My wedding was exactly 6 months ago today. I look at my dress every once in awhile and have the same thought: I really need to do something with it.
It is a little dirty from walking around, a few random wine stains (even though I didn't drink red wine... so odd!), and some beading that has come loose. Obviously, I need to get it cleaned. However I'm torn- most everything I see from research is that cleaning & preserving is the most cost effective option, but I'm not "ready" to preserve my dress. I still have dreams of breaking it out and wearing it on our anniversary to have fun, etc.
What did you guys do? Did any of you have it preserved but then wore it again? If you did, what did you decide to do after the fact? Is preservation worth it (now or later)?
