After my Nashville destination wedding, I dropped off my couture, extremely detailed and very large wedding dress for cleaning and preservation. Cleaning, repairing, and preserving the dress was a intense process. The people at Oakwood far exceeded my expectations. It came back absolutely perfect--as if had never worn it--in a gorgeous box inside a muslin bag; the dress itself wrapped in special tissue paper, with white gloves and a certification that the dress will not yellow. The people at Oakwood not only did an amazing job but were a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond for me. I coordinated with Rhonda from Miami before the wedding and she was able to recommend a dress attendant for me, who was invaluable. Rhonda then fedexed the dress back to me in Miami when they were done with it. I was very worried about my precious dress and Oakwood put me ease completely. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Oakwood managed to clean and preserve our family antique lace wedding veil which this time had been dragged over gravel roads and fields in Montana. I couldn't even tell it. The dress was in worse shape but saved by Oakwood. I also appreciate their getting it ready for me to take back up to Montana. Great job!
Before: a vintage wedding veil which had never been cleaned/preserved After: a vintage veil which looked brand new! Oakwood the Greener Cleaners did an excellent job of cleaning my veil. Not only did all of the spots come out completely, you cannot tell the veil even had any. Miss Pat has a way of putting people at ease, their inspection, cleaning and preservation processes are explained thoroughly. An email was sent to me when the veil was finished saying how beautiful it looked. I was beyond delighted when I saw my veil! Our daughter will soon be wearing the veil in her wedding-how exciting! Thank you Oakwood Cleaners, I am so happy I found you when I did.
After 19 years of marriage, my wife and I discovered that our son had opened the box that contained my wife's wedding dress and had damaged it. To make the matter worse, the dress contained a tatting on the veil, done by her 3rd great grandmother, that was also damaged. Irreplaceable and personal only start to describe how devastated she was. Here comes Oakwood cleaners to the rescue! They were not only able to get the staining off the dress but fix the veil! It took them a few months to complete the work, due to the delicate nature, but the dress is now back to its original beauty. My wife cried as she inspected the dress afterwards, a reaction worth every penny. I cannot thank Oakwood Cleaners enough for taking on this very difficult challenge and knocking it OUT OF THE PARK!! Pat was awesome to work with and I really felt she cared as much about the dress as my wife. I will not hesitate doing business with them in the future.
Oakwood Cleaners, NashvilleReviewed on 7/26/2014
It is my pleasure to share my experience at Oakwood Cleaners (3 locations/Nashville metro) having the opportunity to observe a bridal gown cleaning and muslin preservation, a natural eco-friendly way to properly preserve wedding memories. The intake and approval process is so thorough that after thoroughly inspecting the gown for tears, rips, stains, spots, even pin holes from safety pins, etc., it is then hand-sketched highlighting any areas that the cleaning experts need to be aware of to achieve optimal success in cleaning the gown. During the muslin preservation process, the bridal gown specialist nets her hair and wears cotton gloves to prevent any body oils from being passed to the gown while it’s being preserved. Oakwood Cleaners are true wedding gown specialists and experts. The intensive labor required is truly a labor of love and artistry above and beyond the science.
