Your wedding; that wonderful sweeping romantic event that starts your life down the path of discovery of one’s eternal love with your new husband.

And let’s face it; you, because the bride, were the spectacular centre of attention and beauty at that event. Indeed, weddings are created to accentuate the bride and yours did exactly that, didn’t it?

Why Clean And Preserve Your BRIDAL DRESS?

Of course, a huge section of accentuating your beauty was your wedding dress. This is now just about the most important gowns in your life; loaded with memories, memories of the search for it, the trying of many until you found the perfect one you fell deeply in love with, the memories of the delightful day of the marriage and the fun had by all at the reception after it.

And now you wish to preserve those memories forever.

Why do it now?

So now that happy day has ended and relegated to your storehouse of wonderful memories.

Following the excitement and stress of the marriage and all things before it, most brides just want to kick back and relax a bit. They’re in honeymoon mode!

Although the best intentions are to deal with the cleaning of them very soon, over half of all wedding dresses suffer the same fate at the moment. They’re simply folded and stuffed back into the box from whence they came. Only this time, it isn’t the brilliantly clean and crisp garment it had been when it came out. Stains both visible and invisible remain lurking on the fabric to do their damaging work. About 4 to 5 months later, the bride or mother of the bride finally may decide to do something about it.

However, damage can already be present from these stains after only a few months. Yellowing and browning may appear within just a couple months. Stains may also migrate to other places on the garment. After the wedding, immediate focus on the garment is of utmost importance.

With all the details finding your way through the wedding and reception, it will be a shame to cut this level of attention to details short in relation to your beautiful wedding dress.

You wouldn’t want to inspect your dress months or years later on only to find it is too late to accomplish anything about its deterioration.

The Grit And Stains Assaulting Your Dress

With all the current beauty and grace at your wedding, there is grit and dirt there too as well, wasn’t there? How could there not be? It really is almost a certainty your matrimonial dress was assaulted and violated by some foreign grime.

In and from the car (or limousine), the ground length hemline of one’s gown may be caught in the door, picking right up grease! If it is left sticking out of the door during the trip, then heaven knows everything you picked up when it comes to road dirt. Simply walking across lawns and parking lots, dirt and grass stains may be ground into your hemline as well. And this can occur just during the wedding photographs!

Then, of course, there is the reception.

Eating, drinking, dancing, talking and bumping into people, sober and otherwise. Of course, here is the occasion of yours and your husband’s nuptials where you are the centre of the celebration and everyone wants to have a bit of your attention! Your friends and loved ones close to you wanting to touch, grab, pull and tug you and your gown. And who knows what your beautiful bridal attire picked up in the washroom? It really is inevitable; some undesirable stain will likely be slopped, ground or otherwise transferred on your bridal gown.

You will have the visible grime needless to say; grease, road filth, grass stains, dinner and dessert blotches, colourful drink splashes, and perhaps even some mysterious makeup intrusion.

Then there is the invisible and insidious soiling; champagne, sugars and colourless alcohol. Even your own body can betray you with perspiration which can introduce acids, body oils, salts, ammonia, enzymes and bacteria to the fabric of your gorgeous gown. These stains are all unseen until they yellow after a time.

What’s more is many of these stains can be used in other parts of your garment if left alone. It is absolutely best to address the cleaning and preservation of your wedding dress immediately.

Other Dress Damage

Of course physical damage can occur as well such as stepping on the garment hemline, by both you among others. Dancing, bending and tugging will stretch and stress the seams in your waist, bustle, sleeves and neckline. Your delicate endowments such as for example lace, embroidery and beading on your matrimonial dress, sequins, belts, sashes and jackets can easily be damaged by the events of the day.
