Easy Wedding Gown Restoration with Meurice Garment Care of New York

The dry cleaning business doesn’t generally lend itself to moments of outpouring emotion or tears of unrestrained joy.  As a rule, it’s not really a profession where we’re required to keep a box of Kleenex handy, that is, unless wedding gown restoration is involved.

Wedding gown restoration is some of the most rewarding work we do.  There’s always a sentimental story that comes with an antique or vintage gown.  People bring in their gowns, in various stages of distress, their eyes filled with hope.  Usually, they’re afraid their gowns are beyond repair.  I’ve had more than one bride tell me that she thinks it will take “a miracle” to turn her mother’s yellowed, brittle dress into the flowing, white gown she’d envisioned.

We don’t consider ourselves miracle workers.  But some of our customers do.

“…From the moment I walked in the store I knew I brought my mother’s dress to the right place. They made me feel very comfortable leaving something that meant so much to me in the hands of strangers and I could not wait to see what it would look like after restoration. Marc from Meurice was in constant contact via email with me and I felt like he was my personal friend walking me through this process. The dress only took 2 weeks to go from Tan to GORGEOUS.”  — Rachel (via City Search / New York)

We’ll make your old gown look like new.  Or, we’ll preserve your new gown for a future bride.  And we’ve learned to keep the Kleenex handy in every one of our New York locations.

Just look at what Martha Stewart has to say about our wedding gown services.
