Here at D&B Tailors, there’s no job too big or small for us. Our Master Designer Gabe D’Annunzio performs the fittings himself, from hemming pants to completely reconstructing or even replicating wedding garments.
It’s important to remember that neither too early or last minute is good for any alterations to be made. We recommend bringing in your wedding suits and gowns 2-3 months from the first fitting to the last. For a reference, typically a bride comes in for 3 or 4 fittings.
It is important to not only bring your wedding gown or suit for a fitting, but also make sure to have your undergarments, shoes and accessories as well. It’s all about the proper fit and length! If you can’t bring you exact wedding shoes, bring a similar pair.
Just because your wedding is over, it doesn’t mean you have to forget about your wedding dress. After all, you spent hours and months on finding the right one. Now you’re just going to throw it in the closet, or worse, the attic?
There are certain techniques and solutions to make sure you prolong your gown’s existence and quality. You never know if you might need that dress again (give it to your friend or sell it), but it’s always good to do your best preserving that dress of your dreams.
Our dry cleaning experts at D&B Tailors are sharing tips on How To Preserve Your Wedding Dress, so you don’t have to worry about losing its value!
4 Tips On Preserving Your Wedding Dress
- Dry Cleaning. Bring your dress to the cleaners after the wedding. Don’t wait until it’s too late! Getting your gown professionally cleaned will prolong it’s value and ensure better storage.
- Storing conditions.Finding the right box and ultimate storage conditions are vital here. It’s usually the moisture that ruins the dress, so make sure it is kept in the place where temperature stays the same. Remember, keep it cool and dry!
- Out of sight. Whatever you do, keep your dress away from the direct light! Otherwise, the next time you decide to look at your dress, it won’t be as white…
- Handle with Care. To preserve your gown’s shape, we recommend storing your dress in a box rather than hanging it in the closet. The weight of the dress can potentially stretch and distort the gown that used to fit you so well.
