Amanda’s Wedding Gown Preservation in Florida
Real bride Amanda had her absolutely breathtaking nuptial ceremony held in Ravello, Italy. The stunning location came, perhaps, second only to Amanda’s gown, which was an exquisite Martina Liana creation. Clare at Oceanside Cleaners ensured that the garment was properly cleaned and preserved following the joyous celebrations. Read on for more about Amanda’s wedding day!
When was your wedding date?
What was your wedding location and venue name?
Ravello, Italy, at the Belmond Caruso.
Who is the designer of your gown and where did you purchase it?
Martina Liana and I purchased it at Bridal Boutique in Lewisville, TX.
When did you know that your gown was “the one”?
It was the first and only time I had tried on dresses — I went with my soon-to-be mother in law. I probably tried on 6-7 dresses and the last dress I put on was the one. As my mother in law will tell you, while I was putting it on in the dressing room, I said “WOW”. And I had all the feels that went along with it. 🙂
What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle to my soon-to-be husband, it was so many emotions at one time!
Why did you want to get your gown cleaned and preserved?
I wasn’t sure why I wanted to get the dress preserved. But after speaking with Clare at Oceanside Cleaners I realized how important my dress was to me! Even if I don’t have a daughter–or one that ultimately doesn’t want to wear it–at least the gown will always be there as an option.
What made your wedding ceremony feel extra special?
Both of my parents passed away before I was married, but I had a picture of the two of them on their wedding day attached to my bouquet. My “something blue” was also very special, namely the location and date of our wedding stitched in blue to the inside of my dress.
Why did you decide to get your gown cleaned by a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists?
I did a lot of research and saw so many good reviews. I also heard great things from a few other brides.
