The only thing possibly worse than finding a stain on your wedding dress is finding a pull in the fabric of your gown which resulted from the events on your wedding day. Throughout your wedding day there are many unfortunate events that could cause the material of your dress to become damaged. A fabric tear on the hemline caused by a misstep as you step out of the limo, loose threads in the shoulder area from a good time on the dance floor, or a thread that was pulled by a spur in the back of your chair as you dined at the head table. All have the potential to cause stress on the delicate fabrics of your wedding gown, and worse, cause stress and worry for a bride that loves her dress.
