cleaning a wedding dress is mighty expensive, like at least 150. a trim shouldn’t cost too much, but you’re in nyc, so who knows. i would expect another 100.

By trim, do you mean shorten/cut or decorate? You can buy plenty of pretty trim for not terribly expensive, and if you have a friend who sews, ask for her/his assistance as a wedding gift!

What is the dress made out of?  The bridal salon that I bought my dress from (it was a high end sample shop) told me the wash their dresses in a tub of soapy water.  Then hang dry them and steam them.
