Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable events of your life but, in the whirlwind of the day, you may not give much thought to protecting your dress.
Whether you’ve purchased the gown of your dreams or are wearing a family heirloom, your wedding gown will always hold a very special place in your heart. And, if you hope that someday your daughter will wear it, then you may want to take some precautions to protect it from the obstacle course it will run on your wedding day, Vanila Wedding Shop Dubai.
Here are some pre-wedding tips to keep your dress in tip-top shape.
It’s a good idea to have cotton shields sewn into the underarms of your gown as the excitement of the day may cause you to perspire more than usual. Be sure to apply deodorant that contains an antiperspirant to control odor as well as moisture.
Some flowers have color-intensive stamens which can stain your dress. If you are set on having such flowers in your bouquet, ask your florist if the stamens can be removed.
When getting in the limo, be certain your skirt is all the way inside the vehicle before shutting the door.
If you will be traveling with your gown, make arrangements in advance to have a reputable bridal salon get the wrinkles out. Not everyone knows how to properly handle a wedding gown, and many fabrics should never be steamed.
Your gown will be most vulnerable at your reception. Many a gown has been decorated by a guest’s red wine or a drip of salad dressing. As careful as you are, mishaps happen. In the event of a stain, try masking the spot with baking soda, cornstarch, baby powder or chalk (some of the items that should be in your wedding coordinators emergency kit). Never use white out, shoe polish or any other permanent treatment.
Always bustle your gown or lift your train as you walk around. If yours is a gown with a long skirt or train, ask your attendants to help you going up stairs, through doorways, or getting out of your vehicle. Even if your wedding venue appears pristine, that floor is not as clean you might think…your train will act like a great big dry mop that will slide around and “mop” the floor!
