Why You Should Preserve Your Wedding DressTim Vick
A wedding dress is more than just a dress. When you look at it memories and emotions start flooding back. You think about the day you finally found the dress, where you were surrounded by your closest friends and family. You think about the one you married, and how happy you were. Then you think about your reception, and how much fun you had in that dress. Vick’s Cleaners offers wedding dress cleaning and preservation services. It is important to keep that dress looking the same it did on your wedding day for years to come, and here’s why.
Hidden Stains You’ll Regret Decades Later
You may not see some stains now, but years from now they will appear. Things like deodorant, water or white wine. All things that are clear now, can appear years later. These stains begin to deteriorate the fabric over time, and you won’t notice until you pull out the dress later on. When you take your dress to Vick’s Cleaners your dress will be thoroughly cleaned before it is preserved.
Prevent Yellow, Stretched Fabric
Leaving your dress on a hanger in the back of the closet can slowly ruin it over time. With so much fabric, that weight can begin to pull the dress on the hanger, giving your dress a stretched out look. As the season’s change, so does the temperature of your closet. Moisture in the air can wear on the dress, giving it a yellow color over time. When you preserve your wedding dress, it is stored in a box where it will have a permanent location, with no exposure to the air. Open this box decades later, and see the beautiful white dress you fell in love with the first time.
A Living Memory
You never know when you’ll want to pull out your wedding dress again. It may be on an anniversary years later when you and your partner want to take a look and reminisce. It could be decades later when your daughter is getting married. It is very popular today to see vintage dresses. Whether she wants to wear the dress or take a piece of it to add to something new, you’ll want that dress looking just as white as it did on your special day.
