Your Dream Wedding Dress: How to Protect It and Save It

Special to OneWed from Madame Paulette You might not have thought much about what you want to do with your wedding dress after the big day, but if you want to preserve your wedding dress, either to be used by your daughter, to be sold, or just to have you'll need to protect it. Madame Paulette is the leader in dress restoration, but they offer you these top three tips so that you won't need their services • The most important thing to remember with storing a gown is that it has to avoid the elements - so it should not be stored where there is heat or cold, or sunlight. Acid free paper is also very important to wrap the dress, and putting it in a sealed box is important too. You can remove the dress once a year to air it out. • Have your dress cleaned by a specialist. A regular dry cleaner doesn’t have the expertise to take care of the fine materials of a wedding dress. Standard cleaning that dry cleaners do can melt beads and oxidize metallics. • We recommend that the bride carries the Madame Paulette Professional Stain Removal kit with her on her wedding day. It’s small enough to fit into a handbag and can save the day in the event that something were to spill on the dress. Conventional stain removal methods and stain sticks will only harm the fabric of a wedding dress. The Madame Paulette Organization is one of the most recognized and respected cleaning and restoration companies in the world. Madame Paulette’s services range from European tailoring, bridal cleaning, alterations and preservation; couture and vintage cleaning; hand laundering of shirts, fine linens and bedding; interior cleaning including water and fire restoration and pest control; leather and fur servicing; and the newly added touring, destination valet and closet concierge.
