Money Well Spent

Let me tell you what, I did quite a bit of research trying to find the best place to clean and preserve my wedding dress. Heritage was the only place that I found that preserved dresses like museums would preserve Victorian gowns. I was very pleased with their customer service. I had an address change during the process of preserving my dress, and they handled the change in shipping information very well. When I received my dress, I was almost in tears. I was so happy with my results. My dress looked brand-new again! My hemline had quite a bit of staining from walking on asphalt for pictures downtown, but there is no evidence of any of it! They even included an acid-free insert to include a wedding photo and your love story! What a lovely touch. I highly recommend using Heritage for cleaning and preserving your gown! You will not regret it! Money well spent!

Perfect Process

Heritage did a 5 star job. The whole process was flawless. I felt at ease from the beginning because they keep you informed along the way. Very professionally run business. The cleaning job was perfect. Even the packaging showed how much care the company took with my daughter's wedding gown. I could not have been happier with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Heritage.

Awesome Company!

Heritage is an excellent company! My wedding was out side and the hem of my dress was very dirty. I was super nervous that the stains wouldn't come out. I was also weary to ship my dress across the country for services. However, Heritage was the best choice I could have made. The employees were friendly and easy to work with. The cleaning services were fantastic and turn around was super quick. My dress came back completely spotless! I am so glad I chose Heritage!
