Post-Nuptial Wedding Dress cleaning
I was so enthralled and disoriented after my DD's wonderful wedding on May 1 that I kept her wedding dress hanging in my home office so I could look at it and sigh a hundred times a day, remembering how fabulous she looked in it and what a wonderful wedding it was! (Did I say that already?)
Finally last Friday I took it to the cleaners to be cleaned and carefully put away--whatever they do with wedding dresses which will almost certainly live out their lives in a box in the attic forever. (I have my own wedding dress--1967--and my mother's wedding dress--1939--in boxes in my attic).
Imagine my shock when I was told that it would cost $210 to clean and preserve her dress! I brought it home again instead of leaving it there.
Is this really necessary? Sheesh!! I thought the days of shelling out the big bucks were over!
Anyone have any advice?
Judy, happy mother-in-law
