I wore my mother's wedding dress for my big day. I got it altered by another professional who told me I couldn't get the oxidation of the lace out, unless I replaced all the lace. So I wore it and loved the vintage look of the ivory lace (that was once white.)
After my big day I wanted to get my dress cleaned and preserved. I went to one dry cleaner that had a poster saying We Clean & Preserve Wedding Dresses well after 2 MONTHS and 5 phone calls; they said they couldn't do it. One of the first excuses is they had to wait for the box. Then the 5th phone call they said they haven't started and couldn't help. That's when I took my dress to Wedding Gown Care Specialist. They were SO wonderful, and said they would box it up right way and were effortless!
That's also when I realized that they could have made my mother's oxidized dress white again, and I could have had my dress altered there from the begging. It was clearly too late but I was told by a different tailor that they couldn't, or I would have to replace all the lace. Just knowing I could have had the option was crazy!! I hope this post helps inform other brides that they can take an older dress and make it look new! Also if your gown is as important know to someone who doesn't just dry clean, go to a professional like Wedding Gown Care Specialists. They know EXACTLY how to make sure it is cleaned, and preserved!
