If your dream wedding gown or veil is vintage or heirloom and needs a little (or more) love, Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists finds joy and fulfillment in restoring and restyling vintage gowns and veils for modern brides. They also love to use vintage fabrics and laces to create one-of-a-kind bridal accessories such as pendants, ring pillows, garters, and more.

From cleaning and preserving to vintage gown restoration and restyling, Great Lakes Wedding Gown Specialists gives your treasured gown the care it deserves. GLWGS offer eco-friendly Museum Care Preservation Packages for brides who want to keep their gowns for the next generation and a Resale Package for brides who want to pass it on sooner by selling the gown.  They also understand the value of the sentiment on a wedding day and eco-mindedness and that is why they’ve built their studio and business around caring for wedding gowns in environmentally safe ways and encouraging brides to wear vintage or once-loved gowns whenever desired and possible.
