Sure, it may seem like a less important factor than, say, your wedding dress, who’s going to sit where or what kind of flowers you’re going to have… However, it is vital for your wedding morning outfit to fulfil some paramount criteria.
- It must be cute and photogenic.
- It must be button-down, wrap-around, or be able to be stretched to a point where your once done hair and makeup is not disturbed.
- It must set you apart from the rest, so all around you shall know and declare, “These gals are something else. And what’s more, they run this show.”
A short list, but an essential one. It’s what you’ll be wearing for hours on end, while you get your hairs did and your mug makeupped, eat your last supper as a single lady… And of course get your first photos of your wedding day.
Amiga, I have curated a collection of 22 wedding morning getups to help you finalise this vital decision. You’re welcome.

Now this one is smart: you put the date on your robe, wear it every day after the wedding and your hubby will never have the excuse that he forgot your anniversary!
