Before Your Wedding Day
We press your wedding gown with meticulous care. Whether we prepare your gown for you wedding day, or ship it to your destination wedding, your gowns is prepared with a bodice form as well as tissue to keep it wrinkle free. We also provide free pickup and delivery to local hotels and resorts.
We know you may worry about cleaning your gown before the wedding. We are a Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™, and you can trust us to carefully hand clean your wedding gown with gentle chemicals that dissolve the different kinds of stains. Once all stains are dissolved, your wedding gown is rinsed in pure solvent until it is completely clean and ready for pressing.
After Your Wedding Day
Bridal Gown Cleaning
We clean gowns according to standard museum-quality practices plus we take extra steps to be certain all stains, both seen and unseen, are removed because wedding day spills such as soda, wine and cake (many times caused by a guest and unnoticed by you) can dry without leaving a visible mark. These sugary stains, which are not dissolved during ordinary dry cleaning, will caramelize into ugly brown stains. Bridal Gown Preservation
Turn the memory of your special day into an heirloom with the wedding gown preservation service you can trust–guaranteed! Inspect your gown personally before it is carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an acid-free, archival-quality wedding chest that protects it from exposure to light and air. No chemicals are added, and our preservations are carbon-neutral. When your gown is to be used again, return it to any member in more than 500 cities around the world, and your gown will be inspected and pressed at no charge.
