Gown Preservation: All the Details...
Why clean and preserve your gown?
At a minimum, you should at least have your gown cleaned after your wedding day. A lot goes on during your wedding and bridal portraits that may cause dirt on the bottom of your gown, stains from the reception, and sweat from having a great time dancing and the Louisiana heat! Preservation ensures that your gown doesn't yellow with time and stains don't set. So if you plan to show your daughter or granddaughters in the future, cleaning and preservation is a MUST. Depending on your gown, our stylists will recommend one of the following preservations:
$275 Designer Preservation
$450 Couture Preservation
The difference between the two packages is who we are sending your gown to. We use two different companies and both preservation companies are absolutely wonderful (we wouldn't use them if they weren't!). One company is a huge corporation that does hundreds of wedding preservations daily and the other is a small business that handles couture gowns one on one. Our recommendation will be based on your gown, how much attention it needs, and how intricate it is. The process of cleaning and preserving your gown can take up to 4 months. You may include your veil and accessories with your gown! Full payment is required prior to or when you drop off your wedding gown for preservation.
