MuseumCare Preservation

  • We test fabrics, beads & embellishments to insure that we use the safest & best cleaning method for each gown.
  • We clean each gown individually.
  • We will pre-spot all stains that we can see & apply our patented “Anti Sugar Stain Treatment” for all stains that go unseen.
  • We preserve our pieces utilizing our MuseumCare™ Preservation process by wrapping & layering in acid-free tissue paper and carefully folding into our 100% acid free museum quality boxes. We also add a cotton muslin cover for added protection. The box is not sealed so that your dress can breathe.
  • We invite you to come back to re-inspect the dress prior to Preservation (optional and available at some locations).

As a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, the MuseumCare™ Preservation Package is backed by members in more than 500 cities around the world. Having your wedding gown restoration and preservation done by a member of the AWGS means that your gown will not yellow for a lifetime. You can bring your boxed gown to any participating Wedding Gown Specialist who will inspect & press the gown at no charge.

Restoration (Vintage or Damaged)

When restoring a wedding dress we take every precaution to protect delicate beads, embroidery & lace during the cleaning process. Wedding gown restoring/cleaning is designed to return a textile back to its original color. In some cases especially with material fibers like silk, the color may only brighten a bit from its current state. Once complete, the garment is hand pressed, and returned on a hanger in a protective poly bag (unless the preservation option is selected)

You may drop off your wedding dress at any of our St Croix Cleaners locations. Please call the appropriate store for an appointment to meet with one of our Specialists to get a quote for cleaning and/or preserving your individual wedding dress. Contact us with and questions about this process.

1Please remove poly bag as soon as possible — garments stored in poly bags will start to oxidize (yellow) quickly. Poly bags are intended only for protection of garments in transit.
