What kind of stains can you remove from my dress?
Stains are inevitable no matter how hard you try to protect your wedding dress during the big day.

Part of our wedding gown dry cleaning process is to remove stains from dirt, blood, tar, grass, mud, cake, icing, alcoholic beverages, and soda.
What is perchlorethylene?
Perchlorethylene, better known as perc, is a colorless fluid most often used in the dry cleaning industry. This chemical can cause environmental and serious health problems depending on the amount of exposure. Memories Wedding Gown Preservation uses perc-free solutions to clean your wedding dress
