Stephanie’s Wedding Gown Preservation in Alberta, Canada
Bride Stephanie and her husband were married at a private property overlooking the absolutely breathtaking Lake Windermere in Invermere, British Columbia. They met in Invermere 5 years before their wedding, so the location truly has a special meaning for them. Read more about her wedding and fabulous gown preservation experience with Drycleaning by Dave in Alberta, Canada below!
When was your wedding and where did it take place?
We got married on July 26, 2014 in Invermere, British Columbia. Our ceremony was at a private property with incredible views of Lake Windermere and our reception was at Copper Point Resort. Invermere has a special place in our hearts because that’s where we met 5 years ago. Over the years, we’ve created so many memories from all of the times we spent on the lake and at the ski hill, so it made perfect sense to become husband and wife there as well!
When did you know that your wedding gown was “the one”?
I actually ended up buying two gowns, which my family will still not let me live down! I bought my first one at a Henry Roth trunk show in Calgary, but it never felt like “the one”. A week later, my mom and I took a trip to NYC and decided to drop by Kleinfeld Bridal. It was there that I “met” my second gown (also by Henry Roth) and immediately fell in love (and purchased the gown)!
What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
It’s so hard to choose just one favorite memory! But one moment I will never forget is when my husband and I took a minute to look around the room and take everything in. It was the best feeling in the world to see all of our friends and family in one room together having fun and celebrating our wedding with us. It was an overwhelming and once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Why did you want to get your wedding gown cleaned and preserved?
My gown is WAY too beautiful to just leave it to collect dust in the back of my closet. I am incredibly attached to the gown, so can never imagine selling it. I think it would be awesome to wear the gown again one day (perhaps for a vow renewal)!
Why did you decide to bring your gown to a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists?
I knew I wanted to have my gown cleaned and preserved but I didn’t want to just take it to the dry cleaner down the road. I searched the internet for the best wedding gown cleaners in the Alberta area and Drycleaning by Dave kept showing up. I read the reviews and they were all very positive so I knew I needed to take it there! The customer service was excellent–they even picked up and dropped off my gown at my house. I would highly recommend them to any bride in the area!
