 Gown Preservation Begins When Bride Removes her gown

The vows have been exchanged, the cake has been cut and the guests danced until their feet were sore. There's nothing left to do but go on the honeymoon and start a lifetime of wedded bliss.

But wait! The wedding experience isn't over until you take care of your wedding gown preservation details.


When Should Gown Preservation Begin?

Too often, I work with brides who waited until months or years after the wedding is over to think about wedding gown cleaning and preservation. By this time, it may be too late to preserve a gown for decades of memories. Stains will have set and the gown could have suffered further damage depending on how you stored it. As you make your wedding plans, prepare for wedding gown preservation by following these simple guidelines.

Step 1 - Plan Where To Remove Your Gown

Start your wedding gown preservation process by planning for where and when you will remove your wedding ensemble. Have a large garment bag ready to go that can hold your gown, your shoes, your veil and other accessories like ribbons, gloves or jackets. 

Step 2 - Arrange For Someone To Take It To Your Wedding Gown Specialsit

Then, have someone assigned to collect your ensemble. This is the perfect task for your mother, maid of honor or other wedding attendant. This person will take your gown to the wedding gown preservation specialist, and in Birmingham, Alabama that would us!. Ideally, you will have met with the wedding gown specialist prior to your wedding to discuss how you want to save your gown. 

Step 3 - Share Special Instructions For Gown Care

Make the person in charge of your gown aware of any issues such as stains from the reception, rips, tears or spots so she can point these out to the cleaner. Talk with this person about how to transport your gown as well. The last thing you want is to have your mom throw your gown in the trunk where it can pick up more stains or odors or suffer damage from heat or the sun. 

The wedding ceremony may be over but the experience isn't complete until the last dish is washed, the last gift is opened and you have secured your wedding gown preservation.

Once you've taken care of these details, it's time to focus on marriage preservation. You're on your own for that one.
