Product Care/Maintenance

How do I care for my HC piece(s)?

Due to the delicate nature of our pieces we encourage brides to take extra care in the handling & storing of their Hushed Commotion accessories post wedding day so that they can be worn at other occasions or passed down.

Upon receiving your piece(s):

 - Veils + sashes may arrive with slight creases; please do not apply
   direct heat onto pieces. Use an iron or steamer to lightly steam piece(s).
 - For birdcage veils, applying non-direct steam will help the veil regain
   its shape after shipping.

We suggest the follow care to keep your Hushed Commotion Accessories
in the best condition possible:

-  Please carefully shield your accessories from hair spray, chemicals and make up. Hair spray leaves a sticky film that attracts and holds onto dirt and is difficult and sometimes impossible to clean off. Chemicals and cleaning supplies can damage the finish on your HC piece permanently. If you need to clean your accessory piece, clean/dust items off with a soft dry cloth.

-  Remove belts from Wedding Dress before sending to the dry cleaner.
   The removal of sashes before dry cleaning is crucial because sashes are not meant to be dry cleaned & if they are, the belt may be permanently damaged & beads will be lost.

-  Store pieces in original packaging or in storage packaging that is cotton & breathable. Keep pieces in cool, dark places without humidity and away from the sun. Storing in exposure to sunlight, heat, & humidity will limit the life span of your item.

Sterling Silver Care:

If you begin to notice a yellowish hue on sterling silver items, you can
remove this tarnish using a jewelry polishing cloth. Please don’t put water onto the cloth. It only works dry. Do Not use the polishing cloth on pieces that aren't sterling.
