Alterations, Cleaning & Preservation Your wedding dress is a novelty piece that is tailored to fit your unique body. Whether you need initial alterations or a last-minute repair, our tailors cater to all types of embroidery, beading, sequins, lace, zippers, seams, etc. When your big day has come and gone, the festivities may have wreaked havoc on your gown. We go the extra mile to bring it back to pristine. Whether your gown is mermaid, ballgown, cultural attire, silk organza, beaded, etc. (with or without embellishments), we’ll have it looking as spotless as it did on your special day. Our clients can open their gown boxes at any time so they can share their cherished memories with loved ones. The box and tissue are lignin-free, the pH stays neutral, and the box is not sealed, these are big factors when preserving. We stuff the gown with tissue and wrap it in a muslin covering. An additional muslin covering is used to cover the entire box. Air flow to the gown is extremely important, the additional cover acts as an air filter.

I had my grandmother’s fragile vintage wedding dress cleaned and prepared for my wedding here last week! Alicia was so very helpful in the process. She made sure that the order would be complete in time and even personally reached out with any questions.
I have only wonderful things to say about Cameo! This is the most caring, client-centric dry cleaner I have ever experienced. Dawn and her team at Cameo saved my wedding a few weeks ago. I dropped off my wedding gown to be steamed and shortly after Dawn contacted me because she noticed something was wrong with my gown when I dropped it off. She knew exactly what to do and after confirming with me, coordinated it to be fixed by an alterations specialist immediately, then had it steamed perfectly and wrapped carefully so it wouldn’t wrinkle or get damaged in transit, and delivered it directly to my hotel the day prior to my wedding. I can’t stop thinking about the fact that if I hadn’t brought my gown to Cameo, or they hadn’t been so quick and meticulous, it would be the morning of my wedding when I put on my gown only to realize it was split. Cannot thank you enough, from the bottom of my heart! Such caring and trusted professionals
You would have thought that I spent my wedding day rolling around in the mud when you saw how gross the bottom of my wedding dress was by the end of the night. So disgusting. Naturally, I did nothing about it for a couple of months. After visiting two different wedding dress cleaners in Long Island who refunded my deposits and failed to clean the dress, I took my dress to Cameo by Copeland Cleaners in New York City. For brides who live in NYC, I cannot recommend them enough. They cleaned a small section of the bottom of the dress before cleaning the whole dress to ensure they got it clean. They sent me photos of the difference so I could approve of a full cleaning. I also got to see the entire dress in person before they preserved the dress. They will be delivering the dress (for free) to me at my apartment. Their assistant manager was so responsive, and they have been great to work with. Looking forward to have that gem back in my closet!
