I Found My Wedding Dress In My Mother’s Closet

Many brides do not plan beyond their wedding day what they will do with their wedding dress.  All the trips to bridal shops, all the trying-ons, the comparing, the consulting, the researching, the altering and the adoring of their precious wedding gown comes to a momentary hold after changing into their “I’m-going-away-to-my-honeymoon” attire. She may have changed in the room of the hotel where the reception was held, or in her own room at her parent’s place, leaving maid of honor, mom or someone else to pack and take care of her gown. After the honeymoon is over, she may ask...

Does Your Wedding Dress Smell?

Does Your Wedding Dress Smell?

You’ve smelled it before. You picked up your dry-cleaning and noticed that “dry-clean smell.” You may assume that is normal, but you certainly don’t want to find that aroma on any of your clothes, but especially your wedding gown. Is it possible to find a cleaner who can prevent that? It is. For best results, find a dry-cleaner who uses virgin solvent for cleaning wedding gowns. Because of ecological regulations and expense, solvents are recycled.   All dry cleaning machines will filter out much of dirt and soaps from load to load. Impurities  that are...

Restore – Restyle – Reuse

Restore – Restyle – Reuse

There’s more than one reason to wear a vintage, heirloom dress! But certainly most people do so for the sentimental value the dress has. We recently restored and restyled this lovely communion gown to be used for a third generation. After restoring the color, we needed to find a way to bring it into the 21st century. The hemline was let down to add length to the gown, but unfortunately we couldn’t press out the permanent fold line left behind. So we covered the hemline with some trim instead. Darling! Still wanting to add some more length, we found some similar nylon organza and...

Get the Facts on Wholesale Wedding Gown Care

Behind just about every dry cleaner’s counter are a number of preservation boxes with wedding gowns inside. But that does not mean that the wedding gown was cleaned at that shop.  In fact, many local dry-cleaners do not clean and preserve wedding gowns in their own shop, but choose to send their customer’s bridal gowns out to wholesale dry-cleaners. Wholesale dry-cleaners provide a service for local cleaners who don’t want to worry about damaging those expensive wedding gowns, or taking all of the the space in their dry-cleaning machines.  Some wholesale cleaners...

Which Bridal Gown Preservation Method is Best?

Posted by on Sep 20, 2019 in General, Wedding Gown Preservation | 2 comments

Which Bridal Gown Preservation Method  is Best?

One question our customers frequently ask is “Which method of wedding gown preservation is best – hanging or box?” Our standard answer is “Hanging preservation” if you have closet space. This answer comes from understanding the goals of wedding dress preservation. The word “preservation” can be confusing. For instance, one definition common in the English language is the term used for the preservation of food. To preserve a can of peaches the oxygen is removed allowing the fruit to be edible for much longer. But “preservation” is also the word used to describe the efforts...

Museum Method™ Strapless Gown Preservation

Museum Method™ Strapless Gown Preservation

A question we are often asked is how do we preserve strapless wedding gowns with Museum Method™ (hanging) wedding gown preservation? Or what about a gown with thin spaghetti straps, or straps made of delicate fabric? Are those small straps supposed to bare the weight of the whole wedding gown? Excellent questions… Gravity – it’s very useful for keeping us all on the ground, but not very helpful for storing textiles. If you are like most people, you have probably had a sweater or two ruined by hanging on wire hangers. Which is why you now always hang sweaters from...
