I had my dress preserved through this company: http://www.gownpreservation.com/

It was like $200 I think to preserve and clean the dress.  I had my veil added in the box and they are sealed and wrapped in acid free paper.

If you want to preserve it, you probably want to clean it first because any food stains will set and eventually yellow.

I had mine professionally cleaned and preserved in a nice cotton-wrapped box. The cost was $750. It was a museum-quality preservation company and my dress was very badly soiled and difficult to clean, so I wanted to go with the best company I could find. They did a fantastic job but also said something very unkind to me that made me cry so I don’t like to put the name out there. PM me if you would like the name.

I agree with @missasb and @egb…I wanna do it for $300 or less!

I know that Davids Bridal offers one for about $180 and it looks similar to the link @missasb showed

Thanks for the post. I’ve been wondering the same thing.  My poor dress is stuffed in a big ‘ol cardboard box.
