We know-how efforts are put by you to find the right wedding lehenga
for days and what it takes to create the lehenga of your dreams,
and afterwards, these are often ignored and left out to be hung.
It doesn't matter how much hurry you are in to get to catch a flight,
and if you gave a thought of keeping it or selling it,
that precious memory in the form of the dress must be taken care of.
And if you are those noble personalities who want your kids to wear them
for their big day or you have an idea to style them a bit differently and wear them again and again
with lesser concerns, Here are few ways to do so.
Dry Clean It
Getting it dry cleaned immediately as quickly as possible, as overtime,
if it has any stains, it tends to become more and more difficult to get removed.
Sweat marks (especially under arms one) leave a blotch on it and it gets darker gradually.
Experts advise of getting it dry cleaned within one week of the wedding.
Get it Re-Finished
Post getting it dry cleaned,
send the outfit back to the store which made it for finishing in case it has any loose ends,
embellishments, fallen stones and disfigured embroidery or bad shaped zari work.
Do not just hang your wedding lehenga and leave it to rest for long.
Hanging a dress gradually alters its shape and pattern.
Instead of hanging we recommend to keep it properly folded in the box provided for storage.
Try not to crease it, wrap the sleeves gently before tucking it with a choli.
The trickiest part of it is Folding the skirt part of the lehenga.
Most of the wedding lehengas are laced with sequins,
have beadworks, pearls stitched on it,
place some white tissue paper of lesser Ph levels (Mal mal cloth is highly recommended) in each of its folds
to avoid any kind of snagging or scratching in between.
Storing It Carefully
Store and keep your outfits in such place which is free from extreme variance
in temperature and avoid keeping them at the basement or an attic.
Store your expensive wedding outfit in dark and dry areas
with a low level of temperatures and with lesser humid levels.
Do not store them in plastic dress covers for long.
These ones are suitable for storing before the wedding, but not for longer durations;
Cover It Properly
Post folding the lehenga before boxing it,
wrap it in an unbleached muslin cloth for some extra protective layers.
Unbleached material will save it from discolouring.
Once you are sure that you won’t be wearing your wedding lehenga
during the coming days or months, then get it packed.
Constantly wrapping, unwrapping and re-packaging
it may cause serious damage to your precious buy.
Protection from Months and Insects
Try putting some dry neem leaves or Sandal sachets
to keep moths and other insects from damaging the fabric.
Select The Right Storage
It is important to select the right kind of box
in which you want to store your wedding lehenga.
Always go for a solid card box which should be of acid-free materials
made or you may simply go for a wooden chest to store it.
Additionally, make sure that no direct sunlight falls on the dress
as it could lead to colour fading and damage to delicate precious stones in it.
Before putting the lehenga inside the box,
cover all its sides with acid-free or lesser ph levels of paper.
Gently spread one layer of tissue paper over the lehenga as you get it packed inside the box.
Let it Breath
Always take out your outfit from the box,
one in a while to let it breathe some fresh air and have some light.
This keeps the fabric alive and keeps it refreshed.
Checking and Refolding
Do keep checking it from time to time and observe any marks, stains and appearance of creases on it
then refold it to prevent the fabric from weakening or cracking in between the creases.
