In our internet obsessed world, even you wedding dress can be preserved online. Most online companies who offer these services work the same.  You simply register and pay online, they send you a kit to box up your gown, and in a few weeks you get your gown back fully preserved! Make sure to do your research before mailing off your dress.  We recommend using The Knot, they just recently launched this service, and are a trusted name in the wedding world.

Another option is your local dry cleaners. Many local company can help with cleaning your dress from any wear that occurred throughout the day. Just know that while they do have experience with cleaning and getting out tough stains, their services may fall flat when it comes to full scale preservation. Make sure you ask lots of questions and read reviews online before handing over your gown.  Our favorite local dry cleaner in Charlotte to have this done is Cunningham Cleaners.
