Hi, friends, it’s Britt here. Just jumping on here really quickly to talk to you guys about how wedding dress preservation works.
There are multiple ways to preserve your gown.
There are three options for they way you preserve your dress. You can either a set up a time to drop off your dress or you can schedule a pickup. A pick up would be where I travel to you and pick up your gown. The third option, too, is that I can mail you a shipping kit. After that, I go through and I evaluate where the stains are. If there might be any damage, I would take note of that and make sure the wedding gown receives extra attention for that care. If you have a preservation shipping kit, I would help guide your through those steps along the way. If you are a long distance and I have sent you a shipping kit.
“Vintage wedding gowns that are from the 1960s come back looking more of a fresh white ivory versus an aged yellowed ivory.”
Your gown value, fabric content, and designer are all taken into consideration when we preserve it.
We take into consideration the value of the gown, the content of the fabric, and the designer as well. All this information is really important when it comes to cleaning, and then the wedding gown gets shipped to be cleaned by our certified specialists. Once that is complete, which can take up to four to five weeks depending on how backed up the cleaning company is, that gown is then returned to either you or me.
The shipping is very secure!
