Preserving an Everlasting Memory

You’re not just preserving any gown; this is the one that marks the beginning of your lifetime together.

Ella Park Bridal entrusts The Wedding Gown Preservation Company, who has specialized in gown preservation since 1913 and has built a name among brides for many generations.  Their cleaning methods have been proven and recognized by the International Fabric Institute as the best method in the gown preservation industry.  These methods are also organic and environmentally-friendly.  They pride themselves in the highest standard of quality and care of bridal gowns in cleaning and preservation.

Wedding Gown Preservation Company removes spots and thoroughly clean the entire gown, paying special attention to  the neckline, trim, and hemline.  Experts will then shape the gown, position it on a full bust form, and fill the sleeves (if necessary).  Afterwards the bust form is fitted carefully into an acid-neutral preservation chest with an acid-free display window.  The preservation chest is enclosed in a 700 lb test shipping carton.  Your gown is then shipped back to you pre-paid anywhere in the Continental United States via UPS.  The preservation will be completed within 6 to 12 weeks after the gown is received. Please see the two lines of preservation kits that Ella Park Bridal offers.

The cost for a preservation kit ranges from $209 to $259.  If you purchased your gown from Ella Park Bridal, you will SAVE 10% off the kit.
