One of the main problems brides run into when they don’t preserve their dresses is discoloration.  The fabric can yellow over time, making your gown look dirty and dingy.  Leaving it hanging in a closet also weighs it down and can stretch it out in ways that are irreparable.  Preserving your gown provides it with a place to store it safely so that it maintains its shape and is as pristine in color as the day you walked down the aisle!  Even things you may not think of like deodorant and perfume can cause damage to your dress over the years if you don’t have it cleaned and preserved properly.  

The night of your wedding is often a blur, you’re partying, entertaining guests, and running around your venue.  Spills and bumping into things are bound to happen!  Before storing your dress it’s important to have it cleaned the right way to reduce any visibility of stains and get rid of anything that could cause more damage that will stain and even deteriorate your dress.

Another great reason to preserve your dress is to potentially give it to someone else or even loan it.  Whether you have a child of your own you hope to pass it down to one day or just a friend or family member that loved your gown, having the option is important!  

Our process is simple and effective.  We will pick up your gown right after your wedding anywhere on Long Island.  Then, we’ll clean and preserve it and deliver it back as soon as it’s done!  We seal gowns in an acid-free inner box that controls humidity.  Inert gas replaces any oxygen in the box so that oxidation becomes impossible.  You’re still able to see your gown and veil through the inner box any time, which is placed in a storage chest for ultimate safety!
