How to Get Stains Out of Your Wedding Dress

When it comes to keeping items from your big day to look back on in years to come, it’s likely that your wedding dress will be one of the most special items. After all, it’s designed to make you feel like a princess! 


However, sometimes things just don’t quite go to plan and you may end up with stains on your wedding dress either before, during or after your special day. That’s why it’s important to be aware of how to get stains out of a wedding dress. 


Just Before the Wedding


While getting a stain on your dress right before the wedding may seem disastrous, there are ways to get around it! Many websites will recommend trying some DIY cleaning hacks, however, we would definitely say that this is not the best way forward as it could make the stain a lot worse than it originally was. Instead, try to get your dress to a professional as soon as you can as they will be able to advise you best on what to do!


A While Before or After the Wedding


If you’ve got some time before the big day, or you’re looking to get the dress cleaned afterwards, it’s always recommended that you send it to a professional rather than try any DIY unnecessarily! This is because a specialist wedding dress cleaners will know all of the best ways to treat different dress styles and fabrics. 


Even if you think that the dress won’t be able to be rescued, it’s much better to send it to an expert than try something yourself at home, as they will know the best ways to get even the toughest stains out of your wedding dress. 


At Confetti, the cleaning process is tailored to each individual dress and we can even clean dresses that are labelled ‘do not dry clean’.


Preventing Future Stains

So, your big day is over and you’ve had your dress cleaned but you’re wanting to prevent any future stains. The best way to do this is by preserving your wedding dress. 


This preservation needs to start straight away by making sure your dress is hanging up properly until you can get a special acid-free box to keep it in. You’ll need to be careful about what you use to wrap the dress in as some tissue paper can stain the dress. It’s also important to store the dress in a dry, dark area where it will be protected!
