Hi, I'm Lacy Pool, Co-Owner of Grayson Elise Styling and Accessories. And I'm here with my partner Jessica Epstein and we're gong to show you how to put on a wedding dress or a stock bridal gown. So, a lot of wedding gown shops will do it differently; this, however I believe is the best way. So, what we're going to do is take a stock bridal gown and when you come in, it's, it's important to have on the right undergarments. We usually like using strapless long line bras and if you're, if you're a little bit modest, maybe think about wearing some long undergarments such as Spanx. So, what the bridal salon should do is have you put your arms out like this, gather up the dress and we're going to put your in the gown, arms facing first and then trail it through the back. This is the easiest way to get into many of the dresses with the fuller skirts. Come around, and not every sample size gown is going to fit every bride. So, there are special ways of getting each gown to show you how it's going to come and when it's in your size and how it's going to look. So, this is how we're going to do it for this stock piece in a bridal gowns or in a bridal shop setting. So, for the day after wedding, "I'm going to have you step out Jessica; thank you very much", so the day of the wedding, you're going to have your full make up done and your full bridal hair, so the best way to get into a gown on the day of your wedding is to get the gown on the floor, clean floor and make a nice little hole to make it easy to step in, have somebody assist the bride, stepping into the dress making sure that you find your proper footing onto the floor, pulling the dress above, attaching it behind. Make sure the photographer's present when you get into the gown, doing the additions, zipping up or corseting a dress, makes some, some really pretty pictures. So, this is the way how to properly get into a wedding dress.
