Your wedding dress is a symbol of your marriage and a way to remember your special day forever. There are countless reasons why you might want to preserve your wedding dress.

At Oak Neck Cleaners, we are professionally trained to preserve wedding dresses. We understand just how much your wedding dress means to you, which is why we are dedicated to preserving your dress with as much care as possible. We have newly designed museum-style storage boxes designed to keep out moisture and control oxygen, allowing your dress to stay clean and in top-quality conditions for years. With these boxes, your dress won’t yellow over time. Rather, it will maintain its vivid white color and look as good as it did the day you walked down the aisle.

The first step of the wedding dress preservation process at Oak Neck Cleaners is cleaning the dress. We make sure to get rid of any dirt or stains, while also maintaining the incredible quality of your gown. Then, we seal your dress in an acid-free inner box, which controls humidity. Next, the oxygen is purged from the box and replaced with an inert gas. This gas makes oxidation virtually impossible. If you want to look at your dress, no worries. These boxes allow you to view your gown and veil whenever you want, while also protecting from insect damage, mildew, mold, and oxidation. For the most comprehensive safety possible, the inner box we store your dress in is then stored in a durable, long-term storage chest.

Wedding dress preservation is an excellent way to not only clean your dress but make sure it lasts forever. With preservation, you aren’t just hanging up your dress on a hanger in your closet to collect dust, oxidize, and maybe even suffer from insect damage. Rather, we are preserving your dress in a high-quality box. Additionally, we’re cleaning your dress before we store it in the box, meaning we’re getting rid of those tough stains you may not even notice. White wine stains dry clear and while sugar is white in color, it turns brown over time. If you don’t preserve your dress, these stains may ruin your dress.
