You Can Trust Wedding Dress Cleaning Vancouver by Tuesdays Fine Dry Cleaning

 

We specialize in bridal gown cleaning and wedding dress preservation. Tuesdays Fine Dry Cleaning has been providing our cleaning services to brides since 1970 at our location in the Kitsilano neighborhood of Vancouver, BC.

In 1995 we were invited to join the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists an international organization, because they knew of our high quality standards in providing Wedding Gown Alterations, Cleaning, Preservation and Restoration of Vintage Gowns.  We are the only company in British Columbia that is authorized to offer a Lifetime Guarantee against yellowing and sugar stains. This guaranty is honored at over 500 locations in the US, Canada, Australia and Mexico.

               I wasn’t planning on even having my dress cleaned as I thought it would be a write off as my wedding was all outdoors.  My dress came out beautiful!  Like the day I bought it.  It also came home in a beautiful box with gloves you can wear when you look at it.

I am very impressed!

Our Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation process is MUCH MORE than just dry cleaning.  It includes special processing techniques which cannot be accomplished by just any neighborhood dry cleaner or in a automated factory environment.   Our Wedding Gown Preservation process is very labor intensive.  We take special care of each and every wedding dress.

First, we are pleased to offer you a FREE, personalized consultation with one of our Wedding Gown Specialists.  There is no obligation to leave your gown with us…..

…..But, most brides do after learning about our cleaning and preservation processes.

When cleaning and preserving a wedding gown, we treat the gown as the heirloom that you want it to be.  We understand what it takes to be able to offer a lifetime guarantee against yellowing and sugar stain damage.

After cleaning, your gown will be carefully packed into the correct size 100% acid free Preservation Chest.  It is important that the preservation chest is matched to the size and style of the dress.  Improper packaging can result in future damage and in this case “size matters.”  Also, 100% acid free tissue paper is packed between the folds of your gown to keep it from having creases when you unpack it many years later.

All of our wedding gown preservation chests have an acid free window so that you may view your gown at any time.  We also include a pair of white cotton gloves should you have the need to open the chest to handle your gown.   Please note, all materials we use are 100% acid free, NOT just PH neutral.  This is an important difference between us and many other gown preservation companies.

When you pickup your cleaned and preserved wedding gown, we will provide you with a written warranty and a sheet of written instruction for the proper long term storage of your gown.
