I took my wedding gown, belt and veil to Dependable Cleaners to be preserved and am very happy with the result. I like the way everything looks in the chest. They were very helpful answering my questions and also gave me instructions for caring for my gown going forward. The price was affordable too! I recommend Dependable Cleaners if you're looking to have your wedding dress preserved!

I had my dress cleaned and preserved at Dependable Cleaners, and the people were so nice and great to deal with. My only complaint is that it was very, very expensive. It cost $460 to get my dress cleaned and preserved. They initially quoted me around $300, but then called me a week later to explain because of the fabric it would be more. The woman I spoke with was really nice, and even offered me a 10% off coupon (if you go online, there's a 10% off dress preservation coupon!). They said it would take about a month, but it ended up only taking about three weeks. They did a beautiful job on my dress and it's now in great condition (it had dirt and red wine on it, so I really wanted to have it cleaned quickly by a reputable place).

One of the best decisions I made leading up to my wedding was contacting Dependable Cleaners and working with Elton on the restoration of my wedding dress. I desperately wanted to wear my grandmother’s wedding dress that was hand sewn for her in the early 1950’s and was then worn by my aunt in the 1970’s and my mother in the 1980’s. As you would expect the dress had yellowed over the years, and also had 30 year old stains from the last time it was worn. I was incredibly nervous about bringing this family heirloom to be cleaned since one wrong move could ruin the delicate lace. When I met with Elton he assured me that before he did anything on the dress he would test out the fabric and call me with his recommendations. After speaking with him I felt confident that he would be able to keep the dress intact while getting it restored and the results were incredible! The dress was almost like new and looked absolutely amazing. I am forever grateful to Elton for making my dream of wearing my grandmother’s wedding dress come true. Thank you, Elton!
