TGR Original: Nichole’s Wedding Gown Preservation

To kick off our Real Brides Blogs, we have an extra special interview with Nichole who had her dress redesigned prior to her wedding & cleaned after by our specialists’ at Treasured Garment Restoration. Read more about Nichole’s wedding dress journey below.

When was your wedding and where did it take place?
The wedding was at the Barns of Lost Creek in Beldenville, WI on June 27, 2015
When did you know that your wedding dress was “the one”?
The dress was my mom’s. My grandma (dad’s mom) made the dress for my mom 38 years ago. My grandma died when I was 14. So, I thought that it would be special to wear a dress that my mom wore and my grandma made.
What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
My favorite memory was having my friends and family to celebrate a wonderful day with us.
Why did you decide to get your wedding dress cleaned by Treasured Garment Restoration?
The lace on the wedding dress had yellowed and need to be cleaned to appear white again. I wanted to have the dress restored and altered/updated a bit from the 1970’s look. Therefore, we had it restored and changed to be more in style.
