1) If your waist is an asset and you don’t need a corset (gee… that seems to rhyme) to flatten it, then don’t ever wear one! You are going to “duduk bersimpuh and control ayu” for almost an hour (or more) and the least thing you need is suffocating in your own wedding dress. I did not wear a corset during Nikah and Reception (I was advised by my sis), but I did wear one at the reception on my husband’s side. God, I could barely breathe, let alone swallow my food! And that was sitting on a chair!
2) Always try on the whole outfit (including scarf, veil, shoes, everything) and parade in front of the mirror at least a night before the wedding day. You need to get a rough idea how you’re gonna look like and prepare for any last-minute changes, if any.
3) Have at least 1 extra scarf (tudung) and serkup (anak tudung) if you’re gonna wear one, bcoz you never know how the Makeup Artist or mak andam or whoever in charge of helping you with your tudung is going to do it. You don’t wanna risk having a bad-tudung-day on your special day now, do you?
