Organise a dress rehearsal within two weeks of the wedding to ensure your style works with your outfit – and make-up, if possible.
Consider what you're going to do with your hair if you're changing from your bridal outfit during the reception. Will your style comb out well or can your stylist advise you on an in-between style you can create yourself? Make a list of the things you'll need a bridesmaid to be carrying, like grips, a tail comb – you'll need the pointed end to tease out any dressed sections that may collapse during the day - and a handbag-sized can of hairspray for last-minute support or repair work. .
