Testimonials

Ablitt’s Made My Dress Look New!

I got married at a ranch and chose a dress with a lacy train- you only get married once! By the end of the night, the bottom of my dress was a mess. I didn't think it was repairable, but loved the dress so much that I wanted to at least TRY to preserve it. I took it to Ablitt's and they did an amazing job! They spent three days picking out all of the hay my dress had accumulated throughout the day and night. It looked practically new.
Thank you so much!

After Your Wedding Day

Bridal Gown Cleaning—We clean gowns according to standard museum-quality practices plus we take extra steps to be certain all stains, both seen and unseen, are removed because wedding day spills such as soda, wine and cake (many times caused by a guest and unnoticed by you) can dry without leaving a visible mark. These sugary stains, which are not dissolved during ordinary dry cleaning, will caramelize into ugly brown stains.

Bridal Gown Preservation—Turn the memory of your special day into an heirloom with the wedding gown preservation service you can trust–guaranteed! You can inspect your gown personally after cleaning and before it is carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an acid-free, archival-quality wedding chest that protects it from exposure to light and air. No chemicals are added, and our preservations are carbon-neutral. When your gown is to be used again, return it to any Association of Wedding Gown Specialists member in more than 500 cities around the world, and your gown will be inspected and pressed at no charge.
