Ok, so we have learnt how to handle the crisis of staining your dream gown and all the steps necessary to achieve the best result in removing the stain. Now I would like to share some of my personal techniques used to preserve the heirloom.

There is need to know facts about fabrics and once you know these, the methods used for preservation all make sense.

As previously discussed, heat ages and weakens fabric being one of the major causes of why white garments yellow over time.

Acid free paper is used to line the preservation box and protect the dress. The acid free paper acts as a continual treatment, as it absorbs any chemicals that may come into contact with the gown after restoration. Ensuring that the dress is kept in its original, natural, beautiful state.

  1. Instead of booking the most expensive reception hall, why not have the reception at a local church or
    at someones home. For example – you can add acai to ice cream, cereal, smoothies, milkshakes,
    and other beverages. A long veil, elegant bridal jewelry, and a pretty headpiece will make sure that
    no one mistakes you for a bridesmaid in an ivory dress.
