Dirty Wedding Dress :(

I went to pick up my dress from the alteration place and before i had noticed a brown smudge on the side of my dress...i just figured it was dirt so I was off to find a place to have it cleaned. come to find out its water damage! My dress is polyester so you have to do special crap to clean it and its white. I went to MW Cleaners and they won't clean wedding dresses before they are worn for liability, and another cleaners my alteration lady suggested could not give me a price and acted like they weren't going to be able to clean it.


I need help to see if there is something I can do to clean it or if these people I have dealt with so far are just jerks...I'm so upset because I had my dressed shipped to me and it came in a jacket (thick plastic) and my FMIL had it hanging in the jacket in her room for months I have no idea how it got water and dirty water on it!

Was the brown spot on the dress when you picked it up or did it get there afterwards? If it was damaged when you received it you might be able to get some service from the original company. Otherwise try to find some specialty cleaners (expensive though) who do lace, gowns, fur coats, etc. because they will know how to handle properly. Do a google search on dry cleaners and wedding gowns together or some of those companies that do post-wedding preservation services. Good luck, don't get too stressed out!
