Ashley’s Wedding Dress Preservation in Connecticut

Ashley’s Wedding Dress Preservation in Connecticut

For her destination wedding in Mexico, Ashley matched a gorgeous gown from Allure Bridal with her mother-in-law’s heirloom veil. Ashley was not mistaken when she entrusted Orange Restoration Labs with the vintage accessory: Sally restored her bridal veil to its previous glory, erasing any discernible trace of the near four-decade long difference between the veil and the dress. See more stunning photographs from her wedding and read Ashley’s side of the story below!

What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
Saying “I do.” But there was nothing I would change.

Why did you want to get your gown cleaned and preserved?
Sally of Orange Restoration Labs did an absolutely amazing job on my mother-in-law’s almost 40-year-old veil. My mother- & father-in-law didn’t even believe it was the same veil because of how brand new it looked. I hope to one day pass the veil and dress down to my future daughter or daughter-in-law.

Why did you decide to get your gown cleaned by a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists?
Sally received amazing reviews and luckily for me she is not too far from where I live. I would recommend everyone I know (and even strangers) to see Sally for any of their wedding gown needs.
