Accept only acid free archival materials to wrap your gown. Cardboard acid free boxes and tissue are available at many bridal shops for boxing up your gown after it has been cleaned. The gown will be carefully folded and packed into a box of the appropriate size to keep it from shifting without being squished. This is a decent method, especially when compared to the horrid vacuum-seal box, but it is still not the best option for very long term storage of your wedding gown. Over the years, the acid free materials will begin to deteriorate and the cardboard can collect moisture, both of which can cause damage to your wedding dress down the road. If you opt for this method, it is advisable to replace the box and tissue every five years or so (sooner, if there is cause for concern).

Recently I had the pleasure of viewing the photography of a traditional (Hindu) Indian wedding taken by a member of a forum to which I belonged. I cannot begin to express how elaborately beautiful that ceremony was, and how skilled the photographer. I have never seen anything like it, and if I wasn’t already fascinated by Indian culture, that would have done it!
The dresses came from design companies where a designer is paid to come up with each season’s new look. These few looks must be taken to shows and promoted to the bridal stores in the hope that our bridal store owner will buy – trust me, this costs big bucks!

Choose a professional seamstress. Make sure she has experience in sewing wedding dresses and can provide references to prove so.

The happiness of the groom’s side is more than the bride’s, showing the grief along with the celebrations, of losing a member. Although nowadays a lot of trends have changed and even the bride side takes equal part in the celebrations of the wedding. If she has any questions, it is best for her to address them than have that added stress later as she comes closer to her date. Communication is always KEY. Your most important supplies are not expensive. Have multiple packages of sewing machine needles of the correct size and type for each of the fabrics included in your gown. Hand sewing needles and thread will be needed for beadwork, basting, and making thread loops. Finally, don’t start until you have several boxes of brand new pins. Bridal fabrics dull pins quickly and you will need sharp, strong pins to hold the many layers in a typical wedding gown. Don’t be skimpy! You will use hundreds of pins in the course of this project. Dull pins will slow you down and might snag your expensive fabric. I recommend the extra-long quilting pins with the yellow plastic heads for most satins and multiple layers of fabric. Smaller silk pins can be used for more delicate fabrics. I love your hub! These are the exact style of dress I want to wear for my wedding.
