why preserve your dress?
Precious garments deserve special attention. Sheldon offers the best of care by helping you preserve your most treasured mementos for years to come. We provide cleaning options for wedding gowns and formal wear along with wedding gown preservation.
Prevent irreversible fabric damage for the future
When you choose Sheldon Cleaners to preserve your wedding dress, you can rest assured that your gown is in good hands. From the stains and spills you might have made on your special day to the potential damage done in the future, our cleaning and preservation process guarantees a safe and satisfactory result. Storing your dress by yourself runs the risk of it being damaged by water or moisture from the garment bag, by your kids or pets if they get ahold of it, or by yellowing naturally.
Allow your loved ones the opportunity to wear your gown
If you have a daughter or someone that know and love, the day may come when they have the opportunity to wear your wedding dress. When that time arrives, even if they choose to invest in their own dress, how wonderful would it be to at least offer your own? It would be devastating to have to tell them no because your dress was no longer in prime condition. Simply having the option down the road can make all the difference in the world.
a professional cleaning will increase its value
If you end up deciding to sell your wedding dress, you wouldn’t be the only one. Between the expense you have put into it, not wearing it again yourself, and not passing it down if you are not able to, there are plenty of reasons to try and get something back for your dress. If you want to make some of your money back by selling your dress after your wedding, proper cleaning and preservation will offer you the best value.
Create a tangible memory of your wedding day
Your wedding day is meant to be one of the happiest days of your life—if not the happiest. From this day though, how much of it can you actually look back on and remember? Sure, you’ll have the photos and personal memories, but how much will be tangible? Allowing us to clean and preserve your dress will not only help maintain the beauty of your dress but will give you an elegant way to present it as well.
Our preservation sealed packaging allows you to view the gown and veil at anytime
you wish without compromising the seal - protecting the gown from mold, insect
damage, oxidation and mildew. This sealed box is placed inside of an outer shell,
to give the gown extra protection for decades to come.
