Shawn’s Wedding Gown Preservation in California
Stunning bride Shawn knew her dress was the One before she even got a chance to see it in person! For more about her wedding and her experience at GreenStreets Cleaners, continue to our Q&A below:
When was your wedding date and where was it held?
It was held April 2nd, 2016, at the Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells, California.
Who is the designer of your gown and where did you purchase it?
Nicole Miller, purchased at Flares Bridal in Walnut Creek.
When did you know that your gown was “the one”?
I’d seen pics of my dress from fashion week photos when Nicole Miller debuted her spring 2016 line last fall and I really took a liking to it. I tried on other dresses, but kept thinking about that dress I had seen online. I couldn’t try it on for several months because the spring dresses weren’t available until the next season. I researched upcoming Nicole Miller trunk shows in the hopes of seeing it in person and luckily, Flares had one and that dress was to be one of the samples included. Once I tried it on I immediately knew it was going home with me.
What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle. I felt so excited for the moment to finally be there and also catching glimpses on my favorite people looking on. It was a very happy walk.
Why did you want to get your gown cleaned and preserved?
I have such happy memories in my wedding dress that I will remember for a lifetime! I want to hold on to it and try to keep it in the best condition possible for those moments when I want to bring it out of my closet again.
Why did you decide to get your gown cleaned by a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists?
I knew I wouldn’t be able to find a trustworthy cleaner who could take better care of my dress as an Association of Wedding Gown Specialists member. Having that confidence while handing over such a prized possession is priceless.
