What to do with your dress after The Big Day

The question of what to do with your dress after the Big Day may not occur to you until after the event itself.  Or maybe you’re one of those girls who has every little detail sorted.

Whatever you’re like, the probability is that you’re going to get the dress dry-cleaned.  If you’re going to keep it, you’ll want to make sure that its not going to get discoloured or damaged.  And if you’re going to sell it on – well, its got to be in tip top condition.

So here is a trade secret.  I know of a brilliant dry cleaners in St. Annes.  Even better, its only round the corner from where I live.

Fylde Coast Service Centre on Alexandria Drive (yes, I know it doesn’t sound like a dry cleaners but it is,I promise!) are incredibly professional and incredibly good at what they do.  They are old-school dry cleaners.  Meaning that they take time to explain the process to you and they’ll treat your dress with the respect it deserves.   They do repairs – great if you’ve ripped a hem with your Jimmy Choos!   They’ll even box it up properly – a boon whether you’re keeping it as a keepsake or selling it on.

And they don’t cost an arm and a leg either.

Just want to tell you about a fabulous dress shop that I came across at The Tickled Trout wedding fair.  If you want something unusual and a bit vintagey this is the place to go.  I didn’t meet the lady who runs it but I did meet her Mum in the coffee place.  She was lovely!

Go down to Jenna Elizabeth Bridal  in Preston and have a look at the selection.

There were some fabulous dresses – short and long but all very understated elegance rather than bling.  Very little in the way of strapless gowns that we’ve seen so much of in the last few years.  And I loved them all.  Jenna is a buyer with exceptionally good taste and a liking for vintage I think. 

Definitely go and check out her range of dresses – its exceptional.
