Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation

Wedding gown cleaning and preservation is one of Hallak's specialty services.

Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation

As a member of many wedding groups (e.g. Association of Wedding Gown Specialists), our wedding department continuously trains and stays ahead of the latest trends.

In general, each wedding season brings new designs and styles.  For example, 3-D designs and ornamentation are increasingly popular.  Similarly to the new styles, there are new ways to care for them.  Through knowledge and testing, true experts are able to handle any new or unique style.

"I used Hallak Cleaners for my wedding gown preservation and they did not disappoint! My dress looks great and they were able to send me detailed pictures post-preservation to sign off before it went into the box. They were so accommodating with my schedule (unlike other places that only let you drop/pick off on specific days/times) and they will ship your dress to you at the end! They were very responsive with all emails and I highly recommend! I would definitely use their services in the future."

Wedding Gown Cleaning versus Preservation

Before deciding on a wedding gown cleaning or a full preservation, consider your post-wedding intentions.

Typically, a cleaning is always recommended.  Even if you are not sure of gown’s future, you should protect the fabric’s integrity.  Once cleaned, you can decide to move forward with the preservation steps.

What is a preservation?  Preservation is not a specific process that is done to the gown; it doesn’t require some sort of special solvent or treatment.  Preservation is a professional full cleaning and then proper storage.  All of our wedding gowns are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and then stored within a museum-quality preservation box.  It is NOT sealed.  Garments should be able to breathe.  

All of our wedding gown preservations come with a lifetime guarantee backed by both us and the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists.  Along with your wedding gown box, you will receive specific instructions on how to keep your gown looking it’s best.  Additionally, we include white cotton viewing gloves. For further information, please email or call (212) 832-0750.
