How To Look After Your Wedding Dress Before The Big Day

If you’re anything like me, finding and purchasing your wedding dress is a big wedding highlight! Something you might not have thought about is how to look after your gown. Many brides plan to hang their wedding dress in a cupboard and come back to it on the Big Day! But, there are a few steps in between and some very helpful and practical things you can do to avoid damaging your dress unintentionally.

Our friends at Bridal Gown Cleaning shared a brilliant post with their expert tips and we couldn’t resist passing on their wisdom!



How to look after your wedding gown

  1. Hoover your room
  2. Close your curtains/blinds to keep the sunlight from fading your gown
  3. Place a clean, white sheet on the floor under your gown
  4. Use white gloves to avoid staining
  5. Take your gown out of the bridal store bag if it’s plastic and non-breathable
  6. Hang the gown on a strong wooden hanger
  7. Cover with a white duvet sheet, with an opening to the end, allowing the train to hang
  8. If your dress is vintage or too delicate to hang, place it flat on a bed covered under and over by a white sheet
