FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is wedding dress preservation?
It involves two important steps: cleaning and packaging. First, the gown is carefully cleaned to remove any stains, dirt, or other things that might harm it. Then, it is packaged in using acid-free tissue paper to protect it from damage and keep it looking almost like new. This process helps the dress stay beautiful for many years.
Why should I choose a professional cleaner for my wedding gown preservation?
Wedding gowns are made of delicate fabrics and have intricate details, so it’s important to handle them carefully. Sometimes, there might be stains on the gown that you can’t see right away. But, professional cleaners like Press Club Dry Cleaners know how to find and remove them before they become more noticeable over time.
How long after the wedding should I get my gown cleaned and preserved?
You should get your gown cleaned and preserved as soon as possible after the event. The longer you wait, the more time stains and dust have to set in, making it more difficult or impossible to remove.
How long does the preservation process take?
When you take your wedding gown to Press Club Dry Cleaners in Charlotte, NC, they will start the preservation process. This process takes about 3 weeks to complete. First, they will give your gown a really good cleaning. After the cleaning, they will carefully press the gown to make sure it looks nice and smooth.
Then comes the packaging part. They will put your gown in a special preservation box. This box is made to be acid-free and pH-neutral, which means it won’t harm your gown over time. It will help protect the gown from damage and keep it safe. And guess what? They will even give you an heirloom box to keep!
Can I bring my gown to Press Club Dry Cleaners even if I didn't buy it from New York Bride or Cunningham Cleaners?
Of course! Press Club Dry Cleaners can clean and preserve gowns from any bridal boutique or designer, as long as they are located in Charlotte.
What is the cost of wedding gown preservation at Press Club Dry Cleaners?
The cost of preserving a wedding gown at Press Club Dry Cleaners in Charlotte can be different for each gown. It depends on things like the type of fabric, the style of the gown, and the level of staining. Before they start working on your gown, they offer a free consultation and estimate. This way, you will know exactly what to expect and can decide if it fits your budget.
Do I need to get my gown altered before getting it cleaned and preserved?
It is recommended to get any alterations done before the cleaning and preservation process. That way, you can keep the same great fit and style of your gown even after it’s been cleaned and preserved.
Can I take my gown out of the preservation box to look at it?
You can take your gown out of the preservation box to look at it. But it’s best to handle it with clean hands and to avoid doing it more often. It’s best to be cautious and handle it only when necessary.
Can I still have my gown preserved if it's been months or even years since the wedding?
Even after a few weeks or months later, it’s still possible to have it cleaned and preserved. The longer you wait, though, the higher the chances that there could be stains that can’t be removed completely. But don’t worry! At Press Club Dry Cleaners, we give our best to make your gown look as good as possible and protect it from getting worse.
How should I store my preservation box?
You should store your preservation box in a cool, dry, and dark place, like under a bed or in a closet. Avoid storing it in a damp like a basement or attic because this can damage the gown’s fabric and attract insects.
