Wedding Gown Preservation Service
There are a lot of reasons you may need to clean your wedding gown before you tie the knot. There are always risks involved when cleaning bridal gowns, so if it’s not dirty, don’t clean it. If your dress is dirty, then don’t fret, the chances of something happening to your dress if you choose the right place to clean it are extraordinarily low.
There’s no need to come unraveled if you have a new gown and something happened. We once cleaned a wedding dress after dog peed on a silk wedding gown less than 24 hours before the bride was leaving (it was an out of town affair). We had the dress looking as a good as new just in time. That was an extreme case, but it should illustrate what can be done.
Wedding dress restoration is the art and science of taking an old wedding gown and returning it to a condition that is as close to new as possible. There are a lot of factors that go into a successful restoration, most of them happening before the dress is ever brought in for service. The care and storage of the gown over the years largely determine the final product. Only the best wedding dress dry cleaners will even attempt this process. If the technician is experienced, it is a very safe process.
