Using a sheet is the easiest (also really cheap) way to keep the bottom of the dress clean. The bride can even have a waiting area on the sheet, while the photographer is taking shots of the wedding party. But remember to bring a sheet to put under your dress, make sure it matches the colour of the dress.

Can you take pictures when trying on wedding dresses?
The place I bought my dress wouldn’ t allow photos if just trying on. If you found your dress and bought it, they let you take photos. I took it that they didn’t want you to try on a dress, take photos, then try and find it elsewhere cheaper. I’ve heard of many bridal shops not allowing pictures.
Will my wedding dress get dirty?
Some brides have a very difficult time with the idea that their beautiful white dress might get a bit dirty. The insides of the white hems and the inside of the train do tend to pick up dust, dirt and grass stains depending on where the couple is walking and how much.
Soak: After washing my bathtub to decontaminate it, I filled my bathtub with cold water and submerged the bottom of my dress in a mix of Vanish stain powder (kind of like Oxi Clean powder) and gentle liquid detergent (Genie Express-Gel from above). I let the dress hang with the bottom soaking overnight.
