I have buttons down my dress and I love this detai! My question is they are regular loop buttons and how do you get out of them with out damaging the dress for future wearers? My Fiance wants to be the one to help get me out after the wedding. Any advice?

As long as he isn’t literally ripping the dress off you, I’m sure it will be fine. Just make sure he takes his time unbuttoning it.

If he does get a little over zealous in removing the dress I doubt it’d be difficult to get a tailor to sew the button back on

I’ve heard of people using knitting hooks to get the dress on and off.

Pack a crochet hook. I was moh for my friend and we had to use one to do it up, and then I had to deliver it to her hotel at 1am.

@phillybride61513: That’s an amazing idea!

Is there a zipper behind the buttons? Maybe you could have a bridesmaid/mom whatever unhook the buttons before you leave and then your husband can just unzip you.

Even if you damage one or two, it is a very simple repair.

My bridesmaids did me up with crochet hooks…we’d meant to put one in the overnight bag, but I forgot, and my husband was able to unbutton everything fairly quickly with no dress damage. I suggest you add a crochet hook to your packing list, just in case he struggles with it a bit!

I undid the zipper, bent down, and Darling Husband pulled it off for me. There was a lot of dress but once he got holdof it, it just slipped off
