The amount that David's wanted to charge me wasn't much cheaper than what Margaret's Cleaners was going to charge me for alterations of my gown. However, I know the quality of work will be higher because only one person will be altering my gown, and it's the person who consulted with me during my initial visit. For that quality customer service, I'm definitely willing to spend a few more dollars.
My daughter wore my wedding gown. Margaret's altered the gown to fit today's styles. Our daughter's dress was spectacular! She looked like a princess on her special day!
Margaret's went above and beyond! They even touched up a few stains on my gown for free when
I took my wrinkly dress in to get steamed before the wedding :) Will be bringing it back for preserving!
Amy was wonderful and Margaret’s delivery service was a God send!! My daughters gown was pressed beautifully, packaged so it stayed spotless, and delivered to the venue so it remained wrinkle free!
Naomi Naomi Naomi! There are not enough words to thank you enough for the work you put into my wedding dress! My wedding dress was a 2 piece dress, long train satin skirt over a lace cocktail dress. I fell in love with the idea of having a surprise father-daughter dance where I would twirl and rip off my skirt to reveal my cocktail dress underneath and then break out into free dance with my dad before the guests joined in on the dance floor. To make this happen, my skirt had to be hemmed and bustled and extra clasps added to the top of the skirt to ensure a smooth reveal. My cocktail dress also had to be taken in around the bust, waist, and hips. Naomi worked her magic and the skirt held up throughout the ceremony and reception and came off effortlessly when it was time for the big surprise. Naomi was so patient with me and my mom as we discussed what we wanted with the dress and options and ideas on how to make the dress fit better without breaking the bank, like adding $15-20 bra cups to the dress to avoid having to deal with any bras or bra straps in general! I believe the prices at Margarets is definitely reasonable for the amount of time and effort Naomi puts into all her alterations. All in all my alterations came out to $520, but if you spend over $500 in alterations you get a free pressing before your wedding (a $220 value for my 2 piece dress). Honestly I thought pressing dresses before the wedding was maybe an expense I could cut, but thankfully I did not (and mine was included with my alteration) because pressing really does make a difference! Super happy with the service and workmanship at Margarets and will highly recommend Naomi to future brides!
The dress came back looking new. Great job.
Naomi was amazing! Did a terrific job on my grandmas wedding dress
It was expensive, but they gave me many discounts I was able to work with
This company does an AMAZING job! They did my wedding dress, my sister's, and my mother's, along with many other dresses for events. The price is well worth the quality!
Margarets is hands down the best location for everything bridal. Once you have found your gown and need alterations to make it your own, there is no question but using margarets. Naomi is their incredible seamstress and completely created my dream come true by tailoring it to me like a glove, she added rhinestones, heading, took it in, and added a petty coat underneath. After not getting my original gown from Alfred Angelo when they went bankrupt I had to find a gently used dress. Naomi completely made it brand new again and Amy from Margarets ensured it would be cleaned just like new (& of course it was!) my mother in law had her 5 layers of gown taken up and of course it was perfect too! After nearly 5 sessions of me wanting to continue to add to the dress Naomi continued her hardworking empathetic and sincere hard work and made all my dreams come true! My gown is now ready to be preserved and I would have no other company do this job! I am so happy with their services and will use them not for all things alterations, cleaning and preserving! So glad I found Margarets!
Very professional, I felt like my dress was in great hands!
I brought my husband’s late mother’s wedding gown to Margaret’s Cleaners in hope that it could be restored so our daughter could wear it for her wedding. The dress had been stored in a plastic bag in the back of the closet since 1954. The taffeta and particularly the decorative braid had yellowed with age and there were small tears at the bottom of the skirt and train. When I dropped it off, I was unsure what really could be done, if anything, to make it wearable and my expectations were maybe it could be cleaned to a wearable light ivory. The staff took the time to answer all my questions, explaining the process and what the outcomes might be with the different materials in the dress. I left feeling reassured and confident but was not prepared for the results when I picked up the dress. It was perfection – the dress and braid were brand-new white, the repairs invisible – it just bowled me over how wonderfully it had turned out! My daughter will be a beautiful bride in her grandmother’s dress – thank you Margaret’s Cleaners!
Naomi is amazing! She fit me in with a short time to alter my dress.
Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are beyond lucky to have Amy and Margarets in San Diego. Look no further!!!!!!!!!
I live in AZ and my wedding was in La Jolla. Margaret’s was amazing, letting me drop off my wedding gown 2 days before the wedding to be pressed and then they delivered it to my wedding site the morning of the wedding. They even would have allowed me to drop my dress off directly to the pressing site the day before the wedding had we not driven in any earlier. Their rate was also very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Margaret’s!
Wonderful and quality service!
I have wedding destination at Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego and rush order from Margaret. They did a great job. Delivery on time and my gown was perfect.
You provided a fantastic service! I bought a floor sample wedding dress and you made it look like new. The service was impeccable as well! Thank you!
Margaret's Cleaners did an incredible job with my wedding dress! We weren't able to drop it off until last minute and they didn't hesitate to stream it to perfection:) I will definitely be taking my dress back there for its much needed post-wedding cleaning:)
I used this cleaner for my used wedding gown. While their certainly is a price tag attached to this service, it was well worth it. They were able to get out all the stains and restore her back to new in a very tight time frame. They over came many obstacles in getting my dress back into perfect condition and I couldn't have been happier with the results!!!!
I brought my daughter's wedding dress to be pressed one week before her wedding. The designer's instructions said not to dry clean, steam or press directly with an iron so I was VERY NERVOUS but was assured they knew what to do so left the dress hoping for the best! The dress came back perfect and right on time!
It was a little pricey but worth every cent. And the staff there were delightful to work with. I will bring it back to be cleaned and preserved!
No advice, but you all wanted to take a picture of the 1920's wedding gown that you cleaned and preserved for us. You contacted us originally and said you wanted to show the gown on your website and then no follow up. We were told you wanted to show the wedding gown after it had been cleaned. We also have a picture of the wedding party and of course the bride in the gown....from the wedding.
I called and spoke with someone who was going to call me back...never heard a word. So???
I really valued this experience! You can certainly trust MarieAngel with your wedding gown. She was so honest about what adjustments to make and what could be left as is. I am so grateful for the perfect work she did!
Pricey but so professional. My dress did not cost a fortune but it still was a huge memory i wanted to preserve. During my engagement my mother brough out her wedding dress and we were both sad to see how much it has deteriorated. I knew i had to preserve mine. Margarets is expensive... my dress cost 3000 and was 600 to preserve but it has heavy detailing and a small red stain. The do everything on site the old fashioned way. They offer a lifetime warranty and place it beautifully in a box. They also cleaned it, replaced my missing bustle buttons, and some beading that i had lost prior to preserving it. If you are really serious about keeping your dress perfect forever, then invest in margarets!
Wow, wow, wow!!! The best place to get your cleaning done for your top-of-the-line [insert anything delicate].
Margaret's kindly picked up my finished gown from Beverly Hills boutique a week before my wedding, made the gown look 1000 times better, and dropped it off at my wedding venue a day before my wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing!!! Okay, it did cost a lot but it was worth every penny, especially since they picked it up all the way from LA and dropped it off in OC. My bridal boutique gave me the same quote without any delivery service. They also include steaming your accessories for this service, so I included my veil with this as well.
Seriously though, my wedding gown somehow transformed into a beautiful, perfect, piece of art. Everyone who had doubts of my wedding dress (including me) were stunned at this gorgeous dress after I got Margaret's service.
They also included an "Wedding Emergency Kit"- I didn't check it out yet because it wasn't necessary, but I'm sure it'll come handy for some people.
I'm not doing preservation with them, though. They gave me a very high quote, and it was not worth it for me to spend that much for the gown. I might not even keep mine.

Margaret's cleaners pressed and delivered my dress to my ceremony venue the morning of my wedding. They were reasonably priced and the delivery was prompt and professional. I would recommend them if you are worried about your dress being wrinkled before the big day.
