It may sound simple if I say to “Practice your Dress” but if it was this simple, I wouldn’t be writing an entire blog post about it. Trust me on this one! 🙂
It is very usual that I come across brides who have trouble wearing the dress. They don’t know how the crinoline/jiboon is supposed to be worn. I’ve seen broken zippers and buttons, and what not. To make your wedding day stress-free, here are 5 tips to prepare and practice your dress beforehand.
- Practice wearing your dress at least 3-5 times before the wedding day to be comfortable with the fitting, buttons, zipper, lace, ribbons, etc.
- Know how to wear the dress with the crinoline (aka jiboon – the underskirt to make the ballgown fluffy).
- Try the dress with undergarments to make sure nothing shows & everything fits perfectly. Choose undergarments wisely (ex: strapless garments for strapless dress, etc).
- Wear the shoes/heels to practice walking in the dress. It will also help you be sure that the dress’s length is what you like.
- Last but not least, PLEASEEEEE try sitting in the dress to be 110% sure that it is possible!
Lovely Brides, I hope this blog post is helpful to you. May you shine in your dress like a rockstar princess!

Dearest Mahra & Ahmed,
I feel so proud to call you both my friends ❤ Thank you for your trust in my work and for having me witness you first day as officially-together. I pray to the Almighty that you both get happiness, health, and success in whatever you both do, always & forever. ameen.
I tried to explain them the process.
“Okay guys! We’ll have lots of fun. I need lots of dancing, fun, oh and smiles.”
“I can’t stop smiling!” he said innocently without taking his eyes off of her.
A unanimous “awwwww….” of the entire photo and video team echoed in the room. The rest of the night, the same room was filled with their love ❤
Aysha & Saeed’s engagement was celebrated at a private villa in Sharjah. The majlis room was decorated with a kosha of real flowers by HBG events. Aysha wore a breathtaking dress by Oia, Jumeirah. She carried a unique bouquet from Forever Bride. I think I totally drooled over for her absolutely gorgeous Miu Miu heels.
Dearest Aysha & Saeed,
You two have been ahhhhh-mazingggggg & suuuuuper fun to document. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing your beauty, laughter, dancing, and adorable love. Can’t wait to do it all over again, with tons of more ‘awww..’ moments on your wedding day inshaAllah ❤
Most people look at successful photographers/studios and think it is solely because of their amazing skills and techniques. Let Me. Tell You. The TRUTH!!!!
Honest equation of being a successful photographer/studio = 20% of Photography and 80% BUSI-NESS! (get it, busy-ness/business 😉 )
I’ll tell you what…if you are an aspiring photographer, it is easy to find photography techniques on Google. You may also learn by trial-&-error & self-teaching. But one thing that most people will not teach you is how to run the photography, or in fact ANY, business!
Very very fortunately, I graduated with a business degree (majors: marketing & management – graduated with honors – on full scholarship!) So here is my humble proposal to YOU!
- Do you want to learn about photography business?
- Need help with marketing & social media?
- Wanna learn how to write emails/contracts?
- Need help selling your services?
- Want to build a brand?
- Want to be your own boss?
If you answer YES to at least 2 of the questions above, you wouldn’t want to miss this chance. I’m hosting the very first Rima Hassan Photography’s Mixer on 9th December 2017 from 3pm-5pm in Jumeirah area, Dubai, where I will be answering all of these (and some more…) questions. And YOU are cordially invited. Only a couple of seats are left & registration will close on 7 December 2017. All you need to do is fill out the form on THIS LINK.
I hope you join me to celebrate photography & talk business!
