Wedding Dress Care & Tailoring
Your wedding dress represents one of the most important days of your life, and the right seamstress is just as important as the right wedding cake. W&W Dry Cleaning has the expertise to make sure everything about your dress is perfect – whether that means making alterations to your gown, repairing an heirloom dress or even preserving the dress from your wedding.

No matter the style or material of your wedding gown, W&W Dry Cleaners will tackle size adjustments, create or remove bustles, and raise or lower hems. We can modernize a dress worn by your mother or grandmother, too! Multiple layers, different fabrics and one-of-a-kind decorations and accoutrements make wedding gown construction dauntingly complex, but our decades of experience make us the trusted name among brides. We’ll clean and press your dress after alteration to ensure it’s perfect for your big day.
Wedding Dress Preservation
Our unique, museum-quality, nine-step process for wedding gown preservation has earned W&W Dry Cleaners a national reputation. We’ll hand-clean, press and package your gown to ensure it remains as beautiful as the day you wore it for generations to come. Our process, which we’ve worked tirelessly to perfect, includes:
- Examining the gown for obvious areas of attention, such as loose hems
- Using an ultraviolet lamp to find stains invisible to the naked eye, such as cake icing or champagne
- Cleaning each stain individually
- Making textile and ornamentation repairs
- Pressing and ironing the gown by hand, carefully following the designer’s lines
- Inspecting the dress to ensure it’s in the best possible condition
Got your wedding gown just the way you want it? All you need now is to make sure it makes it to your special day in pristine condition. W&W Dry Cleaners will press out any creases or wrinkles from fittings or shipping, ensuring the dress looks exactly as you imagined it would.
The same techniques we use to restore vintage couture garments and wedding gowns can be applied to your antique linens, tapestries, upholstery, even vintage toys and dolls. W&W Dry Cleaners can brighten vintage furnishings that have yellowed or faded, remove stains on delicate textiles, and restore nearly any antique textile, regardless of material. We thoroughly test cleaning methods to ensure the best possible results without damaging ancient fabric, and will provide estimates free of charge when consulting on a vintage restoration project.
