    I bought my dress from a certain 'outlet store' and I love it, however it's got a few marks on it. The bottom of the dress is pretty dirty & there's some fake tan marks around the top of the dress.
    I know it was from an outlet store so fully aware it wouldn't be 100% but I don't want to feel like I'm in a 'dirty' dress on my big day. Has anyone got any recommendations for having it cleaned or where to get it done etc?

    Thanks! X

    I think a few people have used J0hn50ns the cleaners.
    Are you not able to get off the marks with damp cloth or are they too much?

    I have one of them round the corner from work, just a bit worried about whether it will be alright or if it will be damaged etc.
    Did think that but it probably is a bit much to try and do with a damp cloth, they're pretty orange marks and the last thing I want to end up doing is making it worse...

    Your best bet is to take it into somewhere and ask them if they can help. Most dry cleaners do wedding dress cleaning xx

    I'd defo take it to somewhere to get it cleaned properly, not worth the risk of trying to sort it out yourself. When I had mine cleaned after the wedding I took it back to the shop I got it from and they done it for fairly cheap.

    Dry cleaners will do it no problem, or some bridal shops can send it off to be cleaned for you.

    I'd say make sure you to to a reputable one as Ive heard some real horror stories about cleaning services gone wrong. Id hate it to happen to you before the big day.
