  1. Call Housekeeping and ask for a white sheet to place under your dress on the floor. This will prevent the bottom of it from getting dirty.
  2. Let your dress out of the garment bag and give it some air as this is a very easy way to prevent wrinkling.
  3. Last if your dress is a bit wrinkled, give Housekeeping a call and ask for some assistance steaming your dress. Keep in mind that certain fabrics, like satin, do not take to steaming.

I love when couples have a signature cocktail at their wedding because it brings a little piece of their personality to the bar. And what I ADORE even more is when signature cocktails have a beautiful garnish that enhances it. You can choose garnishes that go with your wedding color or are just pretty & delicious additions to the beverage, the choice is yours. Remember, the options are endless so feel free to chat with your catering manager to find something you’ll love!
