Our Wedding Dress Cleaning and Preservation Process

1. Custom Treatment For Every Wedding Dress Cleaning and Preservation

Your wedding gown will be carefully inspected and an individualized treatment plan will be determined based on your wedding gown fabric, trims and style. Our goal is to return your gown to perfect condition. Our wedding gown care experts will determine the best method of cleaning for your gown to protect it from damage while still getting the stains out.

2. Wedding Dress Cleaning

We give your wedding dress TLC (tender loving care.) Unlike wholesale dry-cleaners and many national companies who clean wedding gowns in large quantity (as many as 30 gowns at a time), each wedding gown we treat gets individual care. Most wedding dresses are hand cleaned while some are spot cleaned or dry-cleaned in virgin solvent. We often utilize more than one method of wedding gown cleaning (combining dry-cleaning with spot cleaning, for instance.) We are not satisfied until we are certain every stain that can be removed is removed.

3. Hand Pressed To Perfection

Next, our gown care experts will hand press your wedding gown. Many companies will lightly steam your dress, but we have found the hand pressing does a much better job. Beads and sequins are very safe with our careful pressing.

4. Your Dress Can Be Repaired

It happens, a snag, a loose button, or worse! Your beautiful wedding dress can sustain some damage on your wedding day. Don’t worry, our expert seamstresses can repair your wedding gown before it is preserved. Heritage Couture™ packages include up to 3 hours of repairs. Repairs are also available for for Heritage Select™ orders for an additional charge.

5. Museum Quality Wedding Dress Preservation

We will preserve your wedding gown to Museum quality standards. Choose between Museum Method™ or Heritage Box™ wedding gown preservation. Both methods utilize the finest, acid-free and lignin free materials. If you do your research, you may find that many wedding gown preservation boxes used by your local dry cleaners are not acid-free, and many that are acid-free are not lignin free. This will damage your wedding gown, as lignin will break down over time, and then the acid-free box is no longer acid-free. So we insist on all of our preservation materials being both acid-free and lignin free.

6. Safe Secure Shipping

We utilize Signature Delivery for all wedding dress cleaning and preservation shipments. We sign for it when it arrives here and it must be signed for when returned to you. Your treasured wedding gown is never left on a door step. You will receive an email with a FedEX tracking number and estimated delivery date when your wedding gown ships.

7. Wedding Dress Preservation Warranty

You will enjoy peace of mind knowing that we stand behind our preservation processes. Our Heritage Select™ preservation offers a 30 year warranty against yellowing. Heritage Couture™ preservation offers a Get your wedding dress cleaning and preservation quote

Personalized Service

Oct 17, 2014 by Cate

This company provided very personalized service. You can schedule your services online, and you can talk to someone at the shop who will step you through the entire process. They provide updates on the status of your gown preservation through email, which was very helpful. When the gown arrived at my home, it was beautifully presented in its box, wrapped in linen, and they even provide a pair of white gloves for you to use when handling the gown! I highly recommend Heritage Garment Preservation to take care of your wedding gown.

Two years later and still Beautiful!

I definitely recommend this service for any wedding dress. My dress was homemade, made from old cotton table runners and table clothes. I used the "Heritage" Garment Preservation to preserve my wedding dress. We have been married two years and my dress still looks just as amazing now as it did on my special day! And that is saying something! Because for the cake cutting my husband and I basically threw cake at each other. The cake got all over the front and inside of my dress. "Heritage Garment Preservation" was able to remove all the stains and smudges along with makeup, pollen from my bouquet, and smudges from dirty hands from my dress. It wasn't harmed and still looks beautiful. Thank You!!!

24 Year Old Wedding Gown Looks Like New Again

Oct 14, 2014 by Cindy

My husband and I are renewing our vows on our 25th Wedding Anniversary which is next summer. I decided that it would be nice to wear my original wedding dress for the renewal with a few alterations to modernize it. After years of incorrectly storing my dress in a brown cardboard box wrapped in cellophane, I was dismayed to find that it had many yellow and brown stains. After looking at the Heritage Garment Preservation website and reading the reviews I decided to send my dress all the way from Canada to California in the hopes that they could restore my dress to white again. I just received it back today and I am overjoyed at how good it looks. All the stains are gone and it looks like new again. Thank you to everyone who worked on it. You truly did a fantastic job!!!

Nothing to be nervous about

Oct 07, 2014 by Sammie

My talented mother-in-law graciously made my wedding gown which made it all the more special to me. I did a good deal of research before I finally settled on Heritage Garment Preservation to clean and preserve my gown. Despite the research, I was still a little hesitant to send something so precious to me, through the mail and to a company I had found online. It turns out that I had absolutely nothing to be nervous about! My gown was treated with the utmost care and was safely returned to me in top quality bag. I appreciate how Heritage Garment emails you updates about how the process is going with your dress; it certainly helped my nerves. I also loved how patient they were with my questions and concerns. Top notch customer service and a beautiful end result!
