Specialists for heavenly wedding gowns

As from 1987, the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists (AWGS) is a Canadian not-for-profit trade association with members in eight countries. The organization is also inviting UK drycleaners to join as members.

Members are certified to ensure that wedding gowns and heirloom textiles of all kinds are cleaned according to established museum standards and preserved in archival-quality materials. Brides benefit from the personal, interactive service offered by Certified Wedding Gown SpecialistsTM in local communities. The unique guarantee, which includes pressing gowns at no charge when they are to be used again, as well as the quality of the wedding chests are claimed to be the best in the world.

Both are excellent marketing tools because brides can trust members to care suitably for their gowns.  Besides, the preservations are ‘green’, because AWGS offsets all carbon emissions with donations to Carbonfund.org for reforestation projects worldwide. Finally, two sites -WeddingGownSpecialists.com and WeddingGownSpecialists.net.au – link to members and members benefit from various promotion instruments, such as trademarked logos, special formulas for cleaning and restoration, care labels in designer gowns that recommend AWGS members, as well as partnerships with various wedding media. The Association’s MuseumCareTM ZeroCarbonTM preservations are endorsed by the Association of Bridal Consultants, the professional organization dedicated to wedding professionals worldwide.
