Bridal Checklist

Weddings are all about the bride, so the more planning you do, the less stress on that magical day. Here are some suggestions:


Two months out

  • Check with your bridesmaids and see if their dresses need alterations—if so bring them with you!
  • If you’ve purchased a getting ready or rehearsal dinner outfit and aren’t sure about the fit bring those in as well

One month out

  • This is a good time to do any final or last minute fittings for the bride and bridal party
  • Build an emergency kit for the day of—we suggest safety pins, garment tape, hair spray, stain removal wipes

2 weeks out

  • Create a wedding day packing list for bride and bridal party
  • Build your wedding tote (a bin to keep all your day of things in)

Day of the wedding

  • Double check your wedding tote has everything you need

  • Enjoy your big day!

Oceanside did a fantastic job with my alterations! They were very helpful and knowledgeable. I will definitely be bringing it back to them for cleaning after the wedding.

Cleaning & Preservation

When it comes to preserving your gown, we employ a three-step process that’s second to none.

  • STEP 1 We inspect your gown for damage and stains. Our sophisticated preservation process even detects hidden stains so we can remove them before they become permanent.
  • STEP 2 We meticulously hand clean every gown to protect delicate beading, lace, and embroidery. We ensure all stains—both visible and hidden—are removed.
  • STEP 3 We carefully pack and preserve your clean gown using a museum-quality process and acid-free materials. This process protects your bridal gown from the air and light that cause unprotected gowns to yellow over time.


“Oceanside was Love Bridal’s number one recommendation!”



“Oceanside was recommended by both my wedding planner and seamstress. I was very nervous about giving up my dress so it could be steamed and delivered, but Clare was so easy to work with, accommodating and trustworthy.”



“I always knew I wanted to preserve the dresses since they were my mom’s. I can’t wait to have a little girl and display the shadow box in her room.”

Ready. Set. Breathe.
