Dyeing a Wedding Dress Red

I want to dye my ivory wedding dress red. Is there a business that does this professionally or should I attempt to do this myself? What is the best dye to use?

It depends on what your dress is made of. I use Rit dye for most of my dying but if it's a certain type of silk or satin, I'd have a pro take a look.

Wedding dresses are very expensive and you risk the chance of destroying your expensive dress before the wedding. I have been reading up on a new fad called dip dyed wedding dresses. Some of the dip dyed dresses are so beautiful.

If you have your heart set on a red wedding dress for your wedding day I'd suggest contacting a company who specializes in dying wedding dresses.

Use Rit dye, is the best. Remember dying does not always turn out the way you want. I do not know what area you are in to recommend someone professional. Check with your dry cleaners in your area.

Use boiling hot water. Put your dye in the water. Mix well first. Add a cup of salt to water and stir. Only use if your dress is cotton, linen, rayon or any other plant-based fiber.

If the dress is silk, add 1 cup of vinegar to the mix and stir well. Leave it to soak in the dye quite a few hours. You could even add a couple boxes of Rit dye.

You can definitely do this yourself. There is a website called newdressaday.com. The author transforms thrift store finds into beautiful clothing. Recently she did a month of wedding dresses, and many of them were dyed. She gives pictures and very clear instructions
