Museum quality wedding dress preservation

Museum Method™ Wedding Gown Preservation

Museum Method™ wedding dress preservation is most similar to the preservation method fine museums use for storing heirloom dresses. With Museum Method™ bridal gown preservation, your cleaned gown is hung on our special "shoulder size" hanger made from 100% cotton. Acid free tissue fills in the bodice area, removing creases and giving added support to your gown. Our natural, un-dyed cotton bag covers your preserved gown.

We include a custom label on the pocket of your bag with names of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding. There is also a large pocket on the back of the bag to keep a photo of your wedding.

Benefits to Museum Method™ Preservation

  • Your gown is easily accessible! You can inspect your gown to ensure that it has been cleaned to your satisfaction and admire it any time you like.

  • Your dress is protected from damage from wrinkles and creases. Fabric, like paper, is weakened from folding, often resulting in tears or permanent creases. With Museum Method creases and wrinkles are almost non-existent!

  • Your dress is protected from acid migration. The acid-free tissue absorbs acid which could damage your gown.

  • Your dress fabric can breathe! Museum conservators all agree that heirloom garments need to breathe. Our cotton cover does not seal in any moisture or chemicals, thus reducing the risk of damage from mildew or chemicals.

  • Your dress is protected. Our garment bag is made from natural, acid-free cotton, the first choice in preservation for centuries. Our bag has no zippers that could snag or rust. It also has a pocket in front to keep the cotton gloves that we include. (You should wear these gloves any time you would like to inspect your dress.) Another larger pocket is on the back of the garment bag. This pocket is for you to keep a photograph of your wedding and a written story of your special day.

  • Your preservation bag is personalized with a custom label which includes the bride and groom's name, wedding date and location married on it.

Museum Method™ Preservation will keep your bridal gown in better condition than boxing or sealing it.
