  • After wearing my wedding gown for my small intimate wedding ceremony this year, my dress had dirt stains on the bottom of the dress. Because I will be wearing it again next year for my larger ceremony, I needed my dress cleaned, and I am so happy I found Orange Restoration labs. My dress was cleaned in a reasonable amount of time and it looks as good as new. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to have their wedding gown cleaned

    Such a lovely review, thank you! Hope your second event this year happens exactly as planned--and that we will see you again afterward!

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

    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.

  • I contacted Sally through my bridal shop and she was lovely! Very professional, flexible, and knowledgeable about wedding dress cleanings. Sally reassured me that my dress would be in good hands, and she delivered! I was concerned that my sample sale dress would not match my brand new veil, but rest assured Sally’s work did not disappoint! I cannot wait to get married this year in my beautifully cleaned and sparkling dress!

    So happy for you that your sample gown perked up enough after cleaning to match your veil. Although we could have dyed the veil to match, what actually happened was so much better.

  • Personalized experience with museum-quality treatment of my gown. Sally from Orange Restoration Labs is an absolute expert when it comes to gown preservation and I wouldn't have trusted anyone else. The pricing was also very reasonable for the quality of service - she didn't even charge me for some minor tears and repairs. Definitely would recommend.

    Thanks so much for your very kind review. Amsale gowns are always made from beautiful fabrics, and your gown's decorated lace is gorgeous!

  • I'm so glad that I found Orange Restoration Labs to clean my wedding dress! We had a small wedding this year and I was looking for somewhere to get my dress cleaned before wearing it again in 2021. I was worried about being able to find somewhere that I would trust working with my dress and I'm glad I found them online. Sally was very accommodating with when we were able to drop off/pick up the dress and was so knowledgeable. The bottom of my dress was a bit dirty from our outdoor wedding and walking around the property for pictures and it looks good as new now! We drove a little over an hour each way to drop off & pick up my dress and it was definitely worth the drive. I will be contacting Sally again after our second celebration in 2021!

    Thank you! I am so pleased you are happy with your gown! Such fun to be able to wear your gown twice!

  • Orange Restoration is top notch across the board. Our wedding gown came back just like new and we are even having a family christening gown restored by Sally! She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work.

    I am very happy you are so pleased with your gown, and thank you again for trusting us with your christening gown. It is such a pleasure to work with vintage dresses. I only wish I had taken a photo before beginning the restoration process. It already looks so much brighter!

  • Orange Restoration Labs preserved my wedding gown 26 years ago. So when it was time to do my daughter’s gown there was no where else I would consider taking it. They did a great job

    Such a delight to know that your own preservation led you to choose us for your daughter's gown preservation. And she is just as lovely as you!

  • 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.

    responded with the following comments.

    So glad you are pleased with the tiara and hope you will share some photos after the wedding. Would love to see how it all went together.

  • 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!

    responded with the following comments.

    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.

  • Sally is beyond amazing, her responsiveness with email is wonderful. Her work speaks for itself! I had brought her my grandmothers gown (in a box for 60+ years yellowed, all the lace was 'crunchy') Sally worked her magic and it is like a brand new dress! I highly highly recommend Orange Restorations Labs for any of your wedding dress needs! Thank you again!

    Truly delighted you are pleased. Love the lace panels on the front of your gown!
