Hey friends, Brittanie with Modern Cottage Bridal & Prom. I want to jump on here really quickly and answer a recent common question. That is: What is the wedding dress cleaning and preservation process like? For starters, there are two different options when it comes to cleaning and preservation. You can bring it to me directly. That’s always an option.
“You can schedule a pickup or drop off, or I can ship you a shipping kit.”-Britt
You can schedule a pickup or drop off, or I can ship you a shipping kit. With that, you can mark, your stains and ship that out. All shipping is signature required on your wedding gown preservation and cleaning. Once you ship out your gown, the wait time is about six to 10 weeks from there, you can expect to have your gown returned to you, boxed and preserved.
Also, when you open it up, and if you wish to pull it out of the box or look at it, it’s important to wear gloves. The reason being is the oil from your hands can actually stain the dress over time. With preservation, you have to keep that in mind. We always recommend additional storage outside of the cardboard box provided. The box does work fine as long as you have the two boxes around it. I think that would be just fine for storage, but it’s definitely important to get some sort of waterproof box around it. I think that’s important. Aside from that, it’s a pretty simple process. If you have any questions, feel free to visit our contact page and inquire there about wedding gown preservation and cleaning. Or you can text me at 208-696-1155
