If it’s polyester, some brides have washed in a huge bathtub.  If it’s silk (and even if it’s polyester), you can send it to a wedding dress cleaner but it’s expensive and takes a long time to get your dress back.

@marbar:  What do you mean by drycleaning won’t do anything?

 

Drycleaning worked MIRACLES on my dress, I was convinced none of the mess from walking around all day with it dragging on the ground would come out and it ALL DID.

 

Is there a tag you can check the fabric, that would be helpful to know.  Or if you know the style no. you can look it up.

Does it need to be altered at all? Your seamstress should be able to clean it, mine is.

I would take it to a dry cleaner.  A lot of them specialize in cleaning and preserving dresses, so I’m not sure why they wouldn’t be able to make yours looks brand new.
