Preserve and Protect Your Wedding Dress - Frame it With Frame My Frock

Updated: Jan 6

Congratulations on your recent nuptials!

You have a beautiful wedding dress, but you may be wondering how to properly clean and preserve it for years to come. Like you, thousands of newlyweds are wanting to preserve their wedding dress so it looks as good as they did on the big day.

It can be tempting to just hang your dress up in your closet, but keep in mind that like other garments, wedding dresses are made from delicate fabrics and need to be cared for to keep them looking their best. To ensure your dress is kept clean and free from bacteria or stains, there are a few simple steps you can take.

  1. It's best to have your dress professionally dry-cleaned as soon as possible after the wedding. This ensures that your dress remains clean, fresh and free from any dirt, oils, or smudges. You may even consider using a specialist bridal dry cleaner to preserve the delicate fabrics and embellishments of your dress.

  2. Before taking it to be dry-cleaned, make sure it has been properly hung up. Keep it in an acid-free tissue paper and store it in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.

  3. Long-term storage of your dress is important, and you may want to consider investing in a bridal storage box to help preserve it. Many wedding dress preservation companies offer a wide range of linen or fabric-covered boxes, designed specifically for wedding dresses.

  4. 4. Avoid storing your dress in garment bags or plastic containers. These materials are not ideal, as the fabric may become dry or stained over time due to a lack of air circulation.

  5. Whatever you do, don’t forget to show off your dress! Frame My Frock is an excellent way to immortalize your dress, with handmade frames designed to fit all sizes and styles of wedding gowns. As an additional bonus, it’s a great conversation piece to remember your special day.

No wedding dress should be forgotten in the back of a closet, unappreciated and unprotected. By taking the time to properly clean and store your dress, you can look back fondly at your memories and cherish the beauty of your dress for years to come. With a few simple steps, you can ensure your wedding day is preserved forever in the form of a unique and beautiful piece of art.
