7 Fashion Hacks Every Bride Should Know!

WHAT REALLY IS IN A WEDDING PLANNER’S E-KIT +
WHAT YOUR SEAMSTRESS HAS TO TELL YOU!

Hi there- your gal pal Liz here, your in-house Marketing Coordinator/ former Assistant Wedding Planner + Jack of all Trades! I can’t wait to share with you some fashion hacks I’ve learned in my 10+ years working in the wedding industry! I’ll be going over everything from some day-of must haves to keep in your E-Kit (aka Emergency Kit) to what you can do leading up to the big day to ensure everything is perfect! Say au revoir to those pesky bridal nightmares, pinched toes, the unruly veil + the pestering strap that refuses to stay up, plus so much more, be sure to scroll down!

Prior to finding my current home at A Little Something White I had the privilege of working with the rockstars over at  Amy Champagne Events (they truly are prepared for everything) – can I just tell you the little E-Kit J-Lo wears around her waist in the movie “The Wedding Planner” (you know exactly the one I’m talking about) is a real thing! Some dress essentials I had with me were a sewing kit, white chalk (for mild stains), even safety pins (a must to ensure a quick repair for a torn bustle)! I’m surprised there wasn’t a replacement dress in there to be honest, that’s how amazing we were! Some other day of essentials I recommend are: mini scissors, bobby pins, double sided tape, Tide pen, travel hair spray, lip gloss, sun screen for your shoulders (in case it’s an outdoor wedding), static guard (for the colder months), travel spray deodorant, band-aids, pain/ stomach medicine, mini water bottles, floss + mints!

It’s time to equip yourself with the knowledge that the Pro’s have known for decades! Happy Scrolling Ladies!

1. PINCHED TOES NO MORE!

Just like a seamstress should be your best friend, a shoe repair shop or (in this case) a shoe shaper should be your pair of Manolo’s best friend! From flats to 6″ heels, the company Formé has revolutionized the industry. Formé wings expand the toe box up to a ½ size, relieving numb + cramped toes. Prevents wrinkles + creasing so shoes stay looking new!

2. TAMING THE UNRULY VEIL!

If any part of your wedding day is outdoors, know that wind LOVES veils! These dainty little pearls are the perfect solution to avoid a veil fiasco. Our friends at FloraNorth are here to help with their chic Veil Weights retailing for $20 for a set of 10. The weights are held together by magnets (meaning no damage to your veil), so simply place the veil in between the magnets, either along the trim or scattered throughout. Voilà, you have yourself a veil that won’t ruin your ceremony!

3. LIFTING + SEPARATING!

Peel, Stick + GO! Perky Pear is the perfect match for a plunging neckline or for the bride who doesn’t want to worry about shifting all night long. With multiple styles available, you’ll definitely find the right fit! We’ve personally used these in store for brides up to a cup size GGG! Wowzers, to say these pears are AMAZING is a gross understatement! Don’t fret…we have them in stock!

4. SCUFF FREE SOLES!

Another Peal, Stick + GO, these sole protectors from Sole Guard USA are definitely the way to go for those red bottom shoes, or even the “I DO” inscription written on the bottom of your bridal shoes! Make sure they stay scuff-free from the alterations to the Big Day!

5. THE LOW BACK, PLUNGING FRONT SOLUTION!

Spanx baby! This shape wear is one that most of our brides purchase…with 5 ways to wear it, this solves most, if not all, issues! Strapless dress with a lower back? Try the strapless version!

6. SAY GOODBYE TO STRAPS THAT SLIP!

This next one is such a game changer, you’re going to want to use it in your every day life! Have you ever wondered how professional dancers can wear those tight outfits, yet never have a wardrobe malfunctions? Ready for the inside scoop? They use BODY ADHESIVE! We’re excited to introduce JOMI Roll-On Body Adhesive, which has an easy apply roll on applicator. Just roll it on, let it dry enough to become tacky, and apply the strap or fabric you desire to keep in place. After the big night it washes off with soap and water. The best part is it’s even sweat proof, so dance your heart out ladies because there will be NO wardrobe malfunction for you!

7. FITNESS QUEENS- METAL WEIGHTS DAMAGING YOUR RING?

For those of us who have worked out with our engagement rings on + experienced that feeling of dread when grabbing a weight + hear the metals rub together or maybe worse, a weight chips your diamond! Cringe worthy am I right, but you love your ring so much you hate to take it off? Well here’s a couple go to items for our work out goddesses! First up, a genius little invention that was thought up by one of our brides, Emily Bonadies, The Buffr ring protector is a soft silicone band that interlocks with your ring to ensure there are no scuffs, plus they’re available in multiple colors!

7. CONTINUED…

Perfect for those activities we’d prefer not to have our rings on, a day at the beach, hiking or maybe even traveling! Try the Ring Hero, a wrist band that is ideal for easy access afterwards. Available in 3 colors!
