Hello, ladies! I’ve done a search on this, but only found old reviews. Since I’m interested in recent experiences…
Have an of you recent brides had your dress cleaned? Would you recommend your cleaner? If so where and how much did it run you?
I am looking to sell my dress, so preservation is not required.
Also, I’m in Virginia – so if you have a Northern Virginia or Charlottesville (or anywhere in between) cleaner, I’d love to hear about it.
Online cleaning services as well…

Any online vendor recommendations? :-/

@HereWeGo: Bummer! I’m really interested in knowing too! I got married in late October and the dress has just been sitting there with some mud and grass stains.
In the Philly area cleaning and preservation start around $300 from places that are a bit more well known. I’m seriously considering Affordable Preservation Company. Their FAQ section is fairly thorough. From what I’ve read on forums here and reviews on Wedding Wire it seems to be a decent choice. However, most online companies seem to do cleaning and preservation. I don’t see options for just cleaning, but it would probably be worth asking. Other companies I saw were WedClean and Davids Bridal. All 3 are between $149-$189 which seems like a steal compared to what I was getting quoted locally.
Sorry I can’t be of more help. Hopefully this bumps the thread and someone else can shed some more light!
