Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my gown to you?
After you make arrangements with our gown preservation specialist, your gown can be dropped off during regular business hours.
When should I send my gown to you?
As soon after the wedding as possible. Stains cause damage to fabric over time.
How much do you charge to preserve my wedding
The price of gown preservation ranges depending on the style and the detail on your gown. Due to the complex construction of some gowns, there may be additional charges.
Can I look at my gown after it is preserved?
Definitely. In fact, we encourage you to open the box and inspect your gown regularly. Remember, your skin contains oils and salts that can damage the delicate fabrics of your gown. It is very important that you wash & dry your hands carefully before handling your gown. When you remove the gown, slide both hands under the entire gown and lift it out of the box. As you unfold the gown, take note on how we packed it so you can re-fold it properly.
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. You should keep it in a dark and dry place, folded or rolled in a clean white sheet. Hanging is not recommended, 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?
To ensure a long preserved life, we seal your gown in a storage box that is constructed with acid-free cardboard and lined with acid-free tissue paper and features a clear viewing window.
Where should I store my wedding gown after it is
For the best results, we recommend storing the storage box that contains your preserved wedding gown in a dry, climate controlled environment. Store the box flat, with the lid side facing up, ideally off the ground and without direct sunlight or much traffic. We recommend you DO NOT store your gown in an attic or a cellar, or in any other environment that is NOT free of moisture and insects.
Whenever you move your gown 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, and flat storage will ensure this. Our special preservation storage materials were chosen to protect your dress from exposure to moisture, dust, acidity and light.
