Your wedding dress isthe dress that will always hold a special place in your heart. For centuries, women around the world have been practicing the lovely tradition of saving their dress and passing it down to their beloved ones.
On the other hand, some modern brides are veering away from tradition and are instead having their gown repurposed into something else – like a cocktail dress – they can wear and enjoy more frequently. Or they are choosing to donate it to someone less fortunate and in need of a wedding miracle.
Regardless of what you decide to do with your own wedding gown, the first step is to send it to professional wedding dress cleaners who can help you keep it intact and beautiful for a long time. If you are considering having your gown preserved, this post is for you.
A bridal dress is most often made from a delicate fabric and may have a lot of intricate lace, sequins, beading, netting, and other details. It goes without saying that preserving such a garment takes a LOT of attention and care. In this article, we are discussing some important things you must keep in mind while preserving your dress after your big day.
“Urggh! My optical white dress got a ketchup stain on it! Oh wait, I have got that bottle of bleach specifically for white garments. Problem solved!”
No. This is not the time or place to let your inner DIY ninja take over. Due to the dainty and flimsy nature of the material of the dress, you can never be sure of howbleach would react with the lace or the beads or the netting. The best thing to do is to send your gown to wedding dress cleaners who know what they are doing.
There’s this phenomenon known as latent stains – these annoying salt, sugar, and acidic stains don’t look like much in the moments they are developing, but soon they turn into ugly brownish patches. Sweat and body oils can also lead to stains that darken over time.
When it comes to removing stains from your wedding dress, or any delicate garment for that matter, keep these immortal words by a wisewiseman in mind, “I feel the need, the need for speed.” Before you take off for your honeymoon, send the dress to wedding dress cleaners!
Nothing against dry-cleaning professionals, they are amazing people who know how to take the stains out of a variety of things including regular clothes, coats, upholstery, and bedding. The issue is that they don’t necessarily specialize in working with intricate lace and delicate fabrics.
