The National : APRIL MAY JUNE 2016
THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DRYCLEANER & LAUNDERER APRIL MAY JUNE 2016 29 John told the NATIONAL that although he had been a member of AWGS for only a couple of months, already he had received three enquiries via the website. Members benefit from both trademarked logos and other promotions such as care labels and recommendations from more than 70 designer gowns including couture designers Romona Keveza, Modern Trousseau, Paloma Blanca, and Matthew Christopher. The Association partners, too, with wedding media such as YourWeddingExperiencebyDavidTut era.com, TheKnot.com, WeddingWire.com (affiliated with Brides.com, WeddingBee.com, and ProjectWedding.com), MyWedding.com (affiliated with MarthaStewartWeddings.com), PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, and MaharaniWeddings.com. The Association's MuseumCareTM ZeroCarbonTM preservations are Endorsed by the Association of Bridal Consultants, the professional organisation dedicated to wedding professionals worldwide. Brides benefit from the personal, interactive service offered by wedding gown specialists in local communities, but the guarantee is truly an international warranty because each member honors the guarantee of every other member no matter where in the world they may be. The Association also offers brides the safety and convenience of Destination Wedding Kits, which are designed to fit into the overhead space on board airplanes. The kits make it easy for brides to carry their gowns with them through security and onto the airplane enroute to their destination weddings.
