The wedding day is the most awaited day by every bride (if not every girl). It is the day that you finally get to walk down the aisle and fulfill your childhood dream. It is the day that all eyes will be on you – it is your day.
That said, there is usually no room left for accidents or mistakes. Everything has to be perfect, and this also applies to getting in and out of a limo ride in your wedding dress.
It is normal for most brides to overlook this part especially if it is not their first limo ride. However, here are the best tips on how to get in and out of a limo in your wedding gown.
There is an art of getting into the limo. This part fully depends on your wedding dress. If you went to the bridal store and picked the most voluminous dress available then you need to learn this art.
Make sure that your hands are free – If you are holding your bouquet, just give it to someone else (your mother, bridesmaids or the limo driver).
Hold someone’s hand – This is the worst time for you to start playing “miss independent,” take someone’s hand and proceed to the next step.
Start with the back – The best way to get into a limo is by starting with the back. Sit down and do not make any attempt of “stepping into” the car. Bring your feet into the limo. Finally, make sure that your entire wedding dress is in the limo including your veil and do not make any attempt to close the door. Instead, let someone else do it for you.
Getting out of the limo is an art as well. How you get out of your limo ride also fully depends on the design of your wedding gown. If it is voluminous, then follow the steps listed below:
Do not make any attempt to open the door – let someone else do it for you to make things easier.
Let go of anything you are holding. It is important to make sure that both of your hands are free to increase your level of stability. Therefore, if you were holding your bouquet, give it to someone else or leave on the next seat.
Watch out for any mud, puddles or potholes before you step out of the limo. We do not want any ugly stains on your gown in your wedding photos.
Get your feet out first – get your feet out of the car, hold someone’s hand and swivel the rest of your body out. Make sure that your entire gown is out of the car including your veil. Do not attempt to close the door, let someone else do it for you.
Before taking your next trip to a limo rental service or a party bus rental service, it is important to keep in mind the kind of dress you will be wearing.
Some wedding dresses can be limiting to some extent but with the right tips such as the ones given above, you can still have the best limo ride in your perfect bridal dress. Is that the sound of wedding bells ringing?
