1. The Veil: Your veil, delicate and diaphanous, needs careful attention:

Long Bridal Veil

  • Storage: Store it either hung up or laid flat inside a garment bag to shield from dust.
  • Cleaning: Only spot clean using mild detergent and cold water. For a deeper clean, trust a professional familiar with wedding apparel.
  • De-wrinkling: Employ a steamer or a low-heat iron, pressing from the veil’s underside and evading any embellishments.

2. Shoes That Twinkle: Those beautiful shoes deserve love too.

  • Storage: Place them in their original box or a shoe bag, in a cool, dry area.
  • Cleaning: For silk or satin finishes, a damp cloth should suffice. For leather, use a specialist leather cleaner. Always patch-test any cleaning method first.

3. Gloves - The Touch of Elegance: Maintaining your gloves' pristine condition isn't a tough task.

  • Storage: Lay them flat, away from snag-prone items.
  • Cleaning: Cold water hand wash with a gentle detergent works best. Lay them flat for drying.
  • Wrinkle Removal: Use a protective cloth and iron inside-out on a low setting.

4. Robes for the Bridal Party: Whether it's for prep time photos or lounging, your robes deserve attention.

  • Storage: Utilize padded hangers to retain shape.
  • Cleaning: Typically, machine washing on a delicate cycle with cold water is safe. Always check the label. Air or low-heat tumble drying is recommended.
  • Wrinkles: A low-heat iron or steamer will smooth them out.

5. Jean Jacket – The Fun After-Party Attire: Yes, even your funky, personalized jean jacket needs some TLC!

  • Storage: Hang it up to keep its shape intact.
  • Cleaning: For non-customized jackets, a cold wash inside out is best. For those with personalized details, spot cleaning is safest.
  • Personalized Details: Avoid direct ironing over painted or customized sections.

6. T-Shirt/Sweatshirt Memories: Your bachelorette party T-shirt or wedding-day prep tee can last a lifetime if cared for correctly.

  • Storage: Neatly fold or hang.
  • Cleaning: Turn inside out, machine wash cold. To maintain the print and shape, air dry or use a tumble dryer on a gentle cycle.
  • Ironing: Turn inside out and iron on a cool setting.
