TO DO: A TRIAL RUN

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PLANNER -

Part of the magic of the big day is see­ing your whole ensem­ble come to­gether for the first time. For this rea­son, and out of fear of ac­ci­den­tal spills or tears, many brides avoid try­ing on ev­ery­thing ahead of time. But, Rivers says, do­ing a trial run two weeks out can head off mishaps: Don ev­ery­thing— down to your Spanx, strap­less bra, shoes, and veil—ide­ally with a friend who will also be with you on your wed­ding day. Prac­tice sit­ting, walk­ing, lift­ing your hands over your head, and go­ing up and down stairs. “That way, if some­thing pinches, slips, or digs, you have time to re­solve it, ei­ther at home or with your seam­stress,” she says.
