How to Care for Your Wedding Dress after the Big Day

 

When it comes to choosing her wedding dress, every bride will spend hours looking at different designs and visiting numerous bridal shops until she finds the perfect gown. After all, this is a dress that she will wear on the biggest day of her life and she will want to make sure it is perfect. So it would make sense that she would want to look after it when the wedding is over so that she can look back on it in years to come. The following are a few tips on how to care for your wedding dress after the big day:

  • The first thing that you will need to do after the wedding is to have the dress dry cleaned professionally. You may be heading off on your honeymoon straight after the wedding and if this is the case then ask your maid of honor or your mum to take care of this for you.
  • The dress will have to be packed away once it has been cleaned. It is not wise to leave it hanging for a long time as it is probably very heavy and it could cause it to stretch. Make sure you get an acid free box that has been made for storing garments. Do not seal the box.
  • Make sure to take the dress out of the box once per year to let it air and then pack it away again.
  • The best place to store this box is under your bed or on top of a cupboard as the attic may be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
