We clean your wedding gown according to standard museum-quality practices, and you may arrange to inspect your bridal gown personally before it is carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an acid-free, archival-quality wedding gown chest. You will find wedding gown care labels with our information in many wedding gowns, and more than seventy designers recommend us. Also, our wedding gown preservations and wedding gown restorations have been tested and are Endorsed by the Association of Bridal Consultants.  We are also a David Tutera Approved Vendor.

Our Commitment to the Lasting Beauty of Your Bridal Gown

Each member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists honors the written international guarantee of every other Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™. Return your bridal gown preservation to any one of our members in more than 500 cities around the world, and your gown will be inspected and pressed at no charge.

Our Commitment to the Environment

Some cleaning solvents are thought to be more friendly to the environment than others. However, any cleaning process, no matter what solvent is used, generates carbon emissions. We offset all carbon emissions that result from the process of cleaning and preserving your wedding gown including your travel to and from the Specialist near you, the cleaning procedures, and the manufacture of your wedding gown preservation chest with our donation to Carbonfund.org. We are the first in the industry to offer truly green wedding gown preservations.

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 TimesCNN 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 can list your wedding dress until it sells.

 Or if you would prefer to donate your wedding gown, in the US and Canda consider Fairy Tale Brides or The Bridal Garden for the education for disadvantaged children.  In Australia, you can donate to the Angel Gown Program or the Salvation Army.  Brides Across America accepts cash donations to fund the purchase of wedding gowns for military brides.
