Bring pictures of dresses you’ve seen on our website, in magazines, online or that you’ve tried on elsewhere. We recommend bringing proper undergarments that you might wear on your wedding day.

Who should I bring to my appointment and how many people may I bring with me?
Bring the closest friend or family member(s) whose opinion you value the most and with whom you want to share the experience of buying your gown with. If there is a key person that will be the one to help you decide on and/or pay for your dress, make sure they are available to come with. All appointments will be limited to the bride and 3 guests. Exceptions can be made for weekday appointments only.
How long in advance do I need to order my gown?
Typically you should place your order no less than 6 months before your wedding. However, due to Covid, we have seen some delays in shipping and are now recommending 9-12 months prior to the wedding. Some designers have eliminated rush options so the sooner, the better!

Why should I preserve my wedding gown?
- Stains (especially invisible sugar stains) will continually set in and yellow a gown as it ages. By removing them early on you ensure your gown stays the same color as the day you wore it for decades after the preservation
- Give you children or grand children the option of re-wearing your wedding gown as styles come and go. We’ve re-preserved dresses that have been re-worn for hundreds of brides over the years.
- Humidity and sunlight both rapidly deteriorate delicate fabrics. The wedding dress preservation kit has UV protection and seam sealing built in to protect your gown against these elements.
- It’s affordable! We partner with The Wedding Gown Preservation Company, the most trusted name in the preservation business, and can save you hundreds of dollars as compared with using your local dry cleaner.
