Wedding Gown Preservation since 1999... 

It is such a privilege to preserve your special memories...

  1. We start with a meticulous inspection of treatment needed,
  2. We pre-treat all the soiled areas according to type of stain,
  3. Delicate decorations are protected, even removed when needed to prevent damage,
  4. Your gown is protected by being inserted in mash bags during the cleaning cycle,
  5. The gown is cleaned in our gentle, no harmful chemical cleaning cycle,
  6. We carefully steam your gown,
  7. We carefully place the gown into our acid free display box.

​Again, it is trully a privilege to provide bridal services A to P, Alteration to Preservation :)

Wedding Gown Preservation by mail:

  1. Take pictures of your gown, bustle down, showing soiled, stained areas,
  2. E-mail us the pictures and your shipping address at,  include fabric type and any questions you may have, 
  3. We will provide you with an exact quote to perform the preservation, including shipping charges.
  4. Carefully package your gown in a bag and box,
  5. Ship insured to Julius Alterations and Cleaners,  2031 Hwy 41, Mount Pleasant, SC, 29466. It is highly unlikely that a gown would get lost in shipping, however, please choose insurance wisely to cover any potential loss.
  6. We will give your gown the utmost in personal attention.

What to expect:

  1. Most soil(most of the times all) will be removed, however, we will stop short of damaging the fabric in the soil removal process.
  2. Your gown will be carefully cleaned and steamed, and will be in "like-new" condition, keep in mind gowns are manufactured from neatly pressed fabrics, however, after cleaning it is not possible to completely restore areas close to seams or with ruffles. Gowns cannot be restored to "new" condition...if that was possible a pre-owned gown would keep its new value forever. This note is specially important for the perfectionist who expects the gown to look as if it was never worn or cleaned :)
  3. Your gown will be beautiful, preserved in our acid free preservation box, or muslin bag depending on your request.
  4. We will ship your gown back to you within two weeks of arrival at our business.
