What is wedding gown preservation?

This is a process done by a specialist company which typically includes carefully cleaning the garment first, ridding it of stains, where possible, repairing any damage and then, finally, using a specially approved process the gown is pressed or steamed and carefully folded and boxed in an acid-free setting which preserves and protects the garment from outside sources of damage.

Why do I need to preserve my gown?

Traditional dry cleaning often uses harsh chemicals not recommended for delicate garments, fabrics and embellishments. Your wedding dress requires delicate treatments and cleaning to preserve it's color and condition. Storing and/or sealing your dress in plastic or other containers can cause mold, odors and staining. Hanging the dress for extended periods can cause stress to the shoulders and stretching of the fabric. Having your dress professionally cleaned and preserved by specialists ensures that it's being cared for properly during the cleaning process and then preserved and boxed appropriately for storage at home.

How do I choose a gown preservation company?

There are many local and national gown preservation services, so how do you choose one? Just ask...

  1. Do they specialize in wedding gowns and other types of special occasion attire?
  2. How long have they been in business?
  3. Does the company employ eco-friendly processes? Do they use harsh chemicals to clean gowns?
  4. Can the preservation box be opened to inspect the gown?
  5. Do they have a good reputation? Search online for wedding gown preservation reviews.
  6. Do they have a customer service line to call and ask questions? Is the staff knowledgeable and easily accessible?
  7. What is the cost? (Don't let cost be the deciding factor. Cheapest is not always best. Do your homework)
  8. Can other accessories be included? Are there additional costs?
  9. Is insurance included and/or available?
