Wedding Dress Preservation

We Can Help Preserve Your Memories

Your wedding dress will be cleaned, pressed, and preserved in an acid free bridal chest surrounded with acid free tissues to prevent yellowing. This will help to ensure your dress stays beautiful for years to come.


Is the box vacuum sealed?

No, we do not use vacuum sealing, as it creates a potential medium for insects/mold.

Where should I store my Bridal Chest?

It should be stored in temperature and humidity controlled environment. We suggest keeping your Bridal Chest in a bedroom or other living area, not in the basement or attic.

How much does Wedding Dress Preservation cost?

The price will vary for each dress, based on the uniqueness of the style, trim, and fabric. A simple A-line dress without embellishment will be less expensive than a dress with many layers and a long train. We can give you an estimate after we examine the dress. Please call to set up an appointment, or you can drop your dress off at our store and we will call you with an exact price. Prices start at $135.

How long does it take?

It takes approximately 3 weeks, but we can expedite your preservation if timing is your concern.
