About Orange Restoration Labs

. . . because you love your gown! Before or after your wedding, you can trust Orange Restoration Labs to give very special care to your very special gown. If your gown needs pressing or cleaning and mending before the wedding, call us. When we clean your gown after the wedding, you are invited to inspect it, and then, while you watch, your gown is layered with acid-free tissue and folded into a museum-quality, acid-free wedding chest. Our preservations include a written international guarantee that your gown will not yellow or have caramelized sugar stains, white gloves for safe handling, and pressing at no charge when your gown is to be used again. Orange Restoration Labs also offsets all carbon emissions with donations to Carbonfund.org so your gown preservation is a green gown preservation, too.


Experience
For more than thirty years, former museum curator Sally Lorensen Conant, Ph.D., has used her conservation expertise to care for your precious family gowns and linens, and h
er award-winning service has been recognized by the International Drycleaners Congress.

    Beautiful Work!

    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.

    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 family
