Love is in the Air

February 13, 2023

Valentine's Day is a special day for couples in love, especially for those who have recently tied the knot. A wedding gown is often one of the most sentimental items from a wedding day, and preserving it is a meaningful way to keep the memories of the special day alive.

Wedding gown preservation is the process of cleaning and protecting the dress from damage, such as discoloration, yellowing, and fabric deterioration.  Experts recommend using acid-free materials, putting the dress in an archival preservation box, and storing the gown in a cool and dry place.


Be certain that your dress is clean before preserving. Foster-Stephens can provide all the materials you need to keep you precious gown safe throughout the years, but it can’t prevent stains if the gown is not clean.

It is also important to follow recommendations from conservation experts on how to care for your gown after it has been preserved. This may include avoiding exposure to light, humidity, and other environmental factors that can cause damage.  Remember to store your gown inside the living area of your house, not in the basement, attic or garage.

Overall, preserving your wedding gown is a beautiful way to honor the memories of your special day and ensure that your dress remains in pristine condition for years to come. Whether you choose to preserve your gown for sentimental reasons or to pass it down to future generations, it is a meaningful and timeless way to keep your wedding day memories alive.
