by Janet Garman — VP , Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners
Every day we pass numerous cleaning establishments as we are out and about. However, none of them have been around as a family-run business for 100 years, or offer all that Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners does.
Today, many couples are opting for a Destination Wedding, and with that comes the logistics of transporting many elements to the destination spot, including the wedding dress. Do you know how to properly pack your gown for the trip? Do you know how to get it there in the condition that will allow it to look fresh and beautiful for your Reveal? Most girls will place it in a garment bag and hope for the best, then settle for whatever it looks like when it arrives. As members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners has the training and tools to make sure your wedding gown looks fresh and unwrinkled for your ceremony. Their wedding gown packing service for destination weddings is just one of the unique services Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners offers couples preparing to tie the knot or for those who have already celebrated their big day.
After the wedding, get your dress to a fabric care professional as soon as possible. Why? Stains such as sweat and champagne aren’t visible immediately, they develop over time. Make sure that if the hem of your dress is damp or if something was spilled on the front of it, that you hang the dress to completely dry. Don’t bunch it up and place it into a bag when damp, because mold will form.
Maybe hint to your attendants, family, or friends that a thoughtful idea would be a Gift Certificate towards the cleaning and preservation of your gown.
Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners is constantly updating the best practices for preserving your precious keepsake. Their preservation service includes packing and storing your cleaned gown in a museum-quality, neutral-pH, acid, and lignin-free box. Muslin is laid in the bottom of the box under your dress. Archival tissue prevents the fabric of your gown from yellowing and wrinkling. After the box is closed, it is placed in a muslin cover that is personally monogrammed for you and includes your wedding date. You are encouraged to open the box periodically and are given a pair of cotton gloves to wear when handling the dress. The gloves prevent staining from your skin’s natural oils. Make sure you store your preserved wedding gown in a place where the temperature does not fluctuate drastically. Now it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
