Wedding Gown Tips & Advice

Wedding Gown Cleaning & Preservation Sample. Photo Credit istockphoto.Getting married? Already married? Here are a few important tips to keep your wedding gown in tip-top shape.

Always hang your wedding gown by loops inside the gown that are connected to sturdy side seams, never by fragile shoulder seams that can stretch or sag.

Never store your wedding gown in plastic bags or vacuum-sealed, plastic wrapped containers because plastic emits fumes that can yellow your bridal gown and trap moisture that mildews your wedding gown.

Always ask what precautions the specialist takes to protect delicate trims and decorations on your wedding gown and how the cleaners guards against latent stains on your wedding gown.

Always choose a specialist who will personally process your gown at their own facility, not one who will send your bridal gown out to another company.

Always ask to inspect your wedding gown personally before it is put into the storage container, which should be completely acid-free, museum-quality, archival wedding chest using acid-free (not pH neutral) tissue paper on the inside.

Never store your wedding dress in the attic or basement where there are extreme changes in temperature and humidity.
