Me too!  Good for you!  No reason to get blinked by the dry cleaners or dress “preservation” people.

I use to work for David’s Bridal and we did bridal/fashion shows…we always washed the dresses in the washing machine. Unless the gown is a material that can’t be washed normally, that way you did it is perfect.

I am so glad a fellow bee “took the plunge”!  It’s sad so many places pray on the sentimental value and charge outrageous amounts for cleaning.  BEST decision I ever made.  :). So happy it worked for you!!

Came out perfectly Smile

I don’t understand why you would pay hundreds of dollars when it can be washed like normal clothes? Just take extra care (like put it in a mesh laundry bag like the OP said) tie up a corset before washing or take it off and wash it separately. etc…

@happyface:  I put mine in the washing machine and it came out great. Would not pay the ridiculous amounts dry cleaners want.
