I am sure you have all heard horror stories of red wine being spilled on precious garments so I thought I should pass on some advice that may save you a lot of stress and expense. Whether it be your wedding Gown, Bridesmaid or evening dress.
I had a telephone call Sunday morning from one of my dear clients who just got married the Saturday night before.
When I heard her voice, I thought something was wrong with her gown! Scary… but she just wanted to thank me for my hard work. She said everybody loved my (her) dress and everybody was asking who made her gown.
But… this story does not have a perfect ending. Unfortunately, at the end of the night, she tripped and a glass of red wine was poured on her gown. Eek! So she wanted me to advise her if there was anything she could do.
So what should you do if an accident like this happens? Put lots of salt on the stain. The salt soaks most of the red wine away. Do not try to wash it out, rub it with anything or touch it more than necessary and straight away send it to a decent dry cleaner who specialises in wedding gowns.
Let us hope this does not happen on your wedding day, however regardless of whether you and your dress make it through unscathed – you will need to dry clean your gown after your wedding day and I strongly suggest you use a good dry cleaner and not risk that lovely gown with a lesser one.
Love Fara xx
