Today we are going to talk about what will happen to your wedding dress on the wedding day.
It can be really difficult for a bride to put on their dream wedding dress and know that once they step outside, the dress is going to drag on the ground and it’s going to get dirty.
It’s going to pick up leaves and twigs, act like a bug catcher and there’s a big chance it will snag on something and tear.
It’s the reality of wearing a wedding dress on a wedding day. You really need to ‘let go of it’ once you put it on.
Understand that it’s going to get a little grubby and although it might not make you happy, it’s part of a wedding day. If it gets a little grubby, so what? No one will notice anyway.
You won’t be wearing it again and it will come out with dry cleaning.
You must always be careful getting in and out of cars. Some wedding hire cars will have a cover to put over the wheel for protection. If you rub your white dress against the black tyre, you are going to get a black mark that won’t come off and don’t even try as you’ll make it worse.
There’s more of a risk of tyre marks if you’re just using private cars, as they won’t have a wheel cover.
You should avoid red wine and any food or drink with strong colour if you are wearing a white or pale coloured dress.
After the wedding day, you need to get your dress dry cleaned by professionals who understand how to clean a wedding dress correctly so it can be packed away and stored in your cupboard for safe keeping.
Do this within a few weeks of the wedding in case you have a stain that gets worse with time.
If you are going to sell your dress, you will need it dry cleaned so the process is unavoidable.
Get at least three quotes – as I’ve seen quotes from $50 to a $1000, so work out what your budget is and shop around.
