After our wedding in Mexico earlier this year I came home to discover that my dress was totally destroyed. There was a thick layer of dirt around the whole bottom, coctail mix all down the front and lots of sweat and grime from me and all the other dancing guests.
Naturally it was time to take the dress to the dry cleaner. Yowza! Do you know how much it costs to dryclean a wedding dress? Well over $200!
I hummed and hawed over this price…and started to think of other options. What if I took it to a regular dry cleaner instead of a wedding dress dry cleaner? How much would that cost? What would happen to my dress – would it get ruined. Did my dress really need the fancy treatment versus just regular dry cleaning?
At $265 it’s hard to say what you need. It’s the worstcase scenarios that make sure you spend that crazy amount though.
You might be able to save by taking your dress to a cheaper dry cleaner, but if your dress gets ruined you will be filled with regret over your choice!
