With Spring in the air and Wedding season almost upon us, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the benefits of cleaning and preserving a Wedding Gown following your big day.
Few things in life will create such vivid and precious memories for the bride as her Wedding Dress. Despite the massive investment, sentimental value and delicate nature of these garments, they typically receive very harsh treatment over the course of a wedding day. From the bottom of the dress dragging along the aisle, tearing up the dance floor, spilling champagne and wedding cakes to your little niece and nephews using the dress as a slide, the list really is endless. Typically your pure white and beautiful gown looks like it has seen a variation of the apocalypse or at the very least a few obstacles in a tough mudder event.
So with that being said, what are your options following the big day to clean and preserve your Wedding gown for years to come, cherish the memories and create a family heirloom for future generations to wear? Let’s outline the benefits of our Wedding gown cleaning and preservation service.

Enjoying the perfect wedding is usually over the span of a few days, but the “hangover” literally and figuratively can last for many weeks.
