Visit the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists to learn more. Check their blog for some inspirational stories shared by brides that restored and altered second or third generation wedding gowns and had them preserved again for yet another generation!
We will gladly give you a free consultation and estimate for the care and cleaning of any fabric, new or vintage. With our MuseumCare™ Preservation you can arrange to inspect your bridal gown or other family heirloom before your true preservation is completed.
Each gown is hand processed individually and every precaution is taken to protect delicate sequins, beads and trims. You can trust us to give your special gown the individual care and attention it deserves.
Spills containing sugar, salt and acid often dry clear and cannot be seen. These latent stains do not dissolve during ordinary dry cleaning and turn an ugly brown over time. Our unique anti-sugar stain treatment ensures that all sugar, salt and acid – seen or unseen – is removed.
Vacuum or plastic seals and other materials can damage wedding gowns. With our MuseumCare™ Preservation your bridal gown is layered with acid-free tissue and carefully folded into an acid-free, museum quality, archival wedding chest.
Your MuseumCare™ Preservation is guaranteed so that when your gown is to be worn again you can return to any participating Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ who will inspect and press the gown at no charge. This guarantee is honored by all members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists in over 500 cities around the world.

Bridal Gown Cleaning and Care Tips
For Very Special Care of Your Very Special Bridal Gown
Always… hang your wedding gown by loops inside the gown that are connected to sturdy side seams, never by fragile shoulder seams that can stretch or sag.
Always… avoid storing your wedding gown in plastic bags or vacuum-sealed, plastic wrapped containers because plastic emits fumes that can yellow your bridal gown and trap moisture that mildews your wedding gown.
Always… ask what precautions the specialist takes to protect delicate trims and decorations on your wedding gown and how the cleaner guards against latent stains on your wedding gown.
Always… choose a specialist who will personally process your bridal gown, never one who sends your bridal gown away to be cleaned.
Always… ask to inspect your wedding gown personally before it is put into the container, which should be a completely acid-free museum quality archival wedding chest lined with fabric or acid-free tissue.
Always… avoid storing your bridal gown in the attic or basement where there are extreme changes in temperature or humidity.
