If you’re planning on wearing heels for the big day, we also recommend bringing your wedding day shoes, or shoes that are similar in height, to your appointment.


We have robes for our brides to slip into between gown options, so don’t worry about putting your outfit back on in between fittings. Wear something that you feel comfortable, confident and beautiful in, because once you say YES, it’s time for a photo-op!
