Wedding gown preservation in Birmingham,Alabama

You can clean and preserve your wedding dress but will that guarantee your wedding dress will be in great shape in 25 years? 


While you will have a big advantage over someone who does not preserve her wedding dress...that will not guarantee your dress will be in good shape for the next generation. 




Here are my tips to any Bride wanting to preserve her wedding dress for the next generation and beyond:

  1. Clean and preserve your wedding dress as soon after the wedding as possible.
  2. Select an experienced and qualified wedding dress specialist to clean and preserve your wedding dress.  Use a Certified Wedding Gown SpecialistTM.

  3. Keep it stored away from kids and pets...especially cats.

  4. Keep it stored in the climate controlled area of your home...never in an attic or basement without HVAC.
  5. Store the preserved wedding dress up off the floor because you never know when pipes may break and your flood the floor

  6. Don't stack things on or around it.  The preservation chest needs to breathe to allow fresh air circulate around the wedding dress, reducing the chance of the gown yellowing over the years.

  7. Take a look at your wedding dress every 3 years to identify and address any problems that might be developing.
