Preserve it with care to bequeath the heirloom ensemble to coming generations. This way, even years later, you can look all special and regal whenever you wish to!

Nifty Washing & Drying
Dry cleaning the bridal lehenga should be your foremost priority as it might have countered a few drinks or food stains when you donned it on the D-day. Invest in trusty dry cleaners and understand the wash care instructions well in advance from the designers to avoid any woes.  

Clever Folds & Iron Techniques

Skilful Archiving
Intricate embroideries and pure fabrics require special care. Archiving the ensemble separately in a sizeable trunk is one solid last step. Store it crisp and safe away from pests. Wrapping it in an unbleached cotton fabric or muslin is a simple and inexpensive way but goes a long way in keeping it well until next time!

Follow easy tips to store your lehenga with care and keep your outfit as good as new.
