Five Inventions to Make Your Wedding Interesting

April 10th, 2013 3:55 am

Weddings can be super stressful. Thankfully there are a ton of talented inventors out there who love creating items to make your big day run more smoothly. Check out some of our favorite wedding inventions and products below:

*The Ring Thing

The wedding ring is a status symbol that says a lot about your personality. What if you could use it to show your love for technology instead of just gemstones and metal finishes? Now you can.

Our gadgets are getting smaller and smaller, so it makes sense that the next big thing would be the smart ring! These tech-y trinkets actually remind the wearer that it’s almost anniversary time by heating up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit (just shy of skin scalding) for 10 straight seconds every hour during the 24 hours leading up to the big day. The perfect reminder for a love that is almost too hot to handle, this ring will ensure you never forget the anniversary again!

*Step Up Your Style

Two of the most important pieces of the wedding day are the dress and the accessories. Most brides love making a statement with the wedding dress – now they can take a stand on environmental issues with an eco-friendly dress. The inventors of this dress wanted to challenge the notion that a beautiful wedding dress should be used once and then discarded or stored in the back of a closet. They created a convertible, truly environmentally friendly dress that can transition into five fashion-forward looks before being dissolved in water, thereby leaving no environmental footprint.

*The No-Flail Veil

More practical than planet friendly, these tiny gems are actually tiny weighted magnets decorated with sparkling gemstones and are designed to help keep the veil from flying around in the wind during pictures. Bonus points: they double as bling for the big day!

*Heels are Good for the Sole

Scuffed heels are the bane of every bride’s existence, not to mention the stress of a striking stiletto plunging into the mud as you’re walking! The Solemates have come up with a way to eliminate both problems with these neat plastic heel covers. They help the wearer stay more stable on their feet by distributing the weight more evenly and giving the heel a larger purchase on the ground. The result? Pretty peds that are less likely to wobble, stumble, or sink into the lawn.

*Better Bathroom Options

When you’re all wrapped up in the most beautiful and complicated dress of your life, bathroom options are limited and slightly terrifying. Either you have to bring an escort with you to wrangle the dress and protect both you and it from bathroom grime, or you could always wear the unfortunately named bridal diaper. Neither prospect is ideal, but thankfully there is a better way!

For the fiercely independent bride, there is the Go Girl. It’s an invention that allows women to answer the call of nature while standing, no muss, probably a lot of fuss.

How to keep your Costume right after the Ceremony

Whether you danced the night away, took pictures in the rain or literally rode off into the sunset, your wedding gown went the distance with you on your special day – and it probably has the telltale stains and smudges to prove it. Now is the time to give your dress a little tender loving care by preserving it properly. Trust your gown to a wedding dress specialist who understands the unique complexities of cleaning a delicate item that holds such significant meaning and memories.

Lowest Rates on Dry Cleaning

The easiest and most fool-proof way to make sure your wedding dress is preserved professionally is to leave the work to professionals. A reputable wedding specialist like David’s Bridal can provide you with a simple kit to prepare the dress. Simply follow the instructions included in your wedding dress preservation kit, and the experts will mastermind the cleaning, preservation and storage of your gown.

In about three weeks, your gown will be returned to you, good and clean as new and preserved in a handsome display case for convenient viewing, so you can arouse treasured memories anytime, without the hassles of unpacking and repacking your entire closet, attic or basement. Since the entire package is prepaid-dry cleaning, storage and shipping included-you’ll avoid all shipping charges.

You can even bundle the gown with accessories-veil, headpiece, garter, train, etc.-and have those cleaned, preserved and displayed as well, all in one easy step. A full service kit such as this one can help you make the vital, yet often overlooked process of maintaining your gown as easy as lounging in your slip. Whether you pass your gown on to your daughter or granddaughter, or just want to keep your special gown in pristine condition indefinitely, this package will offer the professional results you can appreciate.

Protecting Your Gown

Silk, satin, lace, tulle-wedding gowns are traditionally tailored from the most delicate, exquisite textiles available to achieve a quality of floating ethereality. Unfortunately, this fragility can quickly go from romantic to aggravating once the mothballs start to pile up. In order to make sure that your gown is stored safely, conveniently, and in a way that agrees with the garment’s unique construction. This is why stacking and folding can degrade a gown much faster than hanging it up.

With a spacious garment bag designed for large garments, you can rest assured that your gown won’t be crushed, bent, or needlessly eroded in any way. Plus, this white side-zip storage bag has expandable side-gussets built to expand conveniently from 4 inches to 7.75 inches along the entire length. At a generous 32 inches wide at its bottom and 68 inches long, this uniquely dimensioned garment bag is large enough to accommodate full ball gowns and even the longest Cathedral trains. This bag slips easily into any closet and features a reinforced space around the neck of the hanger to prevent tearing. Before storing your wedding dress in a garment bag for long periods, be sure to have it expertly cleaned first, as even minor stains can yellow over time.

Preserving Your Memories for A Lifetime

There’s really no excuse to allow your bridal gown to decline and fade inside a musty old chest. When it comes time to pass your matrimonial trappings on to future generations, you’ll be glad that you chose to remain attentive to their maintenance and upkeep. With just a minimum expenditure of time, energy and cost, you can freshen up your gown every few years with a dry cleaning service.

And remember the other precious elements from your special day as well. Accessories in particular can be vulnerable to oxidization, moths, natural weakening of fibers, and, the most common threat to maintaining a pristine trousseau, simple neglect. Take measures to never find yourself digging through chests and wardrobes for that veil you wore to express a profound declaration of love and devotion to your partner the day you began your life as a couple.

Your gown and bridal accessories are simply too important to store with the old jeans, stirrup leggings and shoulder pads in your attic. Treat your wedding garments like royalty; the royal family of your wardrobe. They’ll respond by remaining bright and magnificent, deeply evocative of the most exciting day of you and your partner’s life. A treasure truly worth taking care of. Give your children and grandchildren the priceless gift of a well-maintained heirloom and ensure a loving legacy sure to inspire generations of happy wedding days.
