Learning to Preserve your Wedding Dress

After spending weeks or even months, and quite a lot of money, searching for that perfect wedding dress it would be ridiculous to assume that you will just throw it on the floor and forget about it after the honeymoon. After the wedding you surely have a number of things to do, but it is important to remember why you chose that wedding dress in the first place, and understand why it is so important to preserve it and cherish it forever.

There are a number of packaging and cleaning techniques that are used in gown preservation, and that you can use in order to ensure that your dress stays beautiful forever. There are a number of professional cleaners that can analyze your gown and all of the fabrics used, and even the stains on it, in order to let you know what needs to be done in order to restore its beauty. After the wedding dress is cleaned it is wrapped and placed in a box.

Remember that the longer you wait to get your gown cleaned, the less likely that it will be that the stains and dirt will be able to come out.

It may be a good idea to seek out a cleaner a few weeks before the wedding, in order to make sure that you get your dress preserved properly. Just remember that many dry cleaners will claim that they can clean gowns, but they do not always use the methods that work the best. Try to find a place that cleans at least 100 dresses a year in order to ensure that they can handle the task and make sure your dress is as clean and preserved as it can be.

Cleaning Techniques

Some cleaners use the wetcleaning method to clean a wedding dress, which involves washing it by hand with very gentle cleaners. While other cleaners will use a traditional method that is all about pre-treating stains and then putting them into a dry cleaning method. It is just important that they use gentle solvents so that a lovely sheen can be left on the wedding dress fabric.

We all know that you may be tapped out after your wedding and feel that you do not have the money left over to clean your wedding dress, but you will regret the decision later. You should always try to get the dress cleaned right away and preserve it in the best possible manner. It may even be a good idea to put aside a bit of money in order to get it cleaned before you even take off on your honeymoon, that way it can be a part of your wedding budget.

Get your dress cleaned and then pack it away in a safe place and you will be able to pass it down to your loved ones or daughter, or even just enjoy taking it out and trying it on every now and then. Your wedding dress is one of the biggest memories that you possess, so taking care of it is one of the best decisions that you can make.
