The styles for this label can be mixed and matched, and include up to two lines of text (three lines are allowed if doing two full names as seen above, or one long full name). If you would like to add a third line, or an additional element (a large initial, or small design), please email me for a custom listing.

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. If you have any questions as to where or how to sew it in, please feel free to contact us. 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.

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 middle initial larger. For monogram guidelines, see here:

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 "&"). Long names may be split into two lines if necessary.

Please note on borders: Some borders, like 10, create a larger label, and borders like 5 create 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)-please see the link below on what makes a label larger. Also consider not using a font that is italicized, as those fonts can make names/words longer.

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.
