Wedding Gown Preservation

Preserve the moment

Preservation is the cleaning and packaging of your treasured wedding gown using's 4-step process and following our storage guidelines to "preserve the moment" for years to come.

  1. Inspection
    First, a picture of your gown is taken. Then, the garment is analyzed for potential problems and current conditions.

    Next, a care method is prescribed for that individual garment based on its condition and the guidelines provided in its care label.

    The gown is then hand-carried through each of the next three steps.
  2. Custom Cleaning
    The gown is individually cleaned as prescribed by the inspection process to remove all soils and contaminants to the best of our ability.

    We have three cleaning systems available for every type of wedding gown made to date.
         • Traditional petroleum solvent.
         • Synthetic solvent
         • The new Enviro-Safe wet cleaning

    Even if the care label in your gown requires spot cleaning, we have skilled technicians using the latest methods to service your priceless wedding gown.
  3. Hand Finishing
    Your gown is then pressed by hand under careful supervision. No machines are used on your delicate wedding dress.
  4. Packaging
    A picture of your gown is taken before it is packaged. This picture is attached to the outside of the package for your peace of mind.

    Then, your gown is wrapped in acid free tissue paper and placed in an acid-free interior box. This box is wrapped in plastic and then placed in an exterior box. The exterior box will be wrapped in plastic for shipping.

Your gown will be shipped via UPS to any street address in the United States you designate. The gown will be insured for the amount you specify as its worth for a small additional charge.

Your gown should be stored at 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit with a humidity level of 55%. You must keep your gown away from excess heat and moisture, as it will affect the dyes, turning the gown yellow over time.

Ideally, you should store your gown in a closet or under a bed. Do not store it in attics or basements.

A pair of white cotton gloves is provided for you to use when you wish to view your gown. The gown must be repackaged exactly as it was taken out. Skipping any one of these steps might damage the gown.

Lifetime Guarantee -- We will reclean your gown at no charge should discoloration of the fabric appear in years to come. No questions asked.

You may return your gown in its original container accompanied by the original invoice at any time. We are happy to redo a gown at no additional charge unless we feel the process will further damage the fabric.

Your gown can be re-used at any time. All you will need is a little touch up pressing by a professional garment finisher.
