A great experience for a special memory!
When I was first looking for a restoration venue to clean and pack away my dress, I didn't have to shop far. I was very impressed with the reviews on Orange Restoration Labs and when I reached out the response was immediate within 1 hour. The intake is done at her home and the dress is then taken to her store. It was ready within a few short weeks. I appreciated being able to look at the dress and inspect it before paying and before it was packed away. This ensured (1) it was done correctly, (2) it was my dress and (3) you see the care, time and dedication Sally uses for all dresses. It is her passion and while the price is a little high, it is worth the price.Sent on 10/31/2019
Orange Restoration Labs's reply:Thanks so much, Amanda. It's a beautiful gown, and the belt you added was the perfect touch! And your veil was the perfect one to go with the belt.

Restored my vintage tiara and evaluated my vintage wedding gown.
Orange Restoration restored my vintage tiara (circa 1957 from my parents’ wedding) so my daughter could wear it. This required cleaning the pearls, replacing missing rhinestones and re-shaping the crown. She did a wonderful job and took special care not to let the wire frame rust. I was very pleased with the results. She also evaluated my Mom’s wedding gown and gave her honest opinion that it didn’t need the color restored as it was in very good shape. I appreciated her honesty.Sent on 05/19/2019

Wedding gown is fully restored, beautiful again!
My daughter hoped to wear my mother's 75 year old wedding gown. The satin had darkened quite a bit but, it is sentimental for us. My older sister wore it, I wore it and now, my daughter will be the 4th bride to wear it.
Sally treated a matching headpiece first, to allay our fears about what the original color would look like. Sally expected candlelight white and she was absolutely correct. She restored the dress to its original beauty. We're delighted!Sent on 08/10/2019
Orange Restoration Labs's reply:I, too, was delighted to be part of your family's wonderful tradition. The gown is absolutely beautiful and very close to the style of today's gowns with sleeves. Thanks for trusting us to care for it.
Excellent and trustworthy service for wedding gowns and heirloom pieces
Orange Restoration really is the best in the industry! Don't trust your gown to just any dry cleaner- go to the best in the biz...and that is Sally at Orange Restoration Labs! You will be thrilled you did!
