Cleaning & Preserving Your Dress
You should get your dress professionally cleaned as soon as possible after the wedding. Find a reputable cleaner who specializes in cleaning and storing wedding dresses. Who knows, maybe you may just need it some day for your own daughter!
Before the wedding, purchase a white, cotton sheet (with as little synthetic fiber content as possible) and wash it in hot water without detergent. Bring it with you on your wedding day so you can wrap your dress in it after you take it off. Since most couples leave for their honeymoon right away, designate a friend or relative to bring your dress to the cleaners. Be sure that either you or the person who brings the wedding dress points out every stain. It's easy to get makeup, food and beverages spilled on your dress and you'll want to be sure that every stain is removed before storing.
