How to Deal with a Dress in Distress on Your Wedding Day
It’s only natural to think about what could go wrong on your wedding day. Trying to take every possible disaster into consideration is not realistic though. However, there are a few key things you should probably try and plan for.
You’ve been dying to wear your dream wedding dress and ending up with a stain is the last thing you want. Unfortunately, these things do happen but there are ways to still have a picture-perfect dress even if disaster strikes.
There is a lot that happens in the bridal suite. From drinking mimosas to eating snacks and applying makeup. Having an emergency kit on hand will ensure you can quickly and easily deal with any stains before you head down the aisle.
First off, don’t panic if something does get on your dress. And whatever you do, don’t rub the stain. When you have the right supplies, it is possible to remove or cover up any unexpected stains.
Here is what your emergency dress kit should include:
- – White Cotton Towels & Stain Removal Wipes. If a stain occurs, never rub it. Dab it gently with a soft, white cotton towel. If the stain is still visible, use stain removal wipes to remove any excess.
- – White Chalk. This is useful for covering up any stains once they’ve been treated. Gently rub the chalk over any marks that remain.
- – Baby Powder. This is also great for absorbing and covering up any stains, provided it’s applied immediately.
– Rubbing Alcohol. Ink and grease stains can be treated with rubbing alcohol, just make sure it’s denatured rubbing alcohol. Use a white cotton towel to apply and gently rub it in circular motions.
What you can also do is speak to the store or designer that you bought your dress from and get their professional recommendations. They know what materials have been used and what you should and shouldn’t use!
Keeping these basics on hand will give you some added peace of mind on the day of your wedding.
