Wedding Dress Cleaning, Preservation and Storage
The big day is over and now you want to preserve your wedding dress. Who knows, maybe you’ll have a daughter or granddaughter who will one day want to wear this very gown. In order to keep it in pristine condition you’ll need to take steps as soon after the wedding as possible to preserve the dress.
Why Wedding Gown Preservation
If you don’t preserve your wedding gown, then any stain that may have occurred (even water) can permanently harm your dress.
Do I need wedding dress cleaning?
Yes, without dry cleaning and preservation, your gown will yellow, and it may become musty or mildew. It can even attract moths and develop tiny moth holes in the fabric. In order for this to be a true keepsake, you want to attend to this task quickly. We can clean and preserve your wedding gown for you.
Prior to giving the gown to us, you will want to inspect the gown for stains, dirt, holes, loose buttons, or ornamentations that were glued onto the dress rather than sewn on. Anything glued on will probably come loose during the cleaning of the dress. If you’re handy with a needle (or we can do this), you can tack any buttons or ornaments that have come loose yourself, but I heartily suggest that you leave any stain removal to us. We know how to attend to stains prior to the preservation process.
Wedding Dress Dry Cleaning
Once you have made note of everything that needs attention, bring the gown to us and tell us that you want the wedding dress cleaned and preserved. We will include acid-free tissue wrapping, and a large box in which to keep your dress.
When the dress is returned, check it over once to make sure that everything has been attended to and you are satisfied. Then rewrap the dress and place it in the box in a temperate area. Never leave this heirloom in a damp unheated storage space, nor in an overly hot attic. Both extremes will eventually destroy the dress.
