Why is it Important to Preserve Your Wedding Gown?
The wedding gown is a solid memory of that special day when you and your loved one eternally seal the deal. Hence, decades later when you look at that wedding dress, and it is exactly the way it looks as of today. So, imagine thirty or forty years later, the pure nostalgia will take you back to that beautiful day again! Furthermore, when we talk about preserving a wedding dress, technically we are slowing down the nature of the deterioration process scientifically. This is to say, preserving your wedding gown will protect it from:
Definitely, you don’t want that yellowing from age or those ghastly spots from natural oxidation tampering with such a special memory!
When Should I Preserve My Wedding Dress?
You should preserve your wedding dress as soon as possible, otherwise, it may fall victim to oxidation. While the tropical climate in Singapore is very humid, average humidity of 70%-80% will surely induce one of a wedding gown’s biggest enemies: mildew and mould. Nevertheless, as many celebrate exceptionally on their special day, it is nearly impossible to keep a wedding gown stain-free. Sometimes, even if the gown appears clean, there are stains such as sweat or white wine that will oxidize over time.
On top of that, this leaves a permanent stain, ultimately ruining your dress. To illustrate this further, we are able to spot the invisible stains with professional tools during the first inspection process for your gown. So, if you would like to preserve your precious gown, time is precious and you should act now. Ultimately, the sooner we treat the stains, the better chance we get to remove them.
Wedding Gown Storage Tips
Sadly, most dry cleaners use plastic bags to wrap up a wedding gown after cleaning. Indeed, it provides an assumption that the plastic bag is protecting the gown. Well, yes, it is, from liquids and other various messes during transportation. However, the actual plastic that protects your precious gown can also cause permanent yellow stains over your entire gown when you store it for the long term. Meaning to say, a plastic wrap will trap moisture inside your gown and encourage mould and mildew to grow. In summary, the proper way to store your gown is to preserve it in an acid-free and breathable environment to slow down the degeneration process.
If I could give Reward Laundry six stars or more, I absolutely would. They dry cleaned 2 wedding gowns for me. Both times, every single stain was completely removed, including fake tan, mud and alcohol. The tailoring on my dresses was immaculate after the cleaning and Reward Laundry even removed dirt from one of my wedding dresses which the previous dry cleaner had told me was impossible to remove.
Price-wise, Reward Laundry are super competitive, especially when you factor in the collection and return of your items for home. The delivery is organised very quickly once you get in touch. They’re also very organised, sending photos of the dress before and after the cleaning as a record, along with any areas of damage. Highly, highly recommend this firm for your wedding gowns. A consistently fabulous job.
This place is really good. I was so scared to clean my wedding dress cause it is handmade just for me, and I checked a lof of placed before but almost every place has bad reviews. I’m quite happy, I found Reward Laundry! Dry cleaning was not expensive and quite fast (6 days). Stong recommend!
I came here for my wedding dress alteration and also had it laundered and pressed. Service is extremely efficient and professional. I was worried I did not have enough time as I came in the 2nd or 3rd week of April and my wedding would be in the 1st week of May. Emilyn was overseeing the process from the beginning and I am so thankful for her!
Substantial alterations had to be done since the dress was too large on me, and the seamstress (Annie?) also pointed out that the dress was slightly “slanted”. Additionally the lace had to be lifted in order to reach the seams, so I understand substantial work was done. Everything was done within 2 weeks, and an appointment fixed for me to return to try it on to my satisfaction. Indeed I was very satisfied.
Emilyn was also kind enough to highlight to me that there were some marks / stains on the bottom of my dress and suggested it get laundered for my big day. Was more than happy to let The Alteration Studio handle it. It would only take 1 week and to my surprise, Emilyn was so kind as to arrange for a courier to deliver it to my front door instead of having me struggle with the long dress on public transport.
I also brought another item which needed a zip replacement and they replaced with with a zip so smooth and the sewing was so well done you couldn’t tell it was a replacement.
Price wise I would not complain because the quality (and quantity) of work done is commensurate to the price paid. I had contemplated going to another alteration shop in Far East Plaza but I am so glad that I decided to come here instead!
During my 2 fitting sessions, I saw the way Emilyn handled all the customers and indeed it was very busy. But she handled all very well and efficiently without breaking a sweat, and all customers seemed to be happy with the service and there were more than a few who were obviously repeat customers.
Even before sending my wedding dress for laundering, Emilyn took a video to show me! That is top notch customer service.
101% would come back here again, and I will definitely be recommending all my friends, families and colleagues to come here too.
My beautifully beaded dress with a 2-meter train was well-loved and needed some dry-cleaning, and Reward Laundry cleaned this dress in a speedy, effective, and yet professional manner! Pick-up, cleaning, and drop-off was all done over exactly 7 days, and they turned my dusty old-looking dress into a brand new dress.
They first made sure to review the dress to check for damages, and then asked if I wanted repair before getting my approval to go ahead with dry-cleaning. When it came back, it was hung on a sturdy wooden hanger and kept neatly in a simple, clear plastic packaging that is sufficient for keeping dust out. I am very pleased with their service and will recommend them to people!
Reward laundry was very prompt in responding to my order and had great flexibility to accommodate to my special requests. The driver engaged was very efficient and professional. Overall, the service provided was good and the whole process was seamless and efficient.
Brought my muddy wedding dress back to brilliant white- good as new thank you!
I needed a pretty complicated alteration and redesign on my lace wedding dress. I was put to ease and I felt totally confident in the amazing ladies who worked so meticulously to make sure my dress was perfect. WOW! What a gem of a place I have found! I will use them for everything in the future guaranteed!
