When You Do Not Find Your Dress at a Sacramento Bridal Shop

You are engaged and the hunt begins for the perfect dress. You can go through each and every Sacramento Bridal Shop when in fact the best dress might very well be in your mother’s closet. Not to say that you can wear it as is; I am fairly certain there will need to be alterations or even a full overhaul of the dress itself. That depends on exactly what is that you are looking for in a dress in the first place. Every bride to be has a different idea of what she wants to walk down the aisle in.

There are a few points to keep in mind when attempting to implement your mother’s dress into your wedding. Here are just a few.

  • Choose your dry cleaner wisely. Just because a person has a dry cleaning business does not mean that they are familiar with vintage gowns and or material. Ask for references and it is not a bad idea to call a few bridal shops and ask them who they would recommend. They may have a dry cleaner that they have worked with directly.
  • Make it original. Things have changed a lot since your mother got married. This includes the style, so be sure to make the dress an original to you. Do not be afraid to make it your own.
  • Remember that you do not have to use the entire dress. Even the most experienced seamstress cannot perform miracles and if you are to the point where it is just not fitting your style.
  • Approach with caution when it comes to a vintage dress. Make certain that you are working with an experienced seamstress and run ideas past your mother. Be sure that you and your mother are both ready for the big reveal.
