Huh, that’s a great idea.  Never thought of that!

I’m glad that washing your wedding dress worked out so well for you. 

$175 to dry clean a wedding dress is a normal price; many people pay $200+ to dry clean and preserve their gowns in a keepsake box. Handwashing isn’t recommended for such an expensive and sentimental piece of clothing, especially wedding dresses made of silk or lace.

That’s awesome. When I am feeling brave I may try the same with mine! I have no interest in a keepsake box.

My grandmother owns a charity thrift shop and they get wedding dresses in all the time. She just pops them in the washer and they come out good as new! She said it works like a charm and she’s done it dozens of times.

We did that all the time at the bridal shop I used to work at.  The owner would take them home and machine wash them.  Never had a problem.
