- White preservation chest (TL) vs. silver-tone preservation chest (CL)

IS MY GOWN SAFE DURING SHIPPING?
This is a common concern, as we know how precious your gown is to you. However, since a wedding dress is such a personal item, your gown is usually much more valuable to you than anyone else. As a result, it is very uncommon that a gown is ever lost or stolen. We utilize UPS who provides tracking information for shipping of your gown both ways. This way you will always know exactly where your dress is at all times. Insurance is also included in each package.
CAN I ADD MORE INSURANCE?
Yes. Additional insurance is available at checkout for $30 for each $1,000 of additional insurance you'd like to add. For example, to add an additional $2,000 of insurance to either package you’d select qty 2 for the insurance add on at checkout.
WHAT DOES 100 YEAR GUARANTEE COVER?
The 100 year guarantee protects your wedding gown against future yellowing for 100 years. In the rare instance that your gown should begin to turn yellow, simply contact the Wedding Gown Preservation Company and your wedding gown will be re-cleaned and preserved at no cost to you, including shipping.
CAN YOU SEND MY WEDDING GOWN BACK TO A DIFFERENT ADDRESS?
Absolutely. When you receive your wedding gown preservation package you'll have a 3-part order form that will allow you to specify the address to have your cleaned and preserved gown returned to within the continental US. If you need your gown returned to an Alaska, Hawaii, APO or FPO address there is a $60 shipping surcharge. There is no additional charge for gowns delivered back to the lower 48 states.
WILL MY DRESS FIT IN THE PRESERVATION CHEST?
Yes, we have 3 different sizes of preservation chests to accommodate any size dress.
CAN YOUR COMPANY GET MY GOWN HEM COMPLETELY CLEAN?
Excessive soiling of the hem is very common and can usually be completely cleaned. However, each situation is different and much depends on the type of stain, the type of fabric, and how long it has been in the fabric. As a result, there is no guarantee the stains/dirt can be completely removed. The expert wedding gown specialists will carefully examine your gown once it is received. If for some reason your gown cannot be cleaned without compromising the fabric, you will be contacted, your gown will be returned to you, and you will receive a full refund.
