  • 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.

  • 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.

    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!

    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!

  • Sally at Orange Labs is an expert in wedding gown restoration, cleaning and storage. My daughter wanted to wear her grandmother's wedding gown and lace veil but they were in need of restoration and cleaning as they had both yellowed and had stains. My daughter-in-law suggested we call Sally because she had her dress restored by Sally after her local dry cleaner had ruined the dress in the cleaning process leaving it with water marks and yellow spots. Sally did an amazing job cleaning my daughter-in-law's dress so when it was time to restore grandma's dress and veil, of course, we went to Sally. Sally is meticulous in her work and has perfected the process of restoration. Grandma was thrilled to see that her wedding gown and veil looked just like it did decades ago. Thank you Sally and Orange Labs.

    So lovely when a family treasures its heritage! So pleased the original bride was happy, too. All best, Sally

  • Sally and Orange Restoration Labs are wonderful! It was so easy to schedule a time to drop off and pick up my dress from her location in Orange. She and her team did a fabulous job getting the black dirt stains out of my wedding gown hem and allowing me to inspect it before packing it with care in front of me. They offset their Carbon footprint which is a bonus. I'm completely satisfied with how Sally got my dress back to looking like new when I thought I had ruined it. I highly recommend Orange Restoration.

    So glad you are happy with your gown! And thanks so much for sharing your photos with us. Love your chuppah!

  • I was so pleased with the way Orange Restoration Labs treated my wedding gown. A year after my wedding, I finally got around to preserving my gown. It is something I won’t regret doing, as I know I can look at my gown for years to come, confident in its preserved and pristine condition. Sally cleaned and packaged my gown, and the box even has a little window for me to look through so I can see the lovely beading on my dress. I recommend Orange Restoration Labs for any and all of your gown preservation needs!

    Thank you, Alison. I very much enjoyed working with you and your gown. You are right. The beading is very special!

  • If you want quality workmanship; if you want to work with a professional; if you want superior service; if you want to work with someone who will move heaven and earth to make it happen - then you want Sally Conant at Orange Restoration Labs. From the very first time I sent an inquiry email to her to find out about having my only daughter's wedding dress pressed as it had traveled with her in her car several times during a move, Sally was supportive, willing to go out of her way to make it happen and very very good at what she does!! We did not know who to trust as we are not locals and I can tell you I am so very happy we took a chance. On her wedding day Sally personally delivered her dress and veil to our hotel and it was pressed and immaculate and had forms inserted to keep the shape of the dress as intended. Thank You Sally!! Mother of the Bride

    You are very welcome! It was the perfect dress for Nicola, and I am delighted we could help.

  • PLEASE READ!! Lets start from the beginning. As my "something borrowed" I wanted to wear my mothers veil from my parents wedding. My parents got married in 1981, during that time you were able to smoke inside the venue, one of the guest was smoking a cigar. When my mom went to hug him, his cigar burned a hole right thru her veil. She never thought it would be able to be repaired because the veil was so delicate. Once I found my wedding dress, I asked the seamstress if she could/knew someone to restore my mothers veil. Eva from the dress store sent me to Sally at Orange Restoration. When I brought my veil to Sally it had a huge burn hole, it was yellowed from not being packaged correctly, and had water damage from a flood in our basement. She looked at it and explained what she needed to do and how she would fix it to make it perfect. Sally had to remove and reapply each applicate on the veil to cover up the burn hole. When I picked it up and brought it home to my mother, she couldn't b... Read more

    Thank you, Nicole, for such a very nice review! I so enjoyed working with your veil, and it was lovely to see it with your gown afterward. Altogether it was a fun project, and I am delighted you were pleased!

  • Taking my dress to Sally for preservation after my wedding was most definitely the best decision!Not only is Sally a wonderfully sweet,professional and amazingly lovely lady with brilliant stories, but her work is first class!I was able to take my dress to Sally where she explained the process, then I came back a few weeks later to collect it. Before Sally packed it into the box for me, I could see that all the stains were gone and it looked brand new! She is very thorough and I would absolutely recommend her services everytime. Thank you so much for your amazing work and it was so lovely to meet you Sally! :)

  • Sally did a beautiful job with my veil. From the coloring to the patchwork that was needed, everything came out perfect. My veil was a little tricky to work with as it is several generations old. I would trust her 100% with any of your restoration needs!

    Such a lovely veil---truly an heirloom to be treasured!
