Wedding Gown Preservation (and more!)

According to wedding experts, numerous ceremonies postponed in 2020 will be taking place in 2021. In fact, many believe there will be up to 40% more weddings this year than in a typical year.

And, that's where we come in.

We can preserve your gown after the big day; however, in preparation for your wedding, we can alter your gown (see our seamstress Olga), and, we can press, hang and deliver the gown on your wedding day.* After the wedding? We'll preserve your dress, and box it for storage until -- someday -- a child or relative wishes to wear it again.

As you begin your search for that most perfect dress, here are a few tips for the five most popular wedding dress materials.

Silk Faille: This material creates some of the most classic shapes with little fuss, but the weight of the material will allow you to opt for silhouettes that are more dramatic than the rest.

Flowy Chiffon: When you’re seeking out that ethereal look, consider a silk chiffon. It’s more forgiving than a classic lightweight silk weave and more breathable for layering purposes as well. If you’re looking for that gown that moves with the wind but doesn’t reveal every dip and curve of your body, go for chiffon.

Heavy Lace: If you want a simple silhouette that will make a bold statement, consider crafting your wedding dress out of a heavy embroidered lace. The fabric is a head-turner all on its own, so you could choose anything from a simple tank maxi to a full-blown princess moment and you’re sure to have a gown that wows.

Woven Cotton: Lightweight woven cotton is a great option that requires little fuss. For a bohemian look, we particularly love slightly embellished styles, by way of embroidery, eyelet, or lace insets.

Tulle: For the whimsy in you, go for a silhouette made of tulle. You can opt for a more form fitting shape that boasts a gathered and ruched texture made of the elegant mesh or a more full-skirted ballgown shape that stuns in a true princess moment.
