When I got back from my honeymoon and examined my dress from the wedding aftermath, I couldn't believe how filthy it was. I called and arranged for a time for Orange Restoration Labs to pick up the dress. They came and picked it up at a time that we arranged. I received a call from Sally a few weeks later to tell me my dress was done and to pick a time to pick it up that was convient for me. When I got there Sally had me look over my dress and I could not believe how clean it was! It looked exactly the way it did when I put it on to marry the man of my dreams! After I inspected the dress and gave her my approval she started to pack my dress and veil away in a box. As she did, we talked and laughed about a few topics including our beloved pets. It wasn't one of those awkward and quiet moments when you don't know what to say or do lol. I really enjoyed her company and was amazed by all the care she put into putting my dress into it's box with a window for viewing. She also put in a pair of white gloves so I can take my dress out whenever I wanted! Sally is very dedicated to her work and is very talented! I am very pleased with her services! I already have and will be recommending her to all my friends and family getting married.

INCREDIBLE experience with Orange Restoration Labs!

I decided that I wanted to wear my mother's beautiful vintage wedding dress for my wedding! My mom got married in 1984 and the lace/satin dulled and changed color over the years. I was very concerned about finding someone who specialized in dress restoration and would treat the dress with the care, respect, and attention to detail I felt the dress deserved. Well, let me tell you....Sally did an incredible job. The dress was restored beautifully. She is responsive, professional, and meticulous. I can't recommend her enough to restore, preserve/clean your treasured dress.

The best restoration & services around

Orange Restoration removed make-up stains on the back of my wedding dress. I had no hope of them coming out. Sally was responsive, quick and very helpful! She got the stains out and the dress looks AMAZING. I would highly recommend Orange Restoration!
