Crystal Bridal Boutique offers cleaning and preservation services to all brides before and after the wedding day.
We are working with a Reputable Wedding Preservation Co. (www.gownpreservation.com) that has been found in 1913. The estimated time for the “Clean Only” dresses will take around 3-4weeks.
The Cleaning and Preservation services will take approximately 6-10 weeks depending on the time of the year and availability.
Just bring us your dress and we will estimate the cost of the services needed.
Please call us for an appointment to drop off your gown at (347)-462-4941.
What exactly is the process used to clean the gown?
There are different processes that are used for cleaning. Each gown is evaluated upon its arrival and the best cleaning process for that particular gown is used. All of the processes are safe, gentle and environmentally safe. Your gown is then fitted on an acid-free bust form and packed in our acid-neutral preservation chest. Please note shoulder pads and bust pads must be removed as they could cause damage to the gown over time. They will be wrapped in tissue paper and packed underneath your gown.
What stains can be removed?
Approximately 95% of all stains are able to be removed – including tar, blood, perspiration, grass, mud, grease, and food, being the most common, as well as any sugar stains from cake icing, wine and other beverages.
How my gown will be packaged?
The gown will be packaged in a display case with a window. You will be able to view your gown and veil. Any other items will be positioned at the bottom of the window, where possible, or packed underneath your dress.
What else can I send along with my gown?
You may also send items such as your veil, gloves, garter, moneybag, handkerchief, or slip. Additional fees may apply.
Is my gown guaranteed?
YES! The company provides a 100-year guarantee against caramelized sugar stains or yellowing. If at anytime your gown is found to have yellowed or has caramelized stains, they will reprocess the gown at no additional cost. If reprocessing is found to be unsuccessful, they will refund the preservation cost.
REMEMBER: Never store your gown in the attic or basement.
