Cleaning & Preservation

Is wedding dress cleaning and preservation right for you?

Your beautiful wedding is over and now you’re wondering what to do with your gorgeous wedding gown. You should definitely get your dress cleaned – but where, and should you preserve it, too? We’ve laid out the reasons you might choose wedding gown cleaning versus wedding dress cleaning AND preservation.

(And, yes! We do help brides clean and preserve their gowns even if you did not purchase your gown with us.)

Wedding Dress Cleaning is Right For You If…

  • You want to sell your gown
  • Someone else in your family is going to use your gown in the next year or so
  • You want to turn your gown into a Christening gown, pillow, etc.
  • You want to donate your gown

Wedding Gown Preservation is Right for You If…

  • You want to keep your gown as a keepsake
  • You want to preserve your gown for someone in your family to wear years from now
  • You want to preserve your gown so pieces of it can be used years from now for veils, headpieces, new gowns, etc.

About Wedding Dress Cleaning & Preservation

Now that your wedding is over and you’re back from your honeymoon, we want to make sure that your wedding gown is preserved exactly as you would like, so you can enjoy your wedding dress for years to come!

For the best wedding dress cleaning results, we do recommend that your wedding gown is cleaned within 2 months of the wedding, but we have lots of brides come to us a year, two, or even 5-10 years down the road who want to clean and preserve their special gowns.
