The post wedding dilemma: A few things to consider when deciding where to have your gown cleaned and preserved.

Situation:  The wedding is over and just as you thought all the wedding decisions were done, you realize your gown needs to be cleaned to preserved. When deciding who you can trust with your gown here are a few quick things to find out.

Look for a cleaner who specializes in cleaning and preserving wedding gowns. Most cleaners DO NOT handle wedding gowns in house. They send them off to a specialist, often in another state. Not good. You want a cleaner who takes responsibility for your gown.

Ask if the cleaner has been specially trained and is a member of an Association. The last thing you need is someone who is going to practice or “learn on the job” with your beautiful gown.

What kind of guarantee does the cleaner provide? Today or twenty-five years from today, who is going to honor the guarantee that your gown will still be in perfect, ready-to-wear condition?
