Save Your Wedding Dress with Our Dry Cleaning
A wedding gown is so much more than a dress. Your wedding gown is a symbol of your marriage and a memento that is practically priceless. Whether you want to preserve your dress as a way to preserve memories, or you want to save your wedding dress for your child to wear on their special day one day, the following blog post will teach you how to care for your wedding dress.
Wedding dresses are designed with fine details, so it is important to care for these gowns. The first step in caring for your wedding dress is being proactive when you’re wearing it. If you’re painting your nails for your wedding, paint your nails and let them dry before you put the dress on to avoid paint stains. You should also try to do your makeup before putting on the dress. If you cannot do this, wear a smock that covers the entire dress to be sure no makeup gets on the gown. You should also be careful when eating or drinking. Consider changing into a different dress for your wedding reception, or wear a napkin or cover-up during dinner.
Transporting a dress can result in wrinkles or pulled threads. Instead of folding your dress when moving it from location to location, try to hang the dress if possible. If you have a garment bag that fits your dress, hang the gown in this bag during all travels. Once you get the dress to your destination, lay it on a sheet or towel to protect it from creasing, as well as dust and dirt.
Don’t store your wedding dress when it is dirty and don’t wash your wedding dress on your own. Dirt can permanently stain your gown beyond repair if stored for many years. However, washing the dress on your own can result in damages. Be sure your wedding dress is properly cared for by taking it to a professional.
