Vera Wang’s wedding secrets, 1.

It’s her day.”  We’re here to help make your wedding perfect, let us help.

Packing a suit.

Here’s the right way to fold a suit to fit into a carry-on. Lay the jacket flat and button it up, flip over and fold one shoulder over halfway to the middle. Lay the sleeve directly over the fold, repeat with other half. Fold the pants in half lengthwise, then once again. Place the pants on top of the folded jacket shoulders, then fold the jacket in half so the pants are nested inside. When you arrive, unpack and hang.

Prepare for clean.

A few minutes preparing your laundry before throwing it into the machine will save grief and add life to your clothing. Unroll shirt sleeves and pant cuffs. Zip up zippers to avoid snagging the metal teeth on knits and woven garments. Unbutton button-down collars and button-front shirts to avoid stressing buttons and buttonholes. Tie drawstrings together so they don’t snake into the sweatpants or hoodie. Turn dark colored garments inside out to minimize fading.  Make the most of your home laundry using our professional prep tips.
