How Much Fun Did Your Gown Have at Your Wedding?
We are experts in Wedding Gown Cleaning & Preservation. All wedding dresses are hand cleaned and we use special state of the art equipment right here in Memphis TN.
We NEVER send out gowns to wholesalers to be cleaned. Cleaning bridal gowns and formalwear is our specialty.
We were trained by the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists. Additionally we have developed proprietary cleaning methods to make sure your gown is returned in the best possible condition for future generations.
We know this was the gown of your dreams and we value the trust you place in us to care for it.
Many steps go into Cleaning and Preserving your Gown
Inspection – This is key to good gown cleaning. We inspect for loose beads and trim. We also check for open seams and tears. We often find torn bustle ties. We will identify and discuss our findings with you, so you are comfortable with what we are going to do with your precious gown.
Hand Cleaning – We carefully hand treat, and clean every gown with special solutions giving protection to trims, lace and embroidery. Every gown is then rinsed individually in pure environmentally safe solutions.
Finishing – After cleaning we steam and press every gown so it is just like before your wedding.
Final Inspection and Preservation – We complete a detailed final inspection and pack your your gown in a 100% acid free museum quality preservation chest. This final inspection is always performed by Mitch or Sandy Jacobs, the owners of Drake Cleaners and A Better Fit Alterations.
