Gown Cleaning & Preservation
Your bridal gown is a significant investment, so let us help you protect that investment. From toasts and cake cutting to outdoor photos and an evening on the dance floor, your gown will inevitably face some damage on your wedding day. For this reason, we strongly encourage our brides to clean and preserve their wedding gowns. Cleaning and preserving your gown is a small fraction of the cost of the gown but provides you with the opportunity to use it again for your daughter or granddaughter someday.
Cleaning wedding gowns is a different process than regular dry cleaning. Just like there are a variety of different gowns, there are a variety of cleaning methods. At Pressto, your gown is thoroughly inspected by a dedicated gown specialist. During the first step of the process, your gown is photographed and inspected for any potential issues, necessary repairs, and evaluated for the best cleaning method. It is then handed off to the cleaning department and cleaned according to the best method for the gown. Before cleaning, the cleaning department will test the fabric, beads, and/or embellishments to ensure a safe cleaning. After cleaning, the gown is thoroughly inspected again and re-cleaned if necessary. Once approved by our Inspection Dept, the gown goes to finishing where it is made to look like the day of your wedding and then preserved for the next lucky bride.
We also offer cleaning and preservation services for bridesmaids, flower girl, mother of the occasion, as well as for veils and other headpieces.
