Wedding Dress Preservation







Brides know that having their wedding dress preserved makes a good memorial. The question usually arises about cleaning and protecting their petticoat-slip-crinoline.

If the slide is a regular A-line slide, then it includes the wedding dress usually made free with most wedding clothing companies.

It becomes a more difficult question when deciding what to do with a petticoat with layers of crinoline. The crinoline is the "stiffing" fabric that keeps the jacket out and gives fullness to the dress. Depending on how much petticoat is designed to be, it is determined by how many layers of crinoline make up petticoat.

First, the tie is too bulky to be included in the wedding dress. Some preservatives will clean and maintain the crinoline grinder separately for a separate charge.

Cleaning your crinoline slip will take some of the stiffness of the material.

The best suggestion is to simply store your petticoat. Very rarely do they get dirty. If it gets dirty, it can be washed in a regular washing machine and dried at low heat. Store it in a cardboard box that is taken off. If you are worried about it, put it in acid-free tissue before placing it in the box.

Do not store your slip in any form of plastic bag or plastic container.

Long-term storage is best done in this method, and submitting it with your wedding dress preservation is not necessary and only adds to your expense.
