Your wedding gown is much more than a dress, it is a treasure, a symbol of an important event in your life. After the ceremony and the reception you may find that your gown is much less picturesque than the gown in your wedding portraits. All those festivities have taken a toll on your beloved gown. The dress may have invisible stains from food, beverages, and body oils. If these stains are not removed, they may become permanent. Therefore, it is important to point out any stains or spills to your cleaner before cleaning.
West Oak Cleaners offers the finest wedding gown cleaning and preservation in the St. Louis area.
1. We hand test every type of bead and fabric on the dress. Our professional cleaners meticulously clean each dress. Well-experinced pressers finish the dress before the bride views the garment.
2. We ask our brides to exaime the gown before it is preserved. We like to give our brides the peace of mind in knowing that the gown being preserved is cleaned to their satisfaction. We will reclean, repress, or reexaime any and every detail the bride questions.
3. West Oak Cleaners offers cutting edge preservation methods.
A. Muslin Bag-Specifically designed garment bag allows the dress to 'breathe', while protecting from permanent creases, light, and dust. Museums have been using this method for years. This method is only recommended if there is adequate room to hang the garment in a controlled enviornment. This is an excellent option if dress is being resold or reused. Not recommended for long-term storage or for an extremely heavy gown.
B Boxed- The gown is situated in a specifically designed, acid-free, museum quality, gold foil box. Acid-free tissue paper is used to buffer folds along with a cardboard bodice to maintain the integrity of the dress. The boxed can be sealed or not sealed. (Sealed- oxygen is removed from the box with plastic cover.) A sealed box offers additional protection from air and moisture but the dress is not easily accessed.
