What To Do With Your Gown if Your Wedding Has Been Postponed


Wondering what to do with your gown if your wedding has been postponed? We are here to help during this uncertain time.  So now until May 20th, 2020 we are offering some new Gown Cleaning and Preservation Promotions! We have heard from so many of our brides that they are looking to or have already postponed their wedding.  Or they are looking to have a small intimate ceremony on their original date and then celebrate with everyone, when we are allowed to do so, down the road. Because of all of these changes we want to offer some different options to make sure your gown stays perfect for your big day, whether that is down the road or now two days!

If you purchased your gown with us or even if you didn’t, you can take advantage of these promotions.  We send out your gown to Orange Restoration, who specialize in wedding gown cleaning and preservation.  They will also clean and preserve your veil in the same box for no extra charge!

Here are our new promotions for gown cleaning and preservation:


Option 1: If you are postponing your wedding, to a date way down the road in the future, you can preserve your gown and have it packed in an air-sealed box to preserve its original quality. To package a gown never worn for preservation, $99.

Option 2: If you are planning to go forward with a small, intimate ceremony on your original date, but then plan to have a reception down the road you can clean your gown and preserve it after your initial ceremony so it is just like new when you have your reception.  To have it cleaned after a ceremony and then boxed for preservation until the reception, $375. 

Option 3: If you are looking to take advantage of option 2, but are also looking to you have your gown cleaned and preserved after your reception as well, this option is for you! To have your gown cleaned after your ceremony, boxed for preservation until your reception and then cleaned and re-preserved after reception, $499. Saving you $175.

Option 4: If your gown is brand new or clean, but you have postponed your wedding, preserving your gown is the best way to keep it that way.  If you are looking to preserve your gown before your wedding and are also looking to clean and preserve your gown after your wedding, this package is for you!  You can have your gown preserved so it stays nice and new before your big day and then you can have it cleaned and preserved after your wedding as well for $450.  Saving you $49, this service would originally add up to be $499.

Option 5: If you are already married, we are offering our pre-wedding discount of $300 for gown cleaning and preservation, until May 20th.  Saving you $75, this service is usually $375.


If you are interested in taking advantage of any of these five gown cleaning and preservation options, just shoot us an email or text and we will be happy to set it up for you! If we don’t already have your gown, you can ship us your gown or we can even coordinate a ‘touchless drop-off.”
