My dress is organza and I'm not so worried about it being 'trashed' as I would get it cleaned when we get home anyways. What's everyone else's experience with their dresses materials in the water and sand?
Hi! My dress had a chiffon overlay on top of satin (and a bit of crinoline). It was TOTALLY fine. We did ours on the beach, then rinsed off really well in one of the beach showers, wearing the dress, then went in the pool for underwater shots. After, we filled our hotel jacuzzi tub, put the dress in, and kind of swished it back and forth, just to rinse off the chlorine mostly. Then we hung it in the shower to dry. Like everyone says, it looks cleaner than it did after the wedding.
I am wearing it for our AHR this Saturday, and then I will have it cleaned and put away.
So I do not know about organza, but my materials were absolutely fine.
