Wedding Dresses : How to Preserve Your Wedding Dress
Hi I’m Jenna Dunn at Walkers’ Bridal and Prom
of Provo, Utah. I’d like to talk to you a little bit about how to preserve your wedding
dress after the day. Some different home remedies that you could use might involve purchasing
a vacuum bag where you could suck the air out of the bag and then that could preserve.
If you are going to be moving around in the first couple years of your marriage. It is
fine to put it in a plastic zip up bag. You can also put it in a box. Make sure it is
very well and covered. However, some of these methods don’t work quite as well and after
a time your dress will yellow unless you get it professionally cleaned and preserved. There
are different companies that you can actually send your wedding dresses to and they’ll preserve
it and clean it and send it back to your home through the mail. You also can contact local
dry cleaners in your area to see if any of them do offer the preservation service. Most
preservation services can range anywhere from $100 to $300 and if your gown is a little
bit more designer or contains pure silk materials it can range up to $1000 depending on the
style, the cut and the fabric of you dress.
