Wedding Gown Preservation

The wedding’s over, and likely the most expensive item of clothing you’ve ever bought is hanging in your closet. Because you want your wedding day memories to last forever, it's only fair to give your gown a happily-ever-after too, right? Whether for sentimental reasons or the possibility of passing it down to your daughter in the future, preserving your wedding dress is the best way to maintain its color, fabric and shape.

Our multi-step approach ensures lasting protection:

  • Detailed Inspection and repairs by one of our gown specialists
  • Hand-Cleaning
  • Anti-Sugar treatment
  • Layering your gown with acid-free tissue
  • Wrapping it in freshly laundered muslin
  • Folding your gown into an acid-free, museum-quality, archival wedding chest
  • Sealing the chest with a pest-proof tape that still allows the fabric of your gown to breathe

International Guarantee

Finally, you'll have complete confidence in the lasting preservation of your gown by receiving a written, lifetime guarantee against yellowing or caramelized sugar stains on the gown, honored by the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists. Shores Fine Dry Cleaning is proud to be the only facility in Greensboro, High Point, Winston Salem, and the rest of the Triad offering this warranty.

Safeguarding the Planet While Preserving Your Gown

Concerned about the carbon footprint that preserving your gown may leave? We are too! That’s why Shores Fine Dry Cleaning offers ZeroCarbon™ gown preservations.

The Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, in working with Carbonfund.org, has calculated the carbon footprint associated with the process of cleaning and preserving your wedding gown. We can account for the carbon footprint associated with your gown’s preservation with a donation to Carbonfund.org. One hundred percent of this donation will support global renewable energy, energy efficiency and projects that reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
