If it’s polyester (or not-silk) satin, you could try washing it… I know it sounds crazy, but there are a couple of threads where a bunch of bees tried it successfully.  Seems like that would be more likely to get it out than dry cleaning, especially if it’s gotten into the fibers and isn’t just sitting on top.

I had stains on my dress too and DB was able to get them out no problem.  The bridal shops have trick of the trade and they can usually get a whole myriad of stains out.  I wouldn’t worry about it until you hear from them, they really do a good job at getting things out.

@thursdayschild:

Use pure alcohol & rub it with a brand new tooth brush gently.  Keep brushing for a long time and most likely it will come off.  Don’t worry, just about all stains can be removed.  We do it all the time 🙂

My seamstress found a mark on my dress and spot cleaned it for me with no charge. Don’t freak out, they’ll come out!

@thursdayschild: Let the professionals handle it, I’m sure it will come clean. They handle these things everyday. I would not advise you trying to resolve it on your own and damage the dress more.
