Should I Preserve My Wedding Dress?

Posted by Brandi Kane on February 7, 2013

If you plan to sell your Wedding Dress, you should definately get it preserved.  Preserving a Wedding Dress can be done at anytime after a wedding.  This being said, do note that the sooner you get your Wedding Dress to a Wedding Gown Specialist for cleaning and preservation, the better the outcome.  The longer stains and oils sit on the fabric, the harder it is to get out.  There's even a chance that the stain may have set it and be impossible to remove.  Don't let this happen to you, take your dress in immediately.  Be Proactive, not Reactive.
