    Choose a professional cleaners, you don’t necessarily have to go with a gown preserver, but you could take your dress in and ask for a quote, find out a bit about their business.  I worked at a bridal store, and one of my brides was from a family that had a dry-cleaning business.  They were fantastic, gave me a ton of tips for how to keep things.  Check Yelp and Google for reviews, as well.

    I went on my cities community forum and asked which dr cleaner to go to. People all agreed on one and so I went there. They are just a local dry cleaner but they do a good job of wedding dresses, packing them appropriately for storage too.

    i’ve been married for over a year and still haven’t had my dress cleaned! i want to do do another wedding photo shoot at the beach, so that’s partly why i haven’t done it- no sense in cleaning it if it’s just going to get dirty again. and also, i know it’s going to be expensive. i looked into one dry cleaner just out of curiosity and their prices start at $75 depending on the fabric and the details of the dress. my dress is all lace with a lot of beading/sequins and appliques, so i know it’s going to cost a pretty penny.
