Hi Bees, Another day where I’m needing your feedback. I just tried on my Vera Wang Diana sample dress that I purchased a couple months ago. The day I got it I was super excited and relieved that I’d found “the dress”. Then I placed it in the back of the closet until I would need to look into cleaning/alterations. Fast forward a couple months. Now I’m speaking with several different cleaners about the dress and they ask me what kind of damages are there. So I grab the dress out and I figure I’ll try it on while I’m at it.
Let me tell you…I’m a little sad and scared now. I know that buying a sample was a risk that I was willing to take but at the time the dress didn’t seem like it was in such bad shape. I’ve heard of several alterations/cleaners who have magically revived wedding dresses but I’m so afraid of the costs associated with that. Are there any bees out there with their own stories and recommendations?
