Tricks to preserve wedding attire

New Delhi: Dry clean your wedding outfit right after your marriage ceremony is over, cover it in a clean muslin sheet and more to maintain it, says an expert.

Designer Lalit Dalmia suggests how:

* Don't store your bridal outfit in an area where change in temperature or humidity occurs.

* Cover it in a clean muslin sheet to protect it from light and dust.

* Don't hang your outfit by the shoulder straps, instead hang it by the loops located inside. By using loops, you can avoid stretching of the look of the outfit.

* Dry clean it immediately after your wedding to avoid staining and discolouration.

* Don't store your footwear with it as fumes from the leather and glue may cause damage and discoloration.

* Cover key areas of your wedding dress with uncoloured, acid-free tissue paper while travelling. You can wrap the folds with tissue paper to avoid wrinkling.

* Before placing your wedding dress in the acid-free and archival-quality wedding chest, always look for an expert to inspect your wedding outfit.
