Looking for recommendations for a DC metro area cleaner for my lace wedding gown. I’ve gotten quotes from J Scheer in NYC and Imperial Gown Restoration in VA, and both run in the $500 range. Since I’m selling my dress, it seems a little crazy to pay so much money to get it cleaned, particularly when it really isn’t dirty other than the train being a bit dingy. Any leads greatly appreciated!

My mom has told me that this is apparently THE place to get your wedding dress cleaned in the DC area: http://parkwaydrycleaning.com/html/Services/WeddingGowns.html. I would note as a caveat, however, that she doesn’t remember why she knows that, and I’m not sure she’s had any experiences with them. The website has a $50 off coupon, but does say that the cleaning will range from $300-650, so I’m not sure if this is what you’re looking for. Good luck!

Thanks Emily. I called Parkway and they quoted me $500, so even with the $50 coupon it’s still pretty steep. Grrr…decisions, decisions….

This doesn’t really help, as I was going to recommend Parkway too. They do excellent work. As a suprise I got my mom’s 35 year old wedding dress cleaned for her. It had yellowed, had red wine stains, cigarette burns, etc. and Parkway removed all of them.
