Ways to Preserve Your Wedding Dresses

Wedding!! The one day in a girl’s life that she will never forget. But it so happens that she forgets about her wedding dress after the wedding is over. A wedding dress is something which is used for a day and remains on a hanger the rest of its life. Many girls buy wedding dresses years before a wedding, and if it is not preserved properly there are chances of it getting spoiled before the wedding. Preserving a wedding dress is extremely important, regardless of whether it is before the wedding or after.

You should be aware that owning a bridal dress is a huge responsibility. You cannot just remove it off, fold it and put it in your closet. To take care and preserve your bridal gown, there are certain things that you need to follow before and after the wedding.

Before to the wedding:-

A few months before the wedding you go out to the market or shop online for cheap wedding dresses. After visiting a number of stores, and going through a number of wedding gowns you select one. After you make the selection and buy a dress, comes the handling part. Handling the dress very carefully is extremely important. When you purchase the dress, the retailer may provide you with a complimentary garment bag. If not, you can buy it from a supermarket. A garment bag helps in keeping the bridal dresses safe from any damage. It is therefore a must.

After you have a garment bag for your beautiful bridal dress, you can now hang the dress inside the bag. As your bridal wear will be long, it is very important to keep it somewhere high enough so that the skirt does not touch the floor. The place you hang it should be a closed space like a closet. Before you hang the bag make sure that the place isn’t damp or smelly.

Due to the excitement, you will end up trying on the dress a number of times before actually wearing it for the wedding. You should know that wedding dresses are extremely delicate items and the more you take them on and off, there is a greater risk that the beading might become loose or even fall of. So it is advisable to avoid taking the wedding dress out of the bag for a long time in order to avoid it from getting damaged or creased.

Post the wedding:-

After the wedding, you might want to clean the dress to keep it in a good condition. For this it is advised to approach a professional dry cleaner specializing in dry cleaning wedding dresses. If any damaged has occurred to the dress, you can immediately get it fixed. After you are done with the cleaning and fixing damages of the dress, hang it back in the garment bag and store it in the wardrobe.

Following these simple ideas will help you in keeping your wedding dress as beautiful as it was when you saw it in the showroom and fell in love with it.
