Was it everything you ever dreamed of?

The big day has come and gone, but you’ve got memories to last a lifetime. Speaking of memories to last a lifetime, how about preserving that gorgeous wedding gown so it lasts a lifetime, too.

Gown preservation is a process that includes cleaning and packaging techniques to ensure your gown retains its beauty. A professional preservationist will survey your gown, then formulate a specialized cleaning procedure. Many Arkansas bridal boutiques use the Wedding Gown Preservation Co., Based out of Endicott, New York as their preservation company of choice.

The Wedding Gown Preservation Co. has been preserving gowns since 1913. The company boasts cleaning that is 100 percent organic and guarantees the dress from oxidizing for 100 years.

The service costs around $200 and you can expect your gown back in about 3-10 weeks. Check with your bridal boutique, because many offer discounts on preserving gowns bought in-store. To streamline the process, we have a bevy of bridal boutiques listed on our website to help you get the job done.
