Wedding Gown Care Before and After Your Wedding
Our Certified Wedding Gown Specialists™ will give you a free consultation and an estimate for the care of your new wedding gown or your vintage wedding gown. If your vintage wedding gown has yellowed, we can restore it to the true color. Or if your wedding gown is a sample or was pre-owned, there is no need to wear a soiled wedding gown because we take every precaution to protect delicate beads, trims, and lace during the cleaning process. Our thoroughness and attention to detail guarantee great results! Click here to find the Specialist near you or call 800-501-5005.
Before Your Wedding Day
We press your wedding gown with meticulous care. Whether we prepare your wedding gown for your wedding day or for shipping to your destination wedding, your wedding gown is stuffed with a bodice form as well as tissue to keep it wrinkle-free. Many of our members offer free pressing for your wedding day as well as free pick-up and delivery.
We know you may worry about cleaning your wedding gown before the wedding. We are Certified Wedding Gown Specialists™, and you can trust us to carefully hand clean your wedding gown with gentle solutions that dissolve the different kinds of stains. Once all stains are dissolved, your wedding gown is rinsed in pure solvent until it is completely clean and ready for pressing.
After Your Wedding Day
Wedding Gown Cleaning
We clean wedding gowns according to standard museum-quality practices plus we take extra steps to be certain all stains, both seen and unseen, are removed because wedding day spills such as soda, wine and cake (many times caused by a guest and unnoticed by you) can dry without leaving a visible mark. These sugary stains, which are not dissolved during ordinary dry cleaning, will caramelize into ugly brown stains.
Wedding Gown Preservation
Turn the memory of your special day into an heirloom with the wedding gown preservation service you can trust–guaranteed! Inspect your wedding gown personally before it is carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an acid-free, archival-quality wedding chest that protects it from exposure to light and air. No chemicals are added, and our preservations are carbon-neutral because we offset all carbon emissions with donations to Carbonfund.org who support reforestation projects. When your gown is to be used again, return it to any member in more than 500 cities around the world, and your wedding gown will be inspected and pressed at no charge.
Selling or Donating Your Wedding Gown
Thinking of selling or donating your wedding gown after the wedding? Featured in newspapers and television such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, CNN and Martha Stewart Weddings, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com is one of the best places to sell your gown online. For a nominal one-time fee (and no commission on the sale), you may list your wedding dress as long as you like.
Or if you would prefer to donate your wedding gown to a charity, consider Wish Upon a Wedding, Brides for a Cause, and Brides Against Breast Cancer.
