My dress is extremely filthy, and I am a little embarrassed to even take it into a cleaners to have it cleaned and preserved. Does anyone have experience with getting their dress cleaned after their wedding? Are they actually able to get it cleaned up?

The longer you wait, the more difficult stains become to remove.

Mine was in my opinion FIL-THY. I was surprised then after realized that I did it to myself. Here is a post I made:
There was no garantee that a cleaner would get it all out (actually dry cleaning isn’t a good clean) and still cost a fortune. After talking to my dress maker I felt better about my idea of machine washing it. She offered to hand wash it…but I wouldn`t let anyone do that…it was way too dirty. I needed to get wet! I threw it in the machine and I was surprised at how well it worked. Not 100% but pretty close to and way better than I had hoped.
Good luck on what you decide to do.
