Wedding Gown Preservation

Wedding Gown Preservation

Your wedding gown is a special possession like no other. For that reason, it is extremely important to have your dress professionally cleaned as soon as possible after your big day to preserve both the dress and the memories of your day.

At Quality Cleaners, we can also provide award winning alterations to your gown, as well as the entire bridal party.  If you will be in the Harrisburg Area, just give us a call at 717-737-8444 or contact us and we will schedule you to see our extraordinary seamstresses.

Stains become more difficult to treat the longer they remain in the fabric.  Each wedding gown is a unique and a prized possession and it will be inspected and cleaned according to its style, stains, material and design.

Our professional drycleaners have an excellent reputation and have many years experience in cleaning wedding gowns so you can rest assured your bridal dress will be treated with the utmost of care and attention.

Here are some FAQ’s we receive from our
Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation customers:

– Should I pre-spot or try and treat any stains that are on my wedding gown before I bring it in?
In short, no.  Please do not pre-treat any stains on your gown before bringing it to us.  Let our professional cleaners analyze the stain, fabric, and style of the dress to determine the appropriate way to clean it.

Our cleaning process can remove just about any stain you can get in your gown.  Typically we receive gowns with and subsequently remove: dirt, mud, makeup, perspiration, food, wine, and even occasionally blood.  Of course, the sooner the gown comes to be treated, the more successful the gown cleaning will be.  Think your wedding gown is too dirty?  We accept the challenge.


-Will my gown be boxed when I get it back from Quality Cleaners?

Your gown (and up to 3 items such as veil, shoes, etc.) will  be returned to you in an acid free keepsake box and packed in acid free tissue paper.

Keepsake Box

The keepsake box has a viewing window for you to be able to see your beautifully preserved Wedding Gown any time you would like.  The keepsake box is then placed in a protective storage box to ensure it’s safety and preservation.  The combination of boxes ensure that the gown is protected from moisture, humidity, and temperature changes that may occur in your home.  The box also protects from insects, moths, and other pests that may be near the box.
