You’ve found the perfect wedding dress, you’ve had numerous fittings to make sure everything is perfect, and you’ll soon be wowing your friends and family as you walk down the aisle to begin your exciting future with someone special. But have you thought about what will happen to your most treasured keepsake from the most momentous day of your life?

Luckily, we’ve already thought about that for you and have partnered with to give TWO lucky brides a Celebrity Wedding Gown Preservation Kit, which ensures your dress stays as magnificent over the next years and decades as it did the day you first wore it. The invisible stains from your wedding day can be the most damaging to a delicate dress – sweat, dirt, and oils contribute to the yellowing of the fabric and wreak havoc on the dress’ fine fabrics.

The upgraded kit includes free shipping to the Wedding Gown Preservation Company where it receives a museum quality cleaning formulated for delicate fabrics (unlike a lot of those dry cleaners out there!), is checked for tears and missing beading, and returns the dress to you perfectly preserved and in family heirloom status in its very own preservation chest. Whether or not your future daughter or granddaughter wants to wear it on her wedding day is another thing. You can learn more about their sophisticated cleaning and preservation process at

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
