Important Tips to Keep Your Wedding Dress Clean, Charlotte, North Carolina

One of the most important aspects of your wedding day is the white dress. You’ll want to take the necessary wedding gown preservation precautions to ensure the dress stays white the day of and after the big day. Cunningham Cleaners in Charlotte, North Carolina, offers tips for dress preservation backed by over 50 years of experience.

Even though it might seem like a good idea, Cunningham Cleaners actually recommends you don’t clean your wedding gown before the big day if it’s not dirty or if it’s brand new, as wedding dress cleaning can be tricky. If your wedding gown happens to be a sample gown or from a vintage second-hand store, however, cleaning it may be necessary. As long as you choose a specialized dry cleaning service with experience in wedding gown preservation, such as Cunningham Cleaners, you’ll have a low chance of something happening to your dress.

While your wedding gown may not need cleaning, if you’re having a destination wedding or you're traveling a bit with your gown, you might have to deal with some wrinkling. For a do-it-yourself quick fix, try hanging your gown and running the shower on hot until the room fills with steam. Just be careful the water from the shower doesn’t touch your dress. To be on the safe side, consider having a dry cleaning service professionally press and steam your dress.

On the day of your wedding, Cunningham Cleaners advises you keep your gown in a dark, moderate temperature room, free from a plastic bag. Be diligent about avoiding menu and bar items with the ability to stain, along with car doors covered in grease.

If you do happen to run into a problem and find yourself needing any sort of wedding gown preservation before, during, or after your big day, give Cunningham Cleaners a call at (704) 366-6565. You can also visit the website for more information on all of the dry cleaning services available.
