Clean a vintage wedding dress?

Hi Everyone,

I've found a beautiful vintage wedding gown online. It's from 1961 and made of silk and tulle with some beading. I love the vintage look and don't mind if the dress has some yellowing (actually, I think that adds to the charm!). The sellar does recommend the dress be cleaned before wearing. Does anybody know if there would be danger of the  dress falling apart or getting seriously damaged if I had it cleaned? Also, it's been stored in a garment bag in a non-smoking home since '61. 

Thanks!
