Oh, we are nothing if not detail oriented here at Classic Party Rentals of Virginia. We love pressed linens, shiny silver – and fashion that flatters. We also attend a lot of special events, and what we’ve seen behooves us to share this most important piece of advice: make sure your attire fits!
There is perhaps no more photographed event than a wedding.
So, it boggles our minds that VIPs, attendants, and guests don’t pay more
attention to their wardrobe selections before showing up to celebrate. Do you
really want that disastrous frock caught on film for future generations to
enjoy? Why do you want to give the impression that you wore your younger, more
slender brother’s tux to save a few bucks?
The solution is simple. Find a tailor or seamstress in your
area, and spend the time and minimal expense to have your ensemble fitted
especially for you. A professional can
eliminate unflattering folds and bulges, and accentuate your positive features.
You’ll be able to truly put your best foot forward, and won’t have to live down
photos or fear that they will accidentally show up all over social media. Think
of all of the time you’ll save un-tagging yourself and praying that your coworkers
don’t catch sight of a blackmail worthy image!
If you are renting formalwear, please pick it up early enough to allow your supplier to replace or adjust pieces that are too big or too small. Closing time on Friday before the wedding is too late. Arrange for a mid-week pick up, and try it on before you leave the shop. Insist that the rest of your wedding party do so as well. The same advice applies to bridesmaid dresses, and even bridal gowns. Do not wait until the last minute. Allow enough time to fix what has gone horribly wrong so you can enjoy yourself on the wedding day.
Recap – what have you learned? We hope that you will take
the expert advice of event professionals who attend literally hundreds of
events each year. Take your wedding attire to a reputable seamstress or tailor
and ask them nicely to save your reputation and online credibility. Make sure
your wedding attire fits!
