I really, really need to get my dress cleaned before the stains set, but I’m not having any luck finding reviews online… google searches; nor Yelp.
Any good recs? I’m looking for either national/ship-the-dress cleaners or cleaners in Virginia…

Ask your bridal store where they recommend.

David’s Bridal uses some place in Texas that specializes in wedding dresses specifically. They box the dresses up so they are preserved too. $100 or so which is decent compared to what a dry cleaner will do.
I have not shipped my dress out yet as I plan to put it back on for our first anniversary. Just for fun. 🙂

The salon where I bought my dress recommended The Wedding Gown Preservation Company. It is based out of NYC. I paid kind of a lot but my dress came back totally perfect and all boxed up. This company mends any damage before cleaning and each gown is hand washed and then preserved. Apparently some of the less expensive companies wash multiple gowns altogether in a machine and don’t always repair any damage to beading, etbeggfore the preservation process is started. I went through the salon but it looks like you can go through the company too.
The website is glow preservation.com

I got lucky. My aunt owns a dry cleaner so she did it for me.

I went to a trusted dry cleaner. She does everything but the wedding gowns on premise and I trusted her.
I had two dresses and sent one in right away. I’ve already worn both again, so both went back in and I’ll be picking them up tomorrow.
Where are you in Virginia? The only thing I’ve heard is that Imperial in Fairfax, which claims to be the pick of top designers, is bad news.

1 hour martinizing! They did a great job, and it was only $300!
