Ask Marsha-Ann: Destination Wedding Attendant
Q: Dear Marsha-Ann,
I am planning on getting married at a Sandals Resort in Jamaica. It’s just going to be the two of us and I was wondering, with my corset wedding dress if there could be someone in place to help me lace it up? I don’t want my groom to see me the morning of the big day! Thank you. -Carrie
A: Dear Carrie,
Congratulations to you! This is a topic that few brides who are planning to elope wonder about until the day of their wedding – having help the morning of the wedding. Choosing to elope and being swept up in the moment can be such a romantic experience; the last thing any bride should be worried about is who will help them into their wedding gown.
To answer your question- yes, there will be someone to help you. You can opt to add a bridal attendant to your wedding booking, which will ensure that you have help to carry out any pre-wedding requests that you may have, such as helping you get dressed. A bridal attendant’s job is to ensure that you have everything you need while getting dressed without the stress of having to do anything yourself. Anything from ice for your bouquets to sourcing extra hair and bobby pins will be under their care. That dreaded bustle is also one less thing you have to worry about with your bridal attendant. They’re there to make sure you’re all taken care of, even while you’re at the spa the morning of your wedding. If you’re a bride who is truly into the “pamper-me, stress free” experience, then you’ll definitely want to look into this option.
While the option to have a bridal attendant is yours to make, all brides have the pleasure of having a dedicated, on-resort wedding planner who will be more than happy to help with last minute details. Whether you need to pin a sash in place or lace up a tricky gown- your wedding planner is there to help sure your day goes as smoothly as possible!
Needless to say Carrie, you won’t have to worry about your soon-to-be husband seeing you in your wedding dress before the big moment.
