How to Wear Your High School Cap and Gown
Can I wear stoles and other accessories at the ceremony?
Allowed accessory items are predetermined by your institution. Products showing a school logo or seal must be approved by the school.
Graduation Announcements, Invitations, and Parties
Graduation announcements, while not originally viewed as a request for gifts, unfortunately have become associated in recent years with forced gift-giving. Graduation announcements should not be distributed to people other than close friends and family members, unless the notation “No gifts please” has been added.
The same thing goes for graduation invitations.This is particularly true because many degree-granting institutions impose limits on the number of spectators who actually may attend, and issue tickets to the graduate to be given to those select members of the family or friends who actually are expected to show up at the ceremonies.
Better to invite only immediate family and closest friends (such as godparents) to the ceremony. Whether it is a traditional graduation party such as an open house or a more “organized party” such as a roast for the graduate or a buffet dinner, plan a party theme that reflects what your graduate’s plans for the future are.
How do I care for my regalia?
Souvenir Gown– Remove the gown from its packaging. Place on a hanger to allow the folds to fall out. Hanging in a high humidity area, like your bathroom, will accelerate this process. If an iron is needed turn the garment inside out and use a warm (not hot) iron. Steaming is also an option. Never put the iron directly on velvet.

Fine Quality – Remove your gown from its packaging and hang. Allow the gown to hang several days for fold wrinkles to fall out before placing in the garment bag that we included in your shipment. After each wearing allow the gown to hang for several days before storing back in the garment bag. We recommend that you have your gown dry cleaned at a reputable and professional dry cleaners. Typically they do not need to be dry-cleaned after each use. We stand behind our products with the utmost confidence. However, due to the nature of these products, and the instability of many dyes, it is not possible for us to guarantee them against fading or transference.
