@Weetzie:  I didn’t find a cleaning necessary after alterations but it did need to be pressed.  My seamstress did that.

@Weetzie:  It goes to the cleaners before the wedding to be PRESSED, not actually cleaned.  It’s brand new!

It will probably need to be steamed or pressed, but I doubt I’ll have it cleaned.

I’m wondering the same thing as mine is a sample. – it doesn’t LOOK dirty, but I’m thinking a cleaning couldn’t hurt …does anyone know what the process is like?

I was thinking about this just the other day actually but unfortunately Im not mainly because of how expensive it is to do so!

@Weetzie:  i got it cleaned before. only bc my first seamstress was a nightmare and instea of keeping it in the garment bag, she hung it to collect dust. the tulle was filthy and i was livid.

I’d probably get it cleaned since it was a sample, whether it looks dirty or not.

I am just getting mine pressed but since yours is a sample I would probably have it cleaned as well.

@Weetzie. Mine was new but if it had been a sample I definitely would have considered it.  I did basic dry cleaning after I wore it (no preservation/no box) and it was $175.
