Quality, Experience & Personalized Service
Including Complimentary Pick-up & Delivery in Our Delivery Regions
Margaret's is your best source for couture bridal cleaning, alterations, pressing, gown preservation, on-site pick-up and delivery, and storage. Work one-on-one with our experienced seamstress to perfect the fit of your gown, or to add custom design details. Bring in your used or dirty gown to get award winning cleaning in our custom designed facility, or keep it safe with our museum quality preservation. We also cater to the vintage-gown-wearing bride to restore, or revamp the style. All work is done in house by our highly qualified team.
We have store locations in San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar, Newport Beach and Los Angeles and have custom designed our San Diego cleaning facility to include soaking tubs and showers which are often required to remove challenging soil from delicate bridal gowns.

Margaret's offers couture bridal gown alterations, pre-wedding cleaning and pressing, and complimentary pick-up and site delivery before the wedding for those in our Southern California service areas. Following the wedding and reception we can pick-up the gown for post-wedding cleaning and pressing, as well as our lifetime guaranteed Legacy Gown Preservation®. We have an additional service of gown storage both before the wedding and after it's boxed for preservation to ensure that it is stored in the best environment possible.
If you have questions about cleaning or preservations or to make an appointment to discuss your gown, please contact our bridal coordinators directly at our Convoy office. Click the Gown Care Services, Plus Many Tips and Gown Emergencies here for useful information we provide to our brides.

Our bridal alterations specialists have extensive experience in the alterations of wedding gowns, including resizing, restyling, creating attractive bustles, and even creative methods to update or restore vintage gowns. If you wish to look the very best on your wedding day, consider Margaret's for your bridal alterations. Be confident that your gown will fit right and create that lasting impression! Bridal Alterations are only available at our San Diego location. Call the Bridal Department for an appointment!
Vintage Restoration can restore an old damaged and/or yellowed gown so that it can be worn by generations of brides. There's a wonderful example from the Brochures page...Margaret's "Split Gown" Restoration.
Keep your gown secure, safe from the hazards of a crowded closet, and also hidden from "prying eyes" before the wedding by having us store it for you. Following your gown preservation, we offer long-term storage in a climate-controlled environment. We will also take care of opening the storage box and refolding the gown as needed.
Our Bridal Look Book
"My seamstress for my wedding dress recommended I use Margaret’s to press and clean my dress before my big day. Carrie in the wedding department was sooooo nice and helpful, especially when I asked ridiculous questions like, “Are you sure my dress is going to be okay?!” I dropped off my dress on a Monday morning and after the bridal manager looked at the dress we discussed it so I knew exactly what to expect. On Thursday morning at 10:10am (my delivery window was 10-11am) my mother-in-law received the dress and it looked perfect!!!!! It came with one of those body inserts in it to hold everything in place, upright, and looked gorgeous. So worth it!" — Nicole D., San Diego, CA
WOW! WOW! WOW!
"The best place to get your cleaning done for your top-of-the-line [insert anything delicate]. Margaret's kindly picked up my finished gown from Beverly Hills boutique a week before my wedding, made the gown look 1000 times better, and dropped it off at my wedding venue a day before my wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing!!!..." — Yoon P., San Diego (excerpt from the BRIDES TALK BOOKLET
"After a long plane ride from Chicago, Tracy's dress needed some love. A quick trip to Margaret's and the dress was delivered back to the La Valencia looking perfect for the wedding!" — Shaun S., Glenview, IL
