Modern bridal Lehenga Choli come in various styles,materials, colors and prices. But no matter what they look like, they all have one thing in common: the bride's sentimental attachment. These Lehenga require special handling for cleaning and storage process. Here are some handy tips for preserving and storing your wedding Lenghas.

  1. The fabric used in making the Lehnga is net, crepe, velvet and tissue silk. Also in order to give a rich and royal look various ornamental embellishments are done like embroidery, pita, gota, applique, kasab, antique kundan etc.Such designer and expensive Lehengas should washed or dry-cleaned only by a professional.Once the dress is cleaned and pressed, it is ready to be stored permanently.
  2. The best storage method to store the Lehenga is to wrap it in acid-free (made without alum) tissue or muslin and place it in an acid-free archival box or bag.Add some silica gel crystals to absorb the humidity out of the air.
  3. Since a Lehenga has beading, seed pearls, sequins, rhinestones, or anything that might be heavy sewn to the dress, it must be stored flat and never on a hanger so that the weight of the trim doesn't tear the material. 
  4.  Lehenga should be stored in a cool, dry area away from fluorescent light. Ultraviolet light will destroy silk very fast.
  5.  Bridal Lehengas should not be stored in the attic, garage or basement because of extreme temperature and humidity changes.
  6.  Avoid storing in wooden dressers  because the wood gives off gasses and is highly acidic, which affects the dress.
