Devan’s Wedding Gown Preservation Journey

Red wine stains and dirty bar floors couldn’t keep this bride down. Bride Devan and her new husband Sam had their special day this past summer in Iowa, that included a memorable wedding dress cleaning immediately after. As you’ll see in this Q&A with Devan and her dress, a mother’s wedding contribution cannot be understated. Enjoy the journey Devan’s gown took from the dance floor to wedding dress preservation.

 

When was your wedding and where did it take place?

Our wedding was on July 6, 2018, in Des Moines, Iowa. The ceremony and reception both took place outside at Salisbury House and Gardens.

When did you know that your wedding dress was “the one?”

My wedding dress is a fit-and-flare with a lot of tulle on the bottom. I always knew I wanted a fitted bridal gown. I tried on lots of different styles, but I came back to one of the first dresses I tried on.

 

What is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?

My favorite memory from our wedding day was seeing my friends and family all in one place at the same time. It was such an awesome experience. I felt so loved and could not believe all of those people came to see us! I also loved getting ready in the morning with my mom, mother-in-law and bridesmaids. It was a super relaxing morning and I loved getting pampered!

Why did you decide to get your wedding dress cleaned?

 

My mom took my wedding dress to the cleaner without me knowing. I’m super glad she did. We went to a bar after the wedding and my dress got super dirty on the bottom, so it needed a wedding gown preservation! I had also spilled red wine all down the front of the wedding dress, so it needed to be cleaned!

Why did you bring your wedding dress to Treasured Garment Restoration?

I am not sure why my mom chose Treasured Garment Restoration for the wedding dress cleaning. I am sure it was a close location to her house!

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.
Real brideWhat is your absolute favorite memory from your wedding day?
My favorite memory was having my friends and family to celebrate the wonderful day with us.

Why did you decide to get your wedding attire cleaned by Treasured Garment Restoration?
The lace on the 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.
