Prom Wedding Injured

Can you find her CastCoverz!? Discreet cover matched bride’s dress!

Injuries and surgeries always come at the worst time.  But, it is especially difficult and disappointing right before a very special event.

What’s worse is your cast, boot, crutches, sling, or any orthopedic device can be a major distraction for your special day.

Don’t despair!  We have 6 ways to conceal or glam it up for the bride, prom-goer or groom!

Happy Groom in Midnight Black Crutches from CastCoverz!

 

1. Add color! Casts and crutches can be wrapped or taped in a variety of colors or patterns, even glow-in-the-dark. The best selection is DuckBrand®.  You can find rolls of it at your local hardware or office supply store.  We’ve even spotted them at Target®!

Here’s a link for a printable $5.00 off DuckBrand coupon. You can order some spectacular crutches in designer colors, too like our groom did with Midnight Black crutches.

2. Bedazzle it! Glam and glitz your cast, boot, crutches, even your sling!  But, beware jewels and crystals often have edges which can snag your dress or tux.  Might be better to cover it up.  Check out our Pinterest page for outstanding customer design ideas here.

3. Casttoo This decal like product looks like a tattoo for your cast. The rough surface of a cast can be tricky to draw on, especially intricate designs, so this is a clever alternative.  Be very careful care, though. A hot hairdryer is used in its application.  You don’t need a burn to go with that cast.

4.Use it as a memory-book!  Grab a rainbow of Sharpie®’s, commemorate the event or date, then let your friends or family sign it.  You will have a keepsake to remember (and eventually treasure).

5. Do you have a special logo for your event? Display it on your sling, (like our customer did with her company logo left), boot, leg or arm cast.

Whether you want a custom creation with matching lace, rhinestones, or sequins, or you want to keep it simple with one of our stock covers in lace, black, nude, ivory, or white.

Don’t get caught up in the injury blues, and focus on the most important factor: making memories at your special event. “Embrace” this special day and, above all, be safe and have fun!

P.S. We create custom covers for members of the entire wedding party, especially mother(s) of the groom or bride.  For some reason, they are particularly clumsy the week before their child’s wedding.  🙂  For more custom pictures, please check out our Custom Covers page.
