Bride on the go - tips for travelling with a wedding dress

Tips for Traveling with a Wedding Dress (or any special dress for that matter)

Destination weddings have been the biggest growing trend this year and we love it! What could be better than enjoying the biggest day of your life in front of the Eiffel Tower or on the sandy beaches of some exclusive tropical island! But there is one more thing to handle…how in the world do you get your dress there?? Here are some great tips for helping your dress survive the travel.

*  Ship it! Avoid the troubles of airlines altogether and use UPS, Fed Ex or USPS to ship your dress there for you. This has become such a popular method for brides that most front desks at hotels will sign for your dress when it arrives if you are unable to do so. 

*  Travel Light! Skip the poofy ball gown and go for something simple, light and elegant. This way your dress can easily be packed up and you will be able to move along the sandy beaches much easier. Siri offers a selection of amazingly light-weight, elegant gowns. This Siri Castella gown features a gorgeous rouched sweetheart bodice and is made of pure silk shantung, making it a lightweight and natural breathable fabric!

*  Keep it with you! Unless you really have to, do not check your dress in with your regular luggage. This way if the airline loses your luggage at least you have the outfit that is most important! Larger planes which are often used for longer destination flights will usually have limited closet space available in the first class section.

*  If you have no choice but to check your dress with your regular luggage make sure your dress is packed in a garment bag or folded with an ample amount of tissue paper. This website shows a an easy way of folding your dress up without causing a lot of creasing -

*  Buy your dress a seat! Celebrities do it all the time, so why can’t you! You did invest a good amount of change in this item and it is sort of imperative it arrives in one piece, so guard it with you life in the seat next to yours.

*  If you are going to travel with your wedding dress, please contact your airline prior to the day of your flight to make the proper accommodations. Most airlines will be happy to help if they are given notice in advance.

*  Let your dress breathe! Keeping your dress in the car in long periods of sunshine can discolor or wrinkle your dress. Keep it in a breathable garment bag, and maybe turn on the air for those really hot days.

*  Once you arrive at your destination make sure to hang up your gown. That will help release some of the wrinkles from traveling.

*  And one of the best ways to avoid stress and a wrinkled dress is to make an appointment ahead of time to have the gown pressed upon arrival. That way it will be picture perfect for the big day and you'll have no worries!

Brewing Up Some Bliss

Our beloved Milwaukee Brewers are on the road for the next week or so, and they're playing the Padres tonight. We thought we'd draw some inspiration from our favorite baseball players and pull together some ideas for brides whose two favorite diamonds are the one on her finger and the one at Miller Park. We think this Alfred Sung D156 dress is perfect for the Brew Crew Bridesmaid. Get the groomsmen to wear gold cleats and add a few fun touches for your family and fans... I mean friends, and you'll have the crowd cheering all night.

Indie Wed is May 10th!

We can hardly contain our excitement for Milwaukee's first Indie Wed experience on May 10th. This city has some amazing independent shops that, in combination, can create the perfect wedding (Indie or not) for any bride. Seeing them all in the same place is a tremendous opportunity - and a great time-saver!

We like to take care of our own, promoting other local, small businesses whenever we can. It's not just because they offer amazing customer service, great selection and unique products - though it is completely true, of course. We believe in supporting the local economy, especially in the wedding business, and we hope you'll join us and a selection of other independent Milwaukee businesses at Indie Wed.

Get your tickets ahead of time to save a few dollars. We hope to see you there!

To support indie businesses and find the perfect dress for your Special Day, schedule an appointment with us. You can be one of our first customers in our NEW Exclusive Bridal Suite.
