What is a preservation? Preservation is not a specific process that is done to the gown; it doesn’t require some sort of special solvent or treatment. Preservation is a professional full cleaning and then proper storage. All of our wedding gowns are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and then stored within a museum-quality preservation box. It is NOT sealed. Garments should be able to breathe.
All of our wedding gown preservations come with a lifetime guarantee backed by both us and the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists. Along with your wedding gown box, you will receive specific instructions on how to keep your gown looking it’s best.
Wedding Dress Preservation Tips
- Don’t procrastinate wedding gown preservation: Ideally cleaning should be done days or no more than 6 weeks following wedding to avoid oxidation over time.
- Don’t leave gown in plastic bag: Most plastic gives off chemical fumes that cause the yellowing of bridal gowns.
- Have your wedding dress cleaned and preserved at the same time: Cleaning followed immediately by preservation ensures that your gown remains in the best condition possible.
