Make sure the beauty of your wedding gown will last forever, too.
Former museum curator Sally Lorensen Conant, Ph.D., President of Orange Restoration Labs and Executive Director of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, knows every bride wishes her wedding day could last forever. “We can’t make that happen,” says Sally, “but you can trust Orange Restoration Labs to give your beautiful bridal gown the care it deserves so your bridal gown will last a lifetime or more. We also know how important personal service is to you, and we are willing to drop everything we are doing to take care of wedding day emergencies--even on weekends and holidays.”

Sally is a Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ and her trademarked MuseumCare™ preservations include:
Anti-Sugar Stain Treatment
Environmentally-Pure, Lasting Protection
Every wedding gown is handcleaned and treated with an anti-sugar stain process to remove latent stains that turn an ugly brown over time. After cleaning you personally inspect your bridal gown. Then watch while your bridal gown is layered with acid-free tissue to buffer the folds and placed in a completely acid-free, archival-quality wedding chest with an acid-free, chemically-inert plastic window for viewing the treasured symbol of your marriage vows.
Your written international guarantee that your bridal gown will not yellow or be spotted with caramelized sugar stains is honored by members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists represented in more than 500 cities around the world. When your wedding gown is to be worn again, just return it to any participating Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ who will inspect and press your wedding gown at no charge.
And now when you choose us to give your beautiful gown the care it deserves, you also choose to help safeguard the future of our planet as well. We offset all carbon dioxide emissions that result from the process of cleaning and preserving your wedding gown with our donations to Carbonfund.org, the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solutions organization, and Carbonfund.org uses our donations to help fund reforestation projects around the world. Certified Wedding Gown SpecialistsTM are the first in the industry to offer carbon-neutral wedding gown cleaning and wedding gown preservation, and our ZeroCarbonTM gown preservations are unique.
