    Cleaning and Preserving Wedding Gown

    I would love to have my daughter's wedding gown cleaned and preserved for her.  Do any of you know where in Medford/Malden area I can have it both cleaned and preserved?  Also, if you can give me figure on what costs would be, I would appreciate it.  I have been told it could be $200.00 - $300.00.  If any of you had it done, what was the cost?   Thanks for all your help.

    I used this company:
    it was $149, and they did a good job.

    I have never been able to find out what the so-called "preserving" includes.

    They tell you it's "preserved" as long as the box remains sealed.

    I think they just clean it and put it in an acid-free box with acid-free tissue.

    I would be interested to find out if anyone has asked a cleaner about this and been told the truth, whatever it might be.

    cosmo is mostly right.  They put it in a acid-free box with acid-free tissue.  they also inspect it extra-carefully for "invisible" sugar stains that yellow over time, though maybe a good dry cleaner does this too--i don't know.
    ...i preserved mine b/c my little sister said she may like to wear it.

    Hi.  Do you know if the place that preserved your dress cleans it first?  Just wondering b/c I'd like to have that done to my dress, but noticed a few stains on it from the wedding.

    Thanks.  Stacy

    Yes they clean it. They send you a kit with stickers to mark stains, and they also inspect it carefully to identify and remove any other stains.
