What Does It Mean To Steam A Wedding Dress?

Posted by David Whitehurst on June 28, 2011

 

Steaming a Wedding Dress Refers to one process of removing wrinkles.  You clean the wedding dress and then either steam it or hand press it to remove wrinkles.  You do not "steam clean" a wedding dress.

Wedding dresses are worn on a special day, so they are usually made in a special way.  Delicate fabrics, intricate decorations, and unique pieces of flare are usually included in a wedding gown design, which means they are fragile garments requiring special care.  Dry cleaners that provide wedding dress cleaning and preservation services will also steam or hand press wedding dresses to remove the wrinkles.  But many people don't know the difference between these two processes.

Restoring Mom's Wedding Dress

Posted by David Whitehurst on May 16, 2011

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a wedding dress worn by a Mother from Oxford, Mississippi back in 1968.  Her daughter was recently engaged and Mom wondered what shape her wedding dress was in since it had been preserved after her wedding. She opened her preserved wedding dress only to find that it had yellowed over the years.  She wanted to know if there was any possible way to restore the original color to the point that her daughter, who is getting married next year, could wear that wedding dress if that's what she wanted.  Here is a link to that article.

Five More Wedding Dress Trends for 2011

Posted by David Whitehurst on April 29, 2011

Last week we talked about five wedding dress styles that have exploded in popularity this year, but maybe you didn’t like any of them or you want more options before you choose. Fortunately, here are five more choices for you to consider!

Beads

Beading has always been popular on wedding dresses, but this year designers seem to be taking the idea to a whole new level.  Consider last week’s suggestion of a large bow on the shoulder and cover it with beads, or imagine a sash or belt-like design around the waist made entirely of beads.  Some designers will cover straps or a couple inches around the neckline with beading, and instead of being garish it can look absolutely stunning.
