A BARGAIN OR A BUST: WHY YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR A GOWN PRESERVATION COMPANY WITH EXPERIENCE
Believe it or not, the cost of a gown preservation should not be the first thing you consider when choosing who to send your wedding gown to for preservation. You might have seen process up to $900.00, or even as low as around $100.00. But which is best? Do you get more bang for your buck with expensive services? To be honest, the most important thing to look for is experience, not price. Here is why.
Why Such a High Cost for Dress Preservation?
Even if you are paying hundreds of dollars more to get your dress preserved by a particular company, chances are you are not paying for anything extra, or any special treatment. Sometimes, dry cleaners may even overestimate the price because they have little to no idea about the process, or even the right equipment. They may be sending it elsewhere, as well. If you are dealing with a preservation company that has the right equipment, as well as years of experience, and satisfied customers, you have nothing to worry about, even if you are only paying a hundred dollars to have your dress preserved.
Look for Specialists
If you want the best deal, the best service, and honesty about the process, cost, and more when it comes to the preservation process, look for a company that only preserves wedding dresses. They have the experience, skills, equipment, and knowledge that you need to keep your dress looking great for years. Many of these companies have a large staff that painstakingly inspects, cleans, and preserves your gown to the best of their ability. Best of all, their prices may be much cheaper than some services or local dry cleaners because they know what they are doing, and have for years.
The Final Word
You may also want to take into account what going to a cleaner with little experience in cleaning and preserving wedding dresses may actually cost you years from now. You could possibly find that your dress, over the years, stains from improper or not thorough cleaning. Or, improper storage of the dress by the preservationist or cleaner may lead to the dress being misshapen, damaged from bugs or off-gassing of plastic, or even that some of the delicate materials have begun to fade, detach, or deteriorate. Going for experience can really pay off both in the short term and long term.
