Wedding Dresses

Preserve your precious memories

Preens Dry Cleaners has many years experience in the specialised cleaning of wedding dresses. Your wedding dress will be inspected prior to cleaning to ascertain what treatment best benefits your dress. As the amount of work varies for each dress we will give you a quote before individual hand cleaning and stain removal will begin. We also offer the option of  boxing the dress in a especially designed acid free box.

Preens Wedding Dress Care

Few things are as cherished as a wedding dress. With the careful planning that goes into selecting the perfect dress, many brides choose to heirloom their dress as a keepsake. A properly cleaned dress keeps the dream alive of passing it down to a daughter or close family friend.

While a dress may be worn for just one day, and may not appear soiled, it will still require careful cleaning. Hidden soiling includes perspiration and body oils. Long dresses will pick up soil along the hemline and train and very likely, there will be food and beverage spills. Some stains, which are not immediately visible, will develop with age through oxidization causing discoloration, fabric weakness and damage to the dress.

At Preens Dry Cleaners we examine every dress, establishing the most suitable method of cleaning. Inspections are made at every stage of the cleaning and preservation process. Each wedding dress receives special attention given to every detail.

Here are a few examples:

  • Christening Dresses
  • Sports Uniforms
  • Military and Scouting Apparel
  • Baby Clothing
  • Flower Girl Dresses
  • First Communion Dresses
  • Flags and Banners

If it is important to you…your family…or your friends, it can be cleaned. And it can be done safely and economically.
