Wedding Gown Preservation

Preserving Your Memories

Are you looking to have your wedding dress cleaned and preserved?  Wedding dresses represent a significant financial investment, and many brides and their families want to store and protect their gowns for future generations. We understand the importance of preservation and restoration better than most.  We are the only local member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists in Louisville, KY and Southern Indiana.  We do not send your gown out to a specialist in another state.  We’re the specialist!

Why do brides wish to have their gown preserved?

  1. For their daughter to possibly wear in the future.
  2. To display at anniversaries such as a 50th.
  3. To resell it.

We can protect and preserve your gown for the next generation of brides. Let Nu-Yale Cleaners help preserve your wedding gown and your memories.

Preparation and Preservation

Our professional preservation and restoration process includes the removal of a variety of stains such as soda, wine, cake, and food.  Traditional dry cleaning methods cannot dissolve sugar and it caramelizes over a period of time, turning into unattractive brown stains. Salt from perspiration stains also remains and tends to deteriorate the fabric. Nu-Yale Cleaners uses a special formula to dissolve sugar and provide an anti-oxidation treatment. Other body oils and cosmetics are removed at this time as well.

Only when the gown is completely cleaned does the final process of preservation take place. Nu-Yale Cleaners can place your gown in a premium quality box with an acid-free window for viewing. This box is designed so your gown will not shift when stored in any position. Also available is a Tyvek garment bag designed to hang in a closet.
