Take care of your wedding gown!
Do you remember how beautiful your wedding gown was at your wedding?
Now, it’s time to think and plan for the future. What are you
planning to do with your lovely gown? Did you hang it in your closet after the wedding? And more importantly, is it still
hanging there, uncleaned and unprotected? Before you put your gown away, here are a few suggestions.
Have your gown completely cleaned before storage!
food, or beverage stains on the gown which are invisible now will become
visible during storage.
Don’t be unhappily surprised years from now by permanent yellow or brown stains. Clean it now and play
Remove any rubberized perspiration
shields and other padding which can deteriorate and cause stains.
Point out any spills on
the gown to your cleaner, especially champagne or any
colorless stain that could go unnoticed.
Do not store your gown in the basement- dampness can cause mildew.
attic is not recommended either; it's too hot in the summer. Protect your gown from light and avoid fading or discoloration.
Keep your gown in a cool, dry, dark place. Special protective boxes are available for the storage of wedding gowns. These
keep the gown clean, safe, and fresh for many years.
If you follow these guidelines, your gown will be just as lovely when your
daughter wishes to wear it at her own wedding. If properly handled, a gown can be an heirloom for future generation. We want
you to protect your investment. Have your gown professionally cleaned and stored.
