Preserving Your Gown:
You’ve spent a lot of time, energy, and money looking for your wedding gown; your cherished possession. It will remind you of that special, joyous event in your lives together. Naturally, you want to preserve your gown at its loveliest, as it was on your wedding day. This is best accomplished by having it properly cleaned and prepared, and then preserved in a special acid-free coffer.
It is very important that your Bridal Memory Chest be kept in a cool, dry place. Do not store it in the attic or basement. The attic heat could promote yellowing and the basement dampness can cause mildew. When you wish to inspect your gown, be sure your hands and the surrounding areas are clean.
It’s best to clean and preserve your gown right after the wedding. Over time, stains become more difficult to remove. The sooner it’s properly cleaned and preserved, the better results you’ll have. Unprotected, it will fade and yellow, and eventually, it can deteriorate, and become brittle in spots.
One thing you can do is to make arrangements before the wedding. Plan to have someone (mom, friend, maid of honor, …or us) bring in your gown right after the wedding. Or, if that’s not possible, we can arrange to have a carton labeled and ready for mail service pick-up. Where will you have your bridal gown cleaned and preserved? Come in and meet us, we’re always happy to show you around and explain our procedures.
