Wedding Gowns

Few things are as cherished as a wedding gown. Because of the careful planning that goes into selecting the perfect gown, after the wedding, most brides will choose to preserve their dress as a keepsake, with the hope of passing it down to a daughter or close family friend.

While a gown may be worn only one day and may not appear soiled, it will require careful cleaning. The gown is bound to be soiled to some degree by perspiration and body oils. Long gowns will also pick up soil along the hemline and train and there will likely be some food or beverage spills.

Some stains that may not be immediately visible will oxidize with age, quite possibly causing fabric weakness, discoloration, and irreversible damage to the gown.

Our wedding gown specialists carefully examine every gown, establishing the most suitable method of cleaning. Inspections are made at every stage of the cleaning and preservation process. Each wedding gown receives special handling, with attention given to every detail.

Traditional wedding gown boxes do not protect or guarantee against oxidation and yellowing of the gown. However, our advanced system is completely guaranteed against oxidation and yellowing.

Of course, if you wish to have other precious memorabilia or keepsake items preserved such as:

  • shoes
  • veil
  • garter
  • napkin, etc.
  • bouquet
  • ring pillow
  • invitation

Ram makes this option available so you can include such keepsakes with your dress in the hermetically sealed acid-free box. (Please send these or any articles you would like to preserve with your dress.)

THE PRESERVATION PROCESS

  • Your dress is hermetically sealed in an acid-free inner box that controls humidity.
  • The oxygen is removed and replaced with an inert gas, making oxidation virtually impossible.
  • The air-tight seal allows viewing of your gown and veil at any time.
  • The inner box is placed in a durable long-term storage chest for additional safety.
