ABOUT WEDDING DRESS PRESERVATION
Are you looking for a way to make your beautiful wedding dress last for years to come. No doubt you want to keep it looking just as lovely as the day you brought it home from the boutique. Of course, even wearing it for one day will cause at least a little wear and tear. Here is the ultimate guide to preserving your beautiful wedding gown.
First, Get it Cleaned
No matter how hard we try, the dress never looks as perfect as when it first came off the rack in the boutique changing room. Most people end up with at least a few stains from wine, cake frosting, mud or dust. Even baby drool will leave behind a stain, and one that is difficult to get out at that!
Therefore, there really isn’t any point to spending your entire wedding day worried about getting your dress dirty. We’re all human, and nobody can possibly keep a white dress from getting stained at some point. Instead, just relax and enjoy your special day. The memories will last longer than those stains!
Afterward, you can consider getting your dress professionally cleaned. Dry cleaning uses a special process that will remove tough stains without harming the delicate fabric. Different fabrics require different types of cleaning techniques, so make sure to work with your dry cleaner to find a process that will clean your dress without ruining it.
Next, Find a Preservationist
A preservationist is a professional specializing in keeping your dress clean and in proper storage to keep it looking as beautiful as possible, for as long as possible. A preservationist will help you find the best way to store your gown, give you a special box of acid-free materials, and help you pack your dress so that you stand the least change of damaging it.
Why Should You Consider Having Your Gown Preserved?
Getting your gown professionally preserved will help you keep it looking beautiful for years to come. In some families, a wedding dress can become a family heirloom, and may even be in good enough condition for your daughter or granddaughter to wear it someday for her wedding.
Additionally, trying to clean and store your dress yourself can cause damage to the delicate fabric or discoloration through improper storage techniques. Therefore, it will definitely pay off to invest in preservation services so you can keep an invaluable memento of your special day
