Ask the Laundress
Can you give me a recipe to follow in cleaning and preparing my wedding dress for preservation? The dress is made of a high quality polyester satin skirt with a nylon lace bodice. The tule underskirt/petticoat is detachable from the dress. Also, the veil is a delicate antique blusher veil in a navy blue. Cleaning tips on this as well would be helpful. Would be a mistake to store the veil with the dress?
While we don’t launder or preserve wedding gowns, we can definitely refer you to a few places that can help you. I would contact them directly with your questions.
