If the gown of your dreams is a family bridal gown that time has yellowed and stained, call us! We specialize in restoring antique gowns and vintage bridal gowns to the true color without damage to delicate fabrics or dyes. We remove stains and discoloration that ordinary dry cleaners cannot, and our restorations have been featured on television and in publications around the world.
Whether it is a family wedding gown or vintage veil or one of those special gowns you or someone in your family wore as a child, we can renew it for your special day. You can trust us to give your vintage wedding gown or family gown the care and attention it deserves.
When restored, vintage Brussels lace veils and vintage veils trimmed with Chantilly, Alençon, and other types of lace are lovely with today's bridal gowns. Most vintage lace is made from sturdy cotton that can be safely returned to the true color. Point de Gaze (also called Rosepoint) and Duchesse, for example, nearly always restore beautifully. So does Princesse lace. Newer veils from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s usually have borders of Alencon lace, and they, too, can restored and restyled for today's brides.
Some vintage lace is appliquéd onto silk illusion, which is often too fragile for restoration, but the lace can be restored and then sewn onto nylon or polyester net.
Not all brides choose to wear the original bridal tiara that is attached to the veil. You may prefer to remove the tiara from the veil and attach the restored veil to a comb. Or you may ask us to remove the lace from the tiara, restore it, and create a new ornament from the restored lace.
If you would like to honor a family member by including a treasured wedding accessory in your wedding, let us remove the ugly brown stains and yellowing from your vintage veil, ring pillow, or wedding pouch. Although not every vintage bridal veil, ring pillow, or wedding pouch can be restored, we can usually predict whether the project will be successful, and there is never a charge for evaluation.
