I often get asked by brides what to do with their wedding dress after the wedding. Some brides are interested to know how to care and store the gown, others would like to think of ways to re-use the gown. Here are a few suggestions –
Firstly, I suggest you get the gown cleaned as soon as possible. This will give your gown the best opportunity to get rid of any dirt accumulated on the day. If you get a mark on the day, it’s a good idea not too touch it!! Wetting it, rubbing it or applying heat will make the mark set.
Dry Cleaners we recommend-
It’s also a good idea to get a quote from your local dry cleaner.
You can either store your wedding dress on a coat hanger in a breathable dress bag or have it wrapped in acid free paper and placed in a box. We provide each of our brides with a coat hanger and breathable dress bag. Stay away from wire coat hangers and plastic bags.
Why not change the colour of your wedding dress so you can wear it again as a cocktail or evening gown? This is such a great idea if you go to black tie events and think of the fond memories you’ll have wearing it.
It’s a good idea to shorten your wedding dress, you could make it knee-length or even remove the train. It will make it easier to wear the gown again!
You could use the fabric from your wedding dress to create a Christening/Naming Day outfit for your children.Hayley & Joseph’s Eliza House Wedding Elyse & Rik’s Romantic Kings Park Wedding
