Your wedding day was the best day of your life and will leave you with precious memories for years to come. However, your precious wedding dress also lived your best day right there with you, but may not be quite so keen to retain the memories of your big day.
We are talking about those grass stains, red wine stains, sauce, gravy or grease splashes, spilt cocktails, perfume, mascara and make-up residue from the endless tear-stained hugs from family and friends, and even damage done to the hem of your dress by your high-heels while bopping the night away on the dance floor.
A lot of new brides would like to keep their wedding dress clean and well preserved for the future, and the best way to do this is to have it professionally dry cleaned by our experienced team at American Dry Cleaning.

Special treatment for wedding dresses
Wedding dresses are usually top-quality garments that use natural fabrics and natural materials for buttons, such as bone or shell. These natural materials can be brittle and can easily chip or crack, even while the dress is being worn.
Buttons made using natural materials can be expensive to replace, so it’s better not to damage them in the first place and this is why we will remove any buttons that we think may be damaged during the dry cleaning process but don’t worry – we will replace these for you after your dress has been cleaned.
Wedding dress dry cleaning is a very gentle yet effective way to lift out difficult stains like champagne, red wine and other food or drink stains. We don’t use harmful chemicals in our dry cleaning processes so your dress fabric will be preserved in fantastic condition.
After being carefully dry cleaned, your wedding dress will be hand-pressed by our skilled pressers and your dress will be returned to you in a protective garment bag or wedding dress box.
