Hi! I'm Sarah Kolis, a custom couture wedding dress designer based in Michigan but serving the whole midwest. I love creating custom gowns and alterations for clients and I have a special love for vintage fashion. Thanks for stopping by!
Your wedding dress is likely one of the most precious garments you’ll ever own! It’s a symbol of your love, your commitment, and the memories you shared on your special day. It’s the dress you said “YES!!!” to. Preserving your wedding dress is a way to honor those memories and ensure that the dress stays in pristine condition for generations to come!
The two most important steps to preserving your wedding dress are properly cleaning and storing:
You spent hours in the gown- posing for portraits, busting moves on the dance floors, raising a glass to toast to your love. Your wedding dress will need to be cleaned and the first step in preserving your wedding dress is to have it professionally cleaned. This should be done as soon as possible after the wedding, even if the dress doesn’t look dirty!
After your dress has been cleaned, you’ll need to store it properly. Though it would be amazing to pull your wedding dress out of your closet and wear frequently, that likely isn’t going to happen, so you will want to ensure your dress is stored properly. Ideally, you should store your dress in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
