Wedding Dress Cleaning, Preservation & Alterations
In an instant, your big day is over, but your wedding dress, if properly preserved, will last forever for you to treasure. It may even be worn by a future bride in your family. Even if you aren’t sure whether you want to preserve your gown, wedding dress cleaning is essential. Although these gowns are only worn for one day, they can acquire significant soiling from champagne, frosting, and dirt, not to mention perspiration from dancing the night away.
Professional wedding dress cleaning is necessary even if you don’t see any visible stains. Sugar from the cake might not be visible to the naked eye, but if allowed to remain on the gown, it will turn brown over time. Other unseen stains will oxidize over time and turn an unsightly yellow. Fortunately, you can avoid these problems by requesting professional wedding gown cleaning from our experienced team.
At Sparkle Cleaners, recognized by brides throughout the area as Tucson’s Best Wedding Dress Cleaner, we offer a full suite of wedding dress cleaning and preservation services.

Our wedding dress cleaning processes are safe for all dress types, both young and old. We start with a thorough inspection of your gown to determine the cleanability of your dress as well as the extent of the current damage (if any) from the wedding day. We look for loose threads, damaged or missing beading, holes and tears, and soiling prior to beginning our thorough wedding gown cleaning process.
WEDDING GOWN PRESERVATION
After Wedding – Our preservation services include wedding gown cleaning. Your dress will be given a special anti-sugar treatment to prevent caramelized sugar stains. Then, it will be carefully cleaned, pressed, and packaged in a preservation chest for long-term storage. This process protects the dress from oxidation and caramelized sugar stains, ensuring its brilliance for years to come! It’s best to store your preserved wedding dress in a cool, dry environment without light.
Before Wedding – Your dress will be hand-steamed and/or pressed to rid the dress of wrinkles and creases from manufacturing, sampling, alterations, and shipping. This service should be performed before the big day to ensure that your dress looks as beautiful as when it was brand new.
