Even if it’s been dry-cleaned, storing your wedding gown at home can cause accelerated aging, discoloration, and damage from moisture, humidity, sunlight and more. Keeping your dress in a basement risks your dress being infested by pests. Not to mention that many of our clients simply don't have the space to properly store their dress.
Yes, but we'll take care of that for you! The $250 first-year fee for Save to Transform service includes our white-glove Prep & Clean service.
We know taking your dress out of the storage box can be intimidating, but we promise it will be okay. Our waterproof, lockable, and insured DressBox is the most secure way to send us your dress. And it's often more affordable than shipping a large preservation box.
We love them too! And want nothing more than for your wedding day accessories to remain safe with your wedding dress. We allow up to 5 bridal accessories to be stored with your dress. Consider sending your veil, headpiece, gloves and belt (no shoes please).
