5 Things to Do After You've Purchased Your Wedding Dress

Just because you've found "the one" doesn't mean that your gown-shopping extravaganza is complete. Make sure you cross these items off your to-do list before you head down the aisle.

Order Your Bridesmaid Dresses
Now that you know the style of your gown, you can begin researching bridesmaid dresses, decide on one you love and place an order. Match fabrics or design details for a bridal party (and pictures) that looks pulled together.

Decide on Your "Something Blue"
Whether you plan to pin a piece of blue ribbon to the inside of your dress like Kate Middleton did, or you'd rather slip into a pair of blue peep toes and accessorize with sapphire gems, don't let this lucky charm become a source of stress by waiting until the last minute to pick it out.

Select Your Shoes
The shoes you plan to wear on your wedding day are a must-have for the first fitting, as the height of the heel will completely change the hem length of your gown.

Select Your Wedding Rings
Your wedding day ensemble is only complete once you're wearing your brand-new wedding ring. Make sure you've chosen and ordered both rings with plenty of time to spare. We suggest having rings in hand two months before the wedding.

Pick a Hiding Spot
Once your fittings are done and your gown is ready for the aisle, you'll need a place to store it where your groom can't sneak a peek. Some salons will hold it until just days before the wedding (start there!).
