Please enter monograms exactly as they will be stitched, or give specific instructions on how you want them done. If no further instructions are specified, they will be done in the order shown, with the center initial larger. For monogram guidelines, see here:
This label option includes two lines of text, typically name(s)/monogram, and wedding date. If you would like an additional line or element (for example, large initial or small graphic), please see other listings or email directly for options.
Dress labels range in size from 2-4” tall X 3-5 wide”, but can be a bit larger due to the fonts and wording chosen.
♦●▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ●♦ HELPFUL INFORMATION ♦●▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬●♦
Dress labels are sent to you directly, and can be sewn in by the person doing alterations. It only takes a bit of hand sewing, so the bride or a family member can do it as well. Labels are stitched on high quality satin, and are fully finished front and back.
Please note: If using full first and last names: go ahead and enter the names in one line on your order. However, they will most likely be done on two lines due to space limitations, with no symbols between (such as "&").
Please note on borders: Border options 10 thru 15 create a larger label all around, and border 5 creates a longer label. If you like those borders, but want a smaller size, consider using a monogram, and a short version of date (an abbreviation of month names, or a numerical date). Also consider not using a font that is italicized, as those fonts can make names/words longer. If you would like a simple rectangle, that is an option as well-just put simple monogram as your border choice.
♦●▬▬▬▬▬ ●♦ HISTORY OF THE WEDDING DRESS LABEL ♦●▬▬▬▬▬●♦
In the 20’s and 30’s, couture gown designers starting designing personalized labels for their clients, and attaching them inside the gowns. Now brides can use this special touch to make wedding gowns truly their own. When the tradition of labels for wedding gowns started, it was seen as the last time a bride would use her maiden name. So the bride’s full maiden name and wedding date was sewn into the gown. More recently, brides began choosing to put their name and the groom’s name on the label with the wedding date. Today, anything goes—from nicknames, monograms, or symbols—whatever the bride feels has the most meaning for her.
These labels are sewn into your wedding gowns lining at the hem, or inside the top of the gown, where a typical clothing label would go. They can be sewn in any color, but are most commonly done in blue for the traditional “Something Blue.” They can even be sewn as a pocket to hold something special, like a good luck charm, or other precious item that you want to have with you on your wedding day. After the wedding, the label becomes a memento for future generations to have the name and date from the day the dress was worn. This is a special touch for a dress that will be handed down. And if you decide not to keep the dress, the label can be removed, and kept as a memento of the gown-perhaps to be placed in your wedding scrapbook, next to a picture of the dress.
Whatever you choose to have stitched on the label, it is a wonderful way to make “The Dress” truly your own.
