Simple tips to care for your Wedding Dress


We have been searching the archives and this was one of my favorite posts.  Brides spend a lot of money on their wedding dress and it is important that you know how to care for your Wedding Dress.

Hello, I am Rosario Intelisano, my specialty, my passion, the core of my ambition is hand restoring and preserving bridal gowns. With many years in the industry, I am excited to share with you my little black book of tips to help you care for your dream gown.

As well as tips, I will include some of my personal experiences from working in this industry and the dresses (plus their stories).

Here are some common questions and tips I am asked:

  1. “What do I do if I stain my dress?”
  2. The second best tip is to avoid direct heat. Heat in general weakens material causing the fabric to yellow and age. This is why dry-cleaning is thought to “torture” the fabric and is avoided when it comes to restoring bridal dresses.
  3. Lastly, I would recommend you take the garment to be professionally cleaned within a month of the stain occurring, the more time that passes, the more difficult it is to remove the stain making it harder to restore the dress to its original state.

I hope this article helps you next time you are in a state of frenzy from an incidental stain. Collect yourself and remember to leave the stain, let it air dry and take it to be professionally removed as soon as possible.
