I think it depends on your food that you are having…   if its something that might be likely to drip…  might be a good thing to carry a shout pen or wipe

Personally, I’d avoid putting on the dress until like 5 minutes before the actual ceremony to limit the stains before the most important part.  During the reception, I have no clue–tide to-go pen?

Im a spiller 🙂 always spill my food/drinks on me or someone else, so we will have a tide to go pen just in case 🙂

I didn’t have a back up plan. I did make a point of sticking to clear drinks all night. I think some champagne got on my dress but obviously it didn’t show.

I’ve actually heard the best thing to do is to get white chalk and cover the stain rather than try to remove it!

if you have a DOC, that person should be prepared to help you with that.

be sure to get to know what fabric your dress is made out of before you try putting chemicals on it. if in doubt, call a dry cleaner or maybe a fabric store to ask what is safe to use.

@sunedlyt:  I’m not sure, I bet we could all google the main type of fabric our dresses are and find out if stain pens would be okay on them?

Honestly though I’m not worried about it.  My dress isn’t as fancy as others and I got a hell of a deal so if I stain it, I’m not going to be too upset.  Part of me wants to keep the dress after the wedding and part of me wants to just give it away.  I’m going to try to avoid staining it but I’m seriously clumsy and at formal events I get super nervous, I’ve spilled water twice at formal functions.

I usually spill, but when you’re eating in a wedding dress you because more careful.  I packed a tide pen and shout wipes and didn’t use either.

You could always go to a local fabric store and buy a small piece of fabric that your dress is made from and test out the tide to go pen on that if you are really worried about its affect on the fabric. I am a spiller but I am always prepared for it, I would rather be safe than sorry. I also asked my dry cleaner what they would recommend I used and she gave me some AMAZING stain remover that they use professionally.

To me, this is one more reason to stick with white wine all night. Even with the atrocious hangover.

I didn’t get spilled on or spill on myself at all. I was too busy working the room with my wife, and we didn’t eat/drink much. 🙂 Guests typically left their food/drinks at the table, and there were no spills on the dance floor.

@Mrs.Goguen:  That’s a really good idea!

We did all our posed photographs before the ceremony, and my dress was fine. May I add that we took our fair share of photos outside, and it was February, raining, and had snowed the previous day, so there was muddy slush everywhere.

I didn’t spill a single thing on me during the reception, nor did anyone else, even though we were all carrying drinks around for much of it. Even though people stepped on my train every two seconds, my skirt stayed footprint-free. I don’t know if it was made of some sort of magic silk or what, but at the end of the night all it had was a few dark spots on the underside from where the skirt had dragged on the sidewalk, but absolutely nothing visible on the right side of the fabric!
