Gown Preservation

Your once-in-a-lifetime gown should last a lifetime! Now you can preserve it for the next generation with our exclusive “Museum Style” Heirloom Preservation.

Gown Preservation | Elizabeth's Bridal Manor

Few things are as cherished as a wedding gown.

With the careful planning that goes into selecting the perfect gown, many brides choose to heirloom their dress as a keepsake. A properly preserved gown preserves the dream of passing it down to a daughter or close family friend.

While a gown may be worn just one day, and may not appear soiled, it will require careful cleaning. Hidden soiling includes perspiration and body oils. Long gowns will pick up soil along the hemline and train and even food and beverage spills. Some stains, which are not immediately visible, will develop with age through oxidation causing discoloration, fabric weakness, and damage to the gown.

Our wedding gown specialists carefully examine every gown, establishing the most suitable method of cleaning. Inspections are made at every stage of the cleaning and preservation process. Each wedding gown receives special and individual handling, with attention given to every detail.

Key Features

  • Thorough Inspection
  • Moisture/Oxygen Control
  • Acid-Neutral, PH Control
  • Sealed Packaging
  • Expert Cleaning

Heirloom Preservation

Our newly designed Museum Style storage boxes feature state of the art moisture and oxygen control technology. Traditional wedding gown storage boxes do not protect or guarantee against oxidation or “yellowing” of the gown. Our advanced system guarantees that your gown will be as good as the day you wore it down the aisle.

Here’s How

Your dress is carefully sealed in an acid-free inner box that controls humidity. The oxygen is purged and replaced with inert gas, virtually making oxidation impossible. Our sealed packaging allows viewing of your gown and veil while protecting your gown from mold, mildew, insect damage, and oxidation. The inner box is placed in a durable long-term storage chest for additional safety.

Let's Get Together

We look forward to helping you find the gown of your dreams at Elizabeth’s Bridal Manor.
