Why You Should Keep Your Wedding Dress Clean – And How You Should Do It!
Your beautiful wedding day has come and gone, but your dress will remain as a constant reminder of your special day. Likely it will be one of the most expensive items of clothing you will ever purchase.
Whatever your future intentions are for your dress, whether it becomes a cherished keepsake or treasured heirloom to be passed on, you will need to know how to take care of it and protect it from the ravages of time.
Such a large emotional and financial investment deserves more than to be abandoned in some musty old wardrobe in your spare bedroom.
Consider the hours spent choosing your dress for the big day.
Consultations with friends, sage advice from relatives. Internet searches and the hours poring over bridal magazines. All the trips into town to compare dresses in the different shops.
Your choice was not made lightly. Likewise, the post-wedding aftercare of your dress warrants a little reflection too.
Perhaps you want to preserve and protect your dress for your daughter one day. Or a beloved niece. Maybe you will cherish your dress as you grow old with your husband. A tactile reminder of those vows you made to each other on your special day.
Whichever is the case you need to understand a little about how to best preserve your wedding gown.
Whether you decide to delegate the task to trained professionals with the expertise to ensure a job well done, or to take on the process yourself with a commercially available wedding dress preservation kit, correct cleaning and application of preservation techniques will protect the colour and shape of the fabric well into the future.
