CLEAN ONLY 

There are several instances where a bride might want cleaning without preservation. The most common occurance is when a bride purchases a sample that needs some TLC before the big day. I've also had brides wear their gowns for multipe occasions and want cleaning between each. Sometimes my clients will not be keeping their gowns, but consigning or donated them instead. In this case, they forego preservation and opt for a restorative clean.
