Wedding Day Preparations – Putting On Your Tea Length Wedding Dress

Wedding Day Preparations

When it gets to your wedding day preparation you may find that the timeline you put together has gone out the window. There are lots of ways to make sure the pressure doesn’t get too much. We have put together a few reminders for your wedding day preparations when it comes to hair, makeup and that all important tea length wedding dress.

When Should I put my Tea Length Wedding Dress on?

Make Up & Hair

It’s best for your hairdresser of choice to start on the bridesmaids first. You can take a bit of extra time to relax and enjoy yourself. This will probably be an early start – especially if you have quite a few bridesmaids.

The bride needs to go last so that hair and make up is at its freshest. This also allows for time with the photographer or videographer so that they can get those all important getting ready images.

Tea Length Wedding Dress

It may seem like a long wait but putting on your short wedding dress should be one of the last things you do. So make sure it’s hung up and ready with all your accessories until the time comes.

Olivia by Timeless Chic is from the High Low collection. It has a wonderful dropped hem at the back to give a luxurious train whilst still maintaining a beautiful tea length wedding dress length at the front. Covered in dainty polka dots and featuring intricate embroidery this is a stunning short wedding dress.

Ask your bridesmaids to help you get into it so that you don’t snag it or ruin your hair. Take it slowly and allow extra time, you need to feel perfectly comfortable and happy.


Now is the time to add your accessories, if you are having a veil it’s a good idea to ask your hairstylist to fit it for you. Jewellery and shoes can now be put on as you do final make up touches.

The Final Twirl

Have a slow twirl in front of a mirror to make sure everything is where it should be and feels right. Then take final photographs and get ready to go off and get married. Now your wedding day preparations are over and you can enjoy your day.
