What Are the Benefits of Wedding Dress Preservation?
Wedding dress preservation is the perfect way not only to cherish the special memories you made on your wedding day but also to keep your gown safe, clean, and in museum-quality condition. Trust the professional wedding dress cleaners at Highlander Cleaners to care for your most precious keepsake. We can remove those invisible stains—sweat, dirt, and oils—that will cause yellowing and fabric degradation in the future.
1. Keeps the Gown Safe
After skillfully removing any dirt and stains on your dress, we’ll invite you to inspect the wedding gown before carefully placing it into a preservation box. Your gown will be safe from the havoc that time can cause it, leaving it in beautiful condition for years to come. You can then choose to store your wedding gown for future use for your daughter or even your granddaughter. No matter if it’s for long-term or short-term storage, your dress will be kept safe.
2. Professionally Cleans Even the Most Delicate Fabrics
Your wedding gown is likely made up of multiple fabrics. Perhaps there’s a tulle overlay, a chiffon skirt, or a lace bodice. Maybe you have a full satin dress that shines in any lighting. Or did you go for a vintage feel with a velvet dress? No matter what type of fabric composes your dress, you can trust the wedding dress preservation process at Highland Cleaners to make it look as beautiful as it did the moment you put it on.
3. Preserves Your Special Day
When you get your wedding gown cleaned and preserved, you’re not just saving a dress—you’re keeping the memories of your special day. Whether you’re going to put your preserved dress into a wedding chest or display it in your living room next to a memorable photo from your big day, keeping your dress in pristine condition will remind you of the happy memories from that day. Don’t trust this process to amateurs. Choose the experts at Highlander Cleaners.
What’s It Like Working With Highlander Cleaners?
“I have had wonderful luck with bringing my clothes to Highlander. They are kind, and they get my dry cleaning done very quickly! I recently took my wedding dress to them to get it preserved. I was so impressed with the price they quoted me – I was expecting to pay much more!! After two weeks, they called for me to come to inspect my dress before they boxed it up. I was in awe of how clean and beautiful it looked – no more dirt and stains around the bottom! This is a great local business that my husband and I love to support. I would highly recommend them for your dry cleaning as well as wedding dress preservation!”
