While Manhattan may have a lot of great bridal salons & boutiques, it does not have a lot of good service options when it comes to couture cleaning specialists! Believe me, I've done my research. Luckily having lived in Montclair in the past, I knew that after our dream wedding... Read More I could only entrust my beautiful gown and my husband's made-to-measure tuxedo to Patricia and her team of experts at Moline Kronberg, a true neighborhood gem that everyone should know about. Their cleaning and preservation services are as impeccable as their customer service here! During drop-off and pick-up, they reviewed every inch of our special garments with us and all I can say after comparing the before & after is: WOW! They are are miracle workers (and wonderful human beings) who were able to remove all the unwanted stains, while allowing us to preserve all the special memories from our Big Day. If you don't leave in the area, rest assured that the end result will be worth the trek (only a short-drive or train-ride from NYC) and every penny. Once again, we'd like to thank and congratulate Patricia & Marcello for everything they have done for this happy couple and for always welcoming us with a smile!

I came to Moline-Kronberg Cleaners to get my wedding dress cleaned and preserved and I am 100% satisfied with their work! From the minute I stepped into the business I was impressed with the level of customer service and attention to detail. The staff is super friendly and ready... Read More to help! My dress was very dirty at the bottom and a couple of buttons fell off. They took about 3 weeks to get the job done but the results were beyond anything I could have imagined! When I arrived to the store for pick up, the staff even knew me by my first name and that really added a nice personal touch. They secured my dress in a preservation box and opened it in front of me when I came for pick up so that I could inspect the dress. My dress looked just like new, it was super clean, the buttons were sewed on and they even included gloves in the packaging that they recommend that I put on whenever I want to try on my dress. The price was very reasonable for the work that was done. I compared prices with many different cleaners and this was well in range. I highly recommend! I will definitely be using them for all my dry cleaning needs!

I am so pleased with my experience at Moline Kronberg! They beautifully restored my grandmother's 1953 chantilly lace wedding gown, which my mother wore again in 1979, to its full glory. I was able to be the third generation to wear this beautiful piece! It had yellowed a lot in... Read More storage, but Patricia and her staff restored it to a lovely white color. They did significant repair to the gown, which had been torn in several places and was overall very fragile and delicate. And then they did extensive alterations to make it fit me perfectly! Carmen is extremely talented as a seamstress. Overall, everyone at Moline Kronberg was wonderful to work with. They made me feel totally confident in their abilities. I would trust them with your delicate, vintage, or one-of-a-kind pieces. They did not disappoint.

I Can’t say enough great things about my experience at Moline Kronberg. After going to a seamstress, who clearly new nothing about altering a wedding dress, my experience here was heaven! The minute I called Patricia on the phone I knew that my prayers were answered and my dress... Read More was going to be amazing! I walked into my appointment very nervous from almost having my hopes shattered from the last place. Patricia and Carmen carefully looked at every single detail of my dress and discovered that although the quality was great it would be very hard to alter due to it not having any seams, being hand sewn overlay & all beading on top. Regardless, they took the challenge without hesitation and made recommendations that they would have recommended to their own daughters because they really do care about your happiness and the beauty of the dress. For each fitting, every detail was looked over with such care and I felt like they were truly looking out for the best for me. They never once rushed or pressured me along. I wanted to fit the dress a little more snug than they would have liked but after my last fitting you could see my smile from ear to ear! The crew and Moline Kronberg not only put so much care and time and love into my dress but truly made me feel like a friend and for a bride to look & feel beautiful is everything you could ask for! Thank you all so much. I can’t wait to show off my beautiful dress!

I could not be happier with Moline Kronberg! I was impressed with their work. The women at Moline Kronberg really listened to what I wanted and produced exactly what I imagined! I originally purchased my wedding dress at BHLDN but I knew I wanted to make some changes to it. At... Read More Moline-Kronberg, they removed lining from the upper back of my dress to make for a better silhouette and unique look. They were able to personalize it by sewing in a belt and adding small details to make feel beautiful in the dress. I always felt comfortable and welcomed when I had my appointments. My mom also had her MOB dress tailored here and was very happy with them! I highly recommend using their services especially if you are looking for a reliable and detail-oriented tailor for your wedding dress.

My experience with Moline Kronberg was absolutely amazing! From the moment I walked in the service was top notch. To be honest, I was very unsure about preserving my wedding gown because I knew it was be very expensive and I was not sure if it was worth it. However, in speaking... Read More with Patricia who is an absolute sweetheart, she made it clear that this would be a great investment and she would make sure my gown would be good as new! She immediately evaluated my gown and explained in detail how her staff would carry out the restoration and preservation of my gown. The process is lengthy and costly ( I believe it took about 8 weeks and I paid $800) but this was so worth it because my gown will not turn yellow and dull. After 8 weeks, I went to pick up my gown and again Patricia was present to show me exactly what they did and gave me instructions on how to store my gown.
