Dry cleaning wedding gowns is a specialty. Wedding gowns that are treated as a regular dry cleaning order will inevitably fail to be completely clean and are highly likely to be damaged.

Your choice of cleaners will decide will decide if your gown is preserved in its original lustrous white condition or turns yellow and has damaged or loose beading. Dry Clean Xpress specializes in cleaning wedding gowns and heirloom garments and we want to share some critical questions you should be asking when deciding on who to entrust your gown to.

What You Need to Know When Selecting a Fort Lauderdale Dry Cleaner for Your Wedding Gown

First and foremost you need to get your gown cleaned as quickly as possible after the wedding to minimize the possibility of stains and dirt "settling" on the fabric. Given that most weddings occur on a weekend and the couple heads out on their honeymoon immediately, asking a member of the wedding party to get the dress to a cleaner is a smart idea.

But which dry cleaner?

Here are the questions you need to ask:

  • Not a question but an excellent idea is to check with several bridal gown shops for their recommendations. These shops regularly use dry cleaners to keep their stock clean and fresh smelling.
  • Some dry cleaners say they do wedding gowns but actually send them out to wholesale wedding gown cleaners. The odds of careful inspection and gentle treatment of your gown at these wholesalers is slim.
  • Does the dry cleaner offer wet cleaning as an alternative and if they don't, do they use virgin cleaning solution when doing a wedding gown?
  • If your dress is silk you will need someone who specializes in the fabric. Normally there will be one person who is designated to handle silk. What kind of experience does that person have in the dry cleaning and pressing of silk garments?
  • What type of preservation method is used?

The important thing to remember here is that not all dry cleaners are the same. Almost all of them will claim that they clean wedding gowns but the real question is how they do it and how satisfying the end results are.
