Pay-off . . . left, Kate Waterhouse with husband Luke Ricketson; above, Kate's dad, Rob, takes a break from dress shopping. Main photo: Vincenzo Santarella like JLo, they look amazing -- but in my opinion, it's the hardest style to fit. Basically, you need to be super toned (because the back bulge is not a good look), yet have big boobs to fill the dress and long legs so the exaggerated skirt doesn't make you look stumpy. So for ''skinny-no-boobs me'', the princess-style dresses just made me look like an eight-year-old girl playing dress-ups. Those toilet- dolly style dresses wore me, I didn't wear them. But for some reason, it was impossibly difficult to explain to shop assistants that I wanted to step outside the box. I even had an evil shop assistant from Saks Fifth Avenue try to steer me away from the dress I wanted (and ended up buying) to an OTT princess-style dress by explaining: ''The dress you like is fine if you don't mind half the wedding party wearing practically the same dress as you, just in a different colour.'' And when I dared to say I was thinking of wearing only a half veil, she simply looked at me and said: ''What's the point of having a veil at all?'' When it comes to wedding-dress shop assistance, ''understated'' is not a word that comes naturally. But from a fashion point of view, wedding-dress shopping really is an experience. Vera Wang was the ultimate in haute couture; everything from having your own personal assistant taking you through the shop to look at the most beautiful and delicate fabrics and details, to being measured up for your custom-fitted gown, you really do feel like a princess for a day. But remember to get on to the dress early because it can take up to six months to be made and wedding-dress shops are not like usual shops; appointments must be made well in advance. Everyone always tells you ''don't sweat the small stuff '' and that really is the best advice you can get, but the best way of achieving this is to be super organised. From my experience of getting married in Italy, reference images are central to getting the right look and feel for your wedding. I sent images of everything from bouquets, table settings, chairs, hair and make-up. Mood boards become your best friend and once everyone is on the same page, it's a lot easier to make your dream wedding come true. To help you, I've put together a to- do list (above) that I used in preparation for the big day. TO-DO LIST Finalise the guest list. Finalise a date. Book a venue. Organise a caterer. Book a photographer. Shop for wedding dress and bridesmaids' dresses. Choose suits for groom and groomsmen. Organise music. Organise the florist. Choose a wedding cake. Book transport. Send out invitations. Make hotel reservations for interstate guests. Book hair and make-up artist. Choose readings, music, and/or prayers for the service. Print menus, place cards and/or church booklets. Choose wedding band. Write vows. Choose bonbonnieres.
