Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge to preserve my wedding gown?
The price of preservation range dramatically depending on the style and detailing of your gown. Due to the complex construction of some gowns, there may be additional charges.

Please call one our locations closest to you for a price quote.

How do I get my gown to you?
After you make arrangements with our gown preservation specialist, your gown can be dropped off at either of our locations or we can schedule a pick up.

When should I send my gown to you?
As soon after the wedding as possible, as stains cause damage to fabric over time.

How should I store the gown after my wedding?
After the wedding, do not put your gown on a hanger or in a plastic bag. Keep it in a dark, dry place, folded or rolled in a clean white sheet. Hanging is not recommended as it can cause stress to the fabric and create distortion. Do not store your gown in a plastic garment bag because it may yellow the fabric.

How will my dress be stored after preservation?
We seal your gown in a storage box that is constructed with a clear viewing window, is water resistant, and insect proof to ensure a long preserved life.

Can I look at my gown after it is preserved?
Absolutely. In fact, we encourage you to open the box and inspect your gown regularly. Remember that your skin contains oils and salts that can damage delicate fabrics. It is important that you wash and dry your hands carefully before handling your gown. When you remove the gown, slide both hands under the whole gown and lift it out of the box. As you unfold the gown, note the way we packed it so you can re-fold it properly.

Where should I store my wedding gown after it is preserved?
Choose a storage place without much traffic; however we do not suggest storing your gown in an attic or a cellar. Store the box flat, with the lid side facing up.

When you move the box, carry it so that it is as level as possible. We have packed your gown so that it will not shift under normal circumstances, but flat storage will ensure this. Our special preservation storage materials were chosen to protect your dress from exposure to moisture, dust, acidity and light.
