I know as a bride, you will be emotionally attached to your wedding dress. So, you would like to keep it for a longer period of time. But, it is very important to have it cleaned if you are keeping it. It is obvious that every dress will have dirty and perspiration stains inside the dress and which will produce foul smell.


Sometimes, it is also possible that due to excessive party you might spill alcohol on your dress while dancing or you got overexcited while cutting the cake and it fall over the dress.  So, it is very vital to get it cleaned as soon as possible because stains on wedding dress can permanently set with time and it will start showing brown circles on it caused from your perspiration.

Many people across the globe store their wedding dress in a preservation box. So, it is very important to choose or select a box and tissue paper which is acid-free in order to prevent it from making yellow marks on the wedding dress. It is very tricky to clean these yellow stains on the dress. If the box has some outing for air, it is important to block it with some high quality plastic so that it keeps the dress in perfect shape without any stains on it.
