Questions & Answers

How do you clean my gown?

Our certified wedding gown cleaning profession carefully cleans every gown according to the type of fabric it is made from.  Your gown is clened individually and never with any other garments.

We clean all on site here in Vancouver.  We never ship out your gown like most dry cleaners do.

What is Wedding Gown Preservation?

After your gown has been cleaned and inspected, it will be carefully packaged in 100% acid-free tissue in a museum quality wedding chest that will protect your gown from air and light, which will cause unprotected gowns to yellow.

Our Wedding Gown Preservation service is backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Is your  Gown Preservation Chest Different that others?

Our special Museum Care™ wedding chest is 100% Acid Free (not just PH Neutral).  Ordinary boxes and tissue are heavy in acit, which damages fabric by yellowing and may leave dark brown burn streaks wherever the fabric touches the box.

We DO NOT vacuum pack our gowns and seal the box.  Fabric needs to breathe.

Can I see my gown when it is in the wedding chest?

Yes, you can see your gown through an oval window made of a special polypropylene, an inert plastic that will not yellow or damage your gown.

 What else can I preserve with my gown?

Such things as a headpiece and veil, petticoat, gloves, garter and handkerchief may be stored with your gown.  Shoes should not be stored with the gown because fumes from the leather and glue could cause damage.

What if I open the chest and take out my gown?

This is not a problem.  You should were the archival gloves (which we provide you) and we are happy to help you repack the gown in your preservation chest.  If you wear it and if it is soiled, it should be re-cleaned and  again properly preserved.
