Wedding gown cleaning
After wearing my wedding gown for my small intimate wedding ceremony this year, my dress had dirt stains on the bottom of the dress. Because I will be wearing it again next year for my larger ceremony, I needed my dress cleaned, and I am so happy I found Orange Restoration labs. My dress was cleaned in a reasonable amount of time and it looks as good as new. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to have their wedding gown cleanedSent on 01/05/2021
Orange Restoration Labs's reply:Such a lovely review, thank you! Hope your second event this year happens exactly as planned--and that we will see you again afterward!

My grandmother gave me her veil from the sixties to wear at my wedding. I was unsure wear to take it because it is an heirloom.
One of the vintage wedding dress boutiques I shopped at recommended Orange Restoration, and I also saw the listing in a Connecticut wedding magazine. So I reached out via email.
Sally got back to me right away, and I brought her the veil the following week. She took care of the veil within a few weeks and she did an AMAZING job. There is no sign of the discoloration it had when I brought it to her, the veil is steamed free of wrinkles, and for an additional $25 she secured the veil to a metal comb for me.
Sally does beautiful, painstaking work and I would recommend her to anyone.Sent on 12/05/2020
Orange Restoration Labs's reply:Your veil is a lace called Princesse--probably made in Belgium--and I love working with this type of lace. Thanks so much for trusting me with such a special veil.

PERFECT, Impeccable Wedding and Gown Cleaning- LIKE NEW!!!
I trusted Orange Restoration with 100% confidence and am indebted for beyond exceptional cleaning/preservation results for 2 wedding gowns (1 to save for 2021, 1 -5 yrs old) and 4 bridesmaid gowns! The stains from an outdoor beach wedding and few 'dancing tears' vanished and each dress is better than brand new! Sally's lifetime expertise and experience, well beyond wedding gown restoration; restoring very old museum relics supported by her specialized PhD in a previous life and team's results driven proficiency based upon the latest science and evidence provides an unsurpassed foundation for perfection! Most importantly, Sally genuinely cares about each family and dress, co-inspected each dress with me and customized packaging for re-use or preservation. Her home office is warm; welcoming each patron as if they are her extended family- well beyond others in traditional settings. THANK YOU!!!!!!! Caroline and extended familySent on 12/03/2020
