There could be little worse than something devastating happening to your wedding dress on the day of your nuptials. So, it’s a good idea to prepare a wedding dress survival kit before your big day. It’ll put your mind at ease to know ahead of time that, should something go awry, you can easily fix it and feel confident in your perfect wedding dress.
Compile the essential sewing materials. This should include a needle and thread, small scissors, and hem tape. Outdoor wedding photos are
fabulous, but what if your dress gets caught on a stray branch? Don’t freak! This can easily be stitched back together, and since you’re prepared, you won’t have to frantically send a friend or family member to scrounge up materials to fix your dress. We love dresses that feature a long, elegant train, but they come with their own set of challenges that can be covered by your wedding dress survival kit. If your hem needs adjusting, it’s super easy to fix any problems with sewing tape. All you need to do is lay your dress out inside out, use chalk or pencil to mark where you need patch things up, place hem tape on the dress, and iron on low heat until the tape and dress stick together. That being said, make sure your bridal suite has an iron on hand!
Pack stain remover in your kit. You’ll have enough to worry about, and of course, you should take care to protect your amazing dress, but accidents happen, especially when applying make up. Shop around for a quality stain remover that won’t damage your gown. We suggest doing a trial run prior to your wedding day on another piece of fabric that is similar to the materials of your dress to ensure that your chosen stain remover won’t cause any harm.
You’re probably cringing at the idea of having your period on your wedding day, but you’ll want to be prepared for the worst. Keep feminine hygiene products on hand, and as soon as your period starts, you can take care of it and not have to worry about discomfort or staining your dress
You don’t want to be mincing around on one of the most special days of your life. By packing a survival kit for your dress, you can walk around smiling like crazy like this beautiful bride, confidently relishing in the excitement of the day while free from constant worry about ruining your dress.
