Message from the Founder
Not until months after the wedding butterflies had settled and the last champagne bottles had been put away did it even cross my mind that my wife’s wedding dress had still not been cleaned and preserved. We were still spinning from all the wedding festivities and giddy from all the outpouring of love. When my wife pulled her wedding gown from the closet, we were both shocked. The red boa that one of her friends had draped over her shoulders during a speech had bled all over the dress.
I immediately brought the gown in to our Master Drycleaner, who has over 20 years of experience cleaning bridal gowns, and he assured me that he would make the dress look like new. Of course, I thought, that’s why you are the Master Dry Cleaner!
“As promised, he presented me with a skillfully cleaned wedding gown that looked like it did the day we bought it.”
At that moment, it occurred to me that no one (bride, or as in my case, groom), should have to undergo the distress of possibly losing the bridal gown and all the memories to damaging stains. Though we had been cleaning wedding gowns for years, I decided to create an official wedding gown cleaning and preservation program, Elegance Preserved” that would guarantee not only a beautifully cleaned and preserved gown, but peace of mind for the bride and groom.
“We even created a shipping program where we can pick up the gown from your home or your destination wedding so that you don’t have to worry about carrying it home.”
I am pleased to say that through our meticulous wedding gown cleaning and preservation program we were accepted into the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, an elite international association of professional dry-cleaners that have proven their dedication and talent in bridal gown cleaning and preservation. We are proud to be the only qualified member in the San Francisco area. And, as expected, our entire process is green.
Please call us at 800-539-9092 to setup a quote for services. We may be able to even pickup from your home, however, we always have shipping options as well. We welcome the opportunity to “preserve your memory”.
