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.

Wedding Dress Preservation: A Multi-step Approach with 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
