Hi, my name is Bev Zambino and as a woman owned and operated business I understand how you might feel about getting your wedding dress or your daughter’s dress cleaned and preserved. It can be scary sending off such an important memory of your special day to a company hundreds of miles away. Knowing we personally care about how your dress is treated and processed can help to alleviate some of those fears for you. Every month, hundreds of mothers and daughters just like you trust us to clean and preserve their wedding dresses – you can check out their testimonies and our BBB rating.

Here’s why you can trust us.

Whatever reason you have to clean and preserve your wedding dress you want to know you can trust the company who will do that for you.

BridalKare started as a local dry cleaner over 125 years ago. I represent the 5th generation of our Family Owned and Operated Business.  We have grown into an Award Winning, Nationally Recognized Wedding Dress Cleaning and Preservation Company.

We have achieved this by treating each and every Wedding Dress entrusted to us by Mothers and Brides Like You, as the Unique and Cherished Heirloom that it is.  We clean and preserve hundreds of gowns per month. Yet each dress is still hand inspected, individually cleaned and then individually hand inspected again.

Your dress will go through our 11 step wedding dress preservation process that we exclusively developed. Over the years our family has developed unique gentle chemicals and careful methods to remove even the most stubborn stains. Because of that 125 years of expertise, we can remove grass stains, perspiration stains, asphalt parking lot oils, champagne stains – just about any stain you can imagine without any damage to your delicate bridal fabrics.

Because of our Exclusive and Proprietary Cleaning and Preservation Process we are the ONLY company to offer you a Lifetime Guarantee against stains re-appearing and fabric yellowing. (read about our lifetime guarantee -here.)

We use our exclusive 11 step process to make sure your cleaned and preserved wedding dress looks as beautiful as the day you purchased it.

1. When your wedding dress arrives at the BridalKare plant it is checked in, registered and then thoroughly inspected for stains and repairs.

2. Your gown is then hand cleaned along the hem, neckline and underarms. In addition to being experts at removing dirt, mud, grass-stains, asphalt parking lot oil and other stains from the hem, we also pay particular attention to removing all of the make-up, deodorant and perspiration stains as well.

3. Your dress will then be thoroughly inspected with a black light to reveal any hidden stains. All stains and spots are specifically treated to gently remove them from your gown. Our “anti-sugar” treatment removes all sugar stains (usually caused by wines, sodas, or cake frosting) and keeps them from returning and yellowing over time.

4. Your wedding gown is then individually cleaned. We use a more expensive “Stoddard” solvent which is environmentally friendly and gentler on the fabrics rather than the perchloroethylene which dry-cleaners and other preservation companies use. Our exclusive cleaning process also keeps your wedding dress from yellowing.

5. A complete and thorough re-inspection then takes place. If any problems remain the gown is re-processed.

6. Any needed repairs are made. (minor repairs are done free – other companies will charge you extra for this service)

7. Your gown is then individually steamed and hand pressed. It is also individually dried to make sure all moisture is gone from the dress fabric.

8. Your gown’s bodice is shaped and put on an acid-free bust form for display so you’ll be able to see how beautiful it is – just like the day you purchased it.

9. The bodice and skirt are layered with acid free tissue paper to protect it.

10. Your dress is then carefully placed in an acid free windowed display box and completely sealed to keep the moisture from the outside humidity out, and also to eliminate mold spores, and dust. (Moisture in the box/fabric can cause mildew) It’s also important to provide this sealed barrier to keep insects from getting in and nesting in your dress.

(10a.) (Because our preservation box is sealed for added protection, it means the guarantee is voided if you break the seal to open the box.  You don’t want to lose the added benefits of that protection, but you may want to make sure your dress has all of the stains removed and it’s properly cleaned.  So you don’t have to just rely on our 125 year family business reputation we are happy to send you actual pictures of your cleaned and pressed dress.  Simply include a request for dress pictures – when you send your dress to us to be processed – and our staff would be happy to take several pictures of your dress after it’s been cleaned and presses and then email them directly to you.  No other company offers this type of service!)

11. The windowed preservation box is placed inside a white storage box and then both of these boxes are placed inside a protective shipping box and shipped pre-paid to you via UPS.
