Wedding Dress Cleaning

Early Cleaning

Its important to get your gown cleaned as soon as possible after the the big day.  The longer you wait, the more likely that stains or marks on your beautiful gown will not be removable.

Unfortunately, stains can show up later even if your gown does not appear stained now.

See details of how we clean dresses on our Restoration Page.

Wedding Dress Preservation is all about keeping your gown good for years to come, after its cleaned – stopping discolouration etc.  This is achieved through a specially designed acid-free wedding dress box.

The Right Storage Box

Preserving your wedding gown is all about finding the right storage type.

  1. Dry Cleaners Plastic  Not suitable for more than 6 months
  2. Hanging in the Wardrobe  Hanging puts strain on the dress seams 
  3. Cardboard Storage Box  Not suitable for more than 18 months
  4. Suitcase Not suitable for more than 18 months
  5. Acid Free Wedding Dress Box  Suitable for Long Term Storage

The biggest concern with most of the items above is that contaminants from the storage type will impact your bridal gown.  As your gown is both white and delicate, it is susceptible to yellowing, ageing, moths, other bugs etc.  Years of experience has taught us that there is nothing better to store your wedding dress than a good box. 

For long term storage, there is no doubt that the very best solution is a purpose made acid and lignan free wedding dress box.

Be aware – not all Bridal Gown Boxes are created equal!

The standard wedding dress boxes we use are acid free and are specifically made for the storage of bridal gowns. 

We also provide upgrade options to beautiful handmade boxes we source from the UK (see our handmade boxes page) and boxes with windows, as shown on this page, which we source from the USA (+€50 Upgrade).
