@Amy48327:  I would possibly contact the manufacturer or the bridal shop to see what recommendations they have for the material your gown is made of.    Good Luck!

I’ve heard that emergency kits for the day-of often include a piece of chalk, to rub over any stains that happen during the reception. 

I can tell you to not use anything wet to get lip gloss off of fabric! Only use dry things (like chalk, or baking soda) to gently rub something wet or sticky off of fine fabric. Anything wet, like a wipe or a stain stick, will only smear it.

Good luck!

Well, that’s good that it’s not right at the bust or something, what color is your lipglosss? was it a nude color? Try taking a pictue of your dress from far away to see if it even shows up in pictures…What material is your dress?? If it’s not silk you might be able to use goo gone

I agree with contacting the manufacturer to check with them on the fabric of your dress. For day of wedding dress emergencies, I recommend chalk to cover it up, but I think you can do better since you have time!

Call your local botique wedding dress shop and ask who they use to clean their brides dresses.  It might not be cheap, but I would trust someone that a high quality botique uses.
