Wedding Professionals: Wedding Gown Cleaning / Preservation

Wedding Gown Presevation and Cleaning Companies

Cleaned and preserved wedding gowns in Raleigh NC.

If you want to keep your wedding gown to remember your special day or to pass on to a friend or relative it is important to have it cleaned and preserved. The time to start the process is right after the wedding. The longer you wait the harder it will be for the cleaner to remove stains. There are different ways of accomplishing this. One way is to send your gown off to be cleaned and preserved. Your second option is to have your gown taken care of in town by one of the cleaners knowledgeable in handling wedding gowns. Either way the cleaner should start by hand treating any spots along the hem, collar, or on the gown itself. Be aware that not all stains will come out without causing damage to the fabric. Stains containing sugar such as wine and cake are the most difficult. The gown should then be cleaned with a solution that doesn't contain perchloroethylene, since it is too harsh for beading and the fine fabrics of wedding gowns. Once the cleaning process is complete the gown should be steamed and pressed then placed in an acid free box with a window. You want to make sure you're getting your gown back right? Just kidding! The cleaning and preservation process can take anywhere from 3 to twelve weeks depending on who you use, where they are located, and the time of the year. You can even have someone take care of your wedding gown while you are on your honeymoon. Ah, one less thing to worry about while you're honeymooning. Call or visit these Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, or Cary cleaners for your wedding gown preservation needs.
