Finding the proper bra, slip, hosiery, etc., is necessary to create the perfect look. Many gowns require special undergarments. Low-line, backless bras and bustiers are made to provide the proper support without showing when and where they shouldn’t. Luckily there are professionals who can help in choosing which undergarments will work the best.
Specialty lingerie shops have the staff who will not only help brides, maids and mothers find the proper undergarment, they will also help them find the perfect fit. Although many women shy away from specialty shops, thinking the price will be much higher, they usually find that the prices are comparable and the service is indispensable. While at the lingerie shop a bride may also find a delicate negligee perfect for the wedding night!
Not only do brides have to deal with what to wear under the gown, some need to be concerned with what to wear over it as well. Weddings take place in all seasons, and in this area, it can be cold! Many bridal gowns are strapless or sleeveless, which can be challenging in the cooler seasons of fall, winter and spring. Brides, mothers, and the attendants often do not own the appropriate cape, coat or wrap to wear on such a formal occasion. That’s where businesses that rent capes and other outerwear come in handy, providing a variety of styles of velvet, satin, sheer organza or faux fur garments are available to complement any gown.
