AWGS Certified Gown Specialists

Picture yourself on your wedding day: Glowing with confidence in your perfect wedding dress (or suit). We’re here to help make that dream a reality with expert care for your celebration garments.

Whether you are newly engaged or your wedding clothes have been hanging in your closet for years, we’ll help you create a garment care plan that honors your wedding garments as future heirlooms.

You can trust Maine’s only certified wedding gown specialists with your most cherished attire. Our highly-trained experts do all our work in-house, so your garments never leave our hands.

It’s easy to take advantage of our services. We offer free pickup and delivery in Greater Portland, and we’re happy to travel anywhere in Maine, New Hampshire, or Massachusetts. You may also ship your garments to us or visit one of our 12 convenient locations.


Pre-Wedding Preparation

Most gowns and suits need to be prepped before the big day if you want them to be photo-ready. We hand steam and press each garment to remove wrinkles and creases. Ruffles, pleats, beading, and embellishments are carefully primped, resulting in flowing fabric and a flattering silhouette. You and your wedding party will look better than your highest hopes! 

On-site Garment care

A team of garment care professionals will come to the venue of your choice in Maine, New Hampshire, or Massachusetts. We will hand-prepare garments and accessories for the wedding couple, the wedding party, mothers, and honored guests right before your ceremony. If you’re the type who leaves nothing to chance, this is the service for you! 

Post-wedding cleaning and Preservation

Your wedding dress may look perfect to the naked eye, but it should be cleaned and preserved as soon as possible after your wedding. Champagne splashes, teardrops, and even the oil from your fingers will degrade the fabric over time, reducing the value of your precious dress and limiting its future use. Let us pick up your dress and preserve it while you’re on your honeymoon! If your dress has been hanging in your closet for months (or even years), contact us ASAP.

Pressed and Delivered So Smoothly
I really appreciate the work this company did for me. I travelled with my gown from Denver to Portland, Maine and was heading to my parents' cottage in Casco Bay. After traveling all day with my heavy ball gown, I could not imagine lugging it onto a ferry. I was so pleased how Pratt Abbott was ready to receive me and my gown and hold it for me all week before my wedding. On the day before our wedding, Angela showed up to our hotel just as we were checking in with my dress. The gown was pressed beautifully and the convenience was so incredibly helpful. I've sent my gown back to them for a professional cleaning and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a cleaner who is really looking out for the client!

Excellent Service!
Pratt Abbott Cleaners steamed my wedding dress and it came out perfect! Everyone who we communicated with was very professional, helpful, and pleasant to work with. My dress was delivered to the venue on time and the woman who delivered it made sure it was placed in the correct room and hanging up correctly before leaving. Angela included a very nice note with the delivery, congratulating me on my wedding day. We are using Pratt Abbott for my dress cleaning and preservation. Thank you so much!

Yay for House Calls! 🙂
It was so wonderful to have Angela's team come to my parents' house and steam my wedding dress and all my bridesmaid's dresses! Since everyone had come from out of town for our Maine wedding, it was so nice to not have to worry about taking the dresses, dropping them off, picking them up, etc...I even had them steam the groom's suit! They were friendly and their smiles and efficiency helped me stay super relaxed on my wedding day and the dresses looked amazing. Thank you so much!

Heirloom Quality Service
I brought my wedding gown that I wore in 1988 and has since been worn by my two daughters for cleaning and preservation. Their service was thorough and I know that my future granddaughters will be wearing it and it will be as beautiful as it always was!
A Sentimental Process
I waited longer than I should have to finally get my wedding dress preserved. I felt like it was the final memory still lingering to be sealed away for later. Pratt Abbott made this final step seamless and their employees appeared to intuitively know how sentimental this process is for brides. I received my dress sooner than I thought and then a thank you note in the mail from Angela. I use Pratt Abbott for most of my cleanings and have so pleased with how they take care of the day to day and the once in a lifetime 🙂
