How to Preserve Your Silk Sample Wedding Dress Like a Pro
Silk is a classic superstar fabric for wedding dresses that marks all of the boxes when it comes to elegance, durability, and comfort. If you’re sensitive to some fabrics, silk is mostly hypoallergenic and it’s also naturally derived since it’s created by silkworm larvae.
With all of this said, silk is unique and begs the question of whether it requires special cleaning care for pristine preservation.
If you’ve found a beautiful silk sample wedding dress in Jacksonville and want to give it a refresh, here are our best tips! Let’s go.
Is it Safe to Wash Silk in the Washing Machine?
While it’s true that some non-pure silk wedding gowns can be machine washed, it’s highly important to do thorough research beforehand before tossing it in.
If your sample wedding dress has embellishments then it’s definitely not a good idea, as these intricate materials can come undone. Washing silk also increases the risk of shrinking.
The best course of action is to clarify the cleaning procedure with the designer. You can also consult with a professional dry cleaner who has experience dealing with silk wedding dresses.

Can I Put My Sample Silk Wedding Dress in the Dryer?
Heat and silk do not go together, so it’s not a good idea to put your sample wedding gown in the dryer. If so, you might be dealing with a dress that’s too small since heat can shrink the fabric!
The Best Way to Store a Silk Sample Wedding Dress
Keep dust and dirt away from your silk wedding dress by folding it loosely in acid-free paper and gently placing it inside a garment bag or box.
Store it in a cool, dry place where sunlight can’t touch it, as it can cause discoloration.
Remember that alcohol can also damage the fabric, so be cautious when spritzing perfume or hairspray around the dress.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
