If it is impossible to clean and box the gown prior to the honeymoon, Gowing recommends storing the dress in a 100 per cent cotton garment bag,cocktail dress as plastic cleaning bags don’t allow the garment to breathe. Make sure to hang the dress on a white padded silk coat hanger as opposed to a lacquered wooden coat hanger.Store veils, accessories and silk shoes with the dress. “I wore a three-metre long veil edged in the same lace as my gown and it’s going to be boxed,inexpensive cocktail dresses as will my silk stole. My sister had shoes made of the same silk and they were wrapped separately then boxed in. Boxing is also a good way to know that everything is all together,” Gowing says.“You need to clean your gown immediately as, over time, stains will set and they will become more and more difficult to remove,” says Gowing. “Ideally, you want someone to drop off your gown while you’re on your honeymoon, or the cleaners we prefer can come and pick up your gown before you go.”Gowing recommends Blue & White Dry Cleaners in Crows Nest – “See Jim,red cocktail dress he’s a hand cleaner who has been doing wedding gowns for over 35 years” – and Jeeves Dry Cleaners in Lindfield – “See Andrew; again, he is a hand cleaner and I’ve been using him since I opened my first doors in the North Shore over 14 years ago. His attention to detail is fantastic.”“I only deal with natural fabrics, even in my home I tend to gravitate towards cottons, linens, silks and wools, and because they’re all natural you store them quite similarly,” says Gowing. “Store items somewhere that isn’t damp or humid, and out of the sunlight.
