Almost every bride-to-be has dreadful nightmares about her dream bridal gown and delicately selected jewelry, veil and other bridal accessories being destroyed pre, during, and post the big day. Rest assured that there are several ways to not only prevent a disaster but rather serve as quick fixes if there is a disaster! Below are some key items you want present on your special day if catastrophe strikes!
Make simple touch ups to spots that may get on your gown with white chalk. Simply go over the spotted area and then lightly blend for perfection.
Ever wonder how gals keep that veil tightly locked? By lightly spraying over the veil with hairspray when it’s in place, you will prevent it from being too loose or flying away in case in of wind!
If small wrinkles develop, have a spray bottle and hairdryer handy. Spray the area and use a hairdryer to dry the area wrinkle free.
Just in case your bridal gown isn’t fitting as perfectly as planned, use double-sided wardrobe tape to tape up those loose ends or keep your straps from slipping. After all, you want the big revealing moment to be on your honeymoon!
You never know when a needle, thread and scissors may come handy. Perhaps the bustle broke, straps won’t stay up, or your lace came un-tacked … simply make some stitches!
The ultimate quick fix? Safety pins! No matter what garment mishap, just pin away!
Dually noted tips? Remember when transporting your bridal gown to keep it in the garment bag. Once you’re at the desired location, take the garment out of the bag and let it hang where it’s free of anything and everything that may stain the dress. It’s also important that the gown is the last item you put on before heading down the aisle. Oh, and if you encounter a little rain on the big day… no worries! Have your bridal party stand in two lines with large umbrellas so you can successfully dash down the walkway with ease!
Also, if you’re not sure where to store all these miscellaneous items, just ask your gals in the bridal party to each be responsible for managing an item. Trust me, they’ll figure out where to store them in the meantime!
