Preservation & Heirloom

You spent a great deal of time, money, and thought selecting your wedding gown. Your wedding gown is a treasured keepsake that if properly cleaned and preserved, can last decades. Cleaning and preserving your bridal gown as soon as possible ensures that your gown remains in the best condition possible. After a wedding, many bridal gowns are left in the plastic garment bag with good intentions of cleaning and preservation sometime in the near future. This procrastination poses some serious risks to the gown.  We suggest only two methods to safely preserve your keep sake, both are excellent storage solutions. 

Bridal Chest:  We have both standard and premium boxes to choose from. 

Gown has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped
The gown’s bodice is shaped and packaged with an acid free cardboard bust for display
The bodice and skirt are layered with acid free tissue paper
Your gown is then carefully placed in an acid free windowed bridal chest and packed to keep out insects and humidity
The display box is placed inside a second storage box and then both of these boxes are placed in a protective bag, to protect from moisture

Hanging storage:

Gown has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped
Placed on a satin heavy duty tissue padded designer hanger
The gown’s bodice and shoulders are shaped and packaged with an acid free cardboard bust to allow the weight to be distributed equally
Your gown is then placed in a luxurious soft, breathable, cloth-like bag with a 20” gusseted bottom to allow room for the train.

Regardless of your preservation choice, we are here to heirloom your treasure for the next generation.  In addition to Wedding Attire, we can heirloom any garment.  Christening gowns, kids and baby apparel, and often military or sports apparel is not out of the question.  Any of our locations can assist you with information and processing.  If you do require assistance, email
