David's Bridal Wedding Gown Preservation Kit Style DAVIDSWGP
Just got around to sending my daughter's wedding gown for cleaning and preservation...the military moved them twice since their marriage. The directions were very easy to understand. The tape provided to close the box was not acceptable. I ended up using my own packing tape. I liked that I could drop the box off at many convenient places, including any David's Bridal (my choice). I was disappointed that the veil was an extra charge. The $15 fee was almost half the entire cost of the veil to begin with! I had done some comparison shopping at other local dry cleaners, and the cost was $100 to $150 more and we wouldn't get it back for up to 6 months! I believe they held on to the gowns until they had enough to ship away. That did not make me very happy. Since our daughter found her beautiful wedding gown at David's Bridal, I decided to check out the website. I am so glad I did! I can hardly wait to see when it comes back!

I highly recommend, the Wedding Gown Preservation Kit. Sent my dress on June 29th and less than two weeks I received it back, July 10th. My dress, veil and garter are displayed beautifully in the box. My husband was actually surprised. I was nervous about the process, but I'm glad I did it :)

When I went t0 my first fitting my grandmother insisted that I needed the preservation kit. At the time I wasn't sure what I was going to do with my dress after the wedding. I finally relented and she bought me the kit as a gift. I am SO happy that grandma got me the kit. The process is SO easy! I packed it up the day after the wedding and shipped it off. I got it back right after our honeymoon. It is beautifully packaged and looks like it will be safe in it's box for years to come!

Purchase this with your dress!
I was offered to purchase the preservation kit when I bought my dress but I declined, thinking I could have it done somewhere cheaper. I was SO wrong!
After our wedding, I began searching for places to take my dress. I found several places within the same price range but I couldn't find any reviews for the companies and they offered no warranty and no type of certification. I quickly contacted David's Bridal and purchased the kit.
I boxed my dress, veil, and handkerchief and sent it off. 3-4 weeks later it was delivered back to my doorstep. Beautifully presented and perfectly cleaned. I feel confident that if/when I pass it on to my future daughter, it will be exactly as it was on my wedding day.
I had no major stains in my dress, just normal wear and train dragging. You won't regret buying this kit if you plan to keep your dress!
