Step 1: Timely Cleaning

After the celebration comes to an end, the first step towards preserving your wedding dress is timely cleaning. The sooner you address any stains or marks, the better the chances of successful removal.

Cleaning a wedding dress is a delicate process that requires expertise. Our skilled professionals employ specialized techniques to ensure every inch of your gown is cleaned without causing any damage. From intricate lace detailing to delicate beading, we handle each aspect of your dress with the utmost care and attention.


Step 3: Repair and Restoration

During the cleaning process, we also inspect your gown for any loose threads, missing beads, or small tears that might have occurred during your wedding day. Our team will repair and restore these imperfections, ensuring your dress looks as stunning as it did on your wedding day.


Step 4: Preservation

Preservation is crucial to maintaining the beauty and integrity of your wedding dress for years to come. At I Do Wedding Boston, we've partnered with the esteemed Wedding Gown Preservation Company (WGP), a third-generation family-owned business that has been specializing in gown preservation since 1913.

Step 5: Storage Tips

Once your wedding dress is professionally cleaned and preserved, it's essential to store it in the right conditions to maintain its pristine state. Here are a few tips: Avoid Sunlight: Store your dress in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration. Handle with Care: When moving or examining your preserved gown, always clean your hands to avoid transferring oils or dirt onto the fabric.
