So you’ve bought a wedding dress for the most special day of your life, and… now what? A wedding dress is an expensive investment, therefore it deserves to stay in the best possible shape. Even after it’s fulfilled its purpose on your big day, your wedding dress holds many valuable memories and values that you will carry with you throughout married life. Therefore, we can help you to be sure that your wedding dress is the perfect fit for the day of the wedding, and that it stays in pristine condition for years to come.
Unless you’ve gotten a dress that is custom fit to your body, you’ll likely need alterations to be sure there are no ill-fitting parts. Just imagine: you’re strutting elegantly down the aisle in front of all of your friends and family. It’s the moment you’ve always dreamed about. You’re walking on air — and you’re walking on your wedding dress, you’re tripping, you’re falling… That’s your life without alterations. Scary, right? But not to worry, you’re not doomed to this fate. With the proper planning, you can avoid wedding-day disasters like these.
Most fittings will require three trips: one fitting three months prior to your wedding to discuss any changes to your dress; one fitting a month prior to the wedding to check your measurements; and a third fitting one week before the wedding, in which we’ll work out the final tweaks.
Dress Preservation & Cleaning
So the wedding is over, and you may not know what to do with your dress. Sadly, this is the case for many people, and they will typically get caught up in the festivities of newly married life before they even think to tend to and preserve their valuable wedding dress. This is a travesty, seeing as many stains (and especially those from alcohol and sugary treats) tend to sink deeper into your clothes, making them even harder to remove as time goes on. Your wedding day was surely festive, and it is unlikely that your dress survived unscathed. For that reason, you should make sure to bring your wedding dress to Rose Cleaners ASAP (preferably a few days after the wedding) to ensure that your dress will be returned to its pristine condition and remain that way for years to come.
