Wedding Gown Preservation

Preservation: Preserving the delicate features of a fine wedding gown, or christening gown demands professional expertise. We at Carrington begin with a gentle cleaning from the top of the head-piece to the tip of the train. We check and repair any loose threads and ornaments, and then pack it in its own decrorative, archival-quality keepsake box – protection from the elements and even the effects of time itself. Keeping your wedding or christening gown safe and looking new for years to come. Preservation is a special type of storage that helps prolong the life of a garment for years and years. We often say that we aren’t just preserving a customer’s garment, we’re preserving a memory.

Restoration: In addition to preservation, we specialize in the restoration ofold wedding gowns, heirloom items, and antique textiles. These items often are very delicate and require great care. Restoration specialists have the expertise to take in these items, although the level they can restore them to depends on their condition at the time they are brought in. It is not uncommon for us to restore a wedding gown originally worn by a bride-to-be’s grandmother well enough that the bride can wear it in her own
