David's Bridal Wedding Gown Preservation Kit Style DAVIDSWGP
Not bad but not great
I only purchased this kit because I got the discount.
The process was easy and fairly fast. And it seems that I got what I paid for. However, I do have a couple of minor complaints.
My dress is not straight in the box. It is too far to the right and is noticeable. Also, they added a ribbon across the waist in order to, I guess, hold my dress in place. The ribbon says something like "preserving memories." I don't like it. If this ribbon is necessary I would rather it be plain, but I really don't want it there at all.
Overall I guess it was worth what I paid. I am not going to display it, it will probably just stay in my closet.

My dress came back and exceeded my expectations! The instructions were easy to follow and my dress came back quickly. The dress is placed wonderfully in the display box. It is beautiful and I am so glad I will be able to see my dress and be reminded of such great memories. I waited until a half off sale and it was worth every penny!

Absolute Waste of Money
This was a major disappointment. My dress is clearly just shoved in this box with layers flipped up, its crooked and even the dress on the paper mannequin is crooked. There's some tissue paper hanging at an angle down over the top which looks very tacky. There's also some gold colored ribbon over the waste which draws your attention and even more tissue paper behind the bodice. Without the bottom being shown..whose to say the bottom of my dress was even cleaned. To anyone who has a layered dress I do not recommend this unless you don't mind having it messily stuffed into a cardboard box which you could do a better job on your own.

I hesitated for almost 2 years before finally purchasing the preservation kit. I bought my dress from DB but didn't purchase the kit when I bought the dress. My dress had mainly grass and dirt stains on the skirt since it has a long train and got dragged a lot during the wedding. The whole process of packing/shipping/tracking my dress to receive it was really easy and fast (2 weeks total time). I'm very pleased with the result and how my dress looks in the box. The box is sturdy and packaged well, I don't plan on opening the shrink wrap and the dress looks great from where I can see. My dress is very full on the bottom and there is a lot of fabric, it seems to be put together carefully with the tissue paper from what I can see. Overall would definitely recommend this to others.
