Brides are always asking us when they should have their wedding dresses cleaned. The answer? Immediately after your big day is best.
Whether you intend to sell or keep your wedding gown, it still requires immediate care after wear. That’s because stains can damage the delicate fibers of your dress over time. And invisible stains that you can’t see (think champagne or sweat) will appear and start to yellow.
The sooner as stain is treated, the better its chance of removal. Even major stains like a red wine spill or tire tracks on your train (yep, we’ve seen that) have a good chance of being removed, if treated quickly.
It’s important to know that not all wedding dress cleaners are the same. For your once-in-a-lifetime gown, find an expert who specializes in wedding dress care.
