New York, NY, September 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Modern Bride Magazine, in the News + Notes section of their October/November issue, profiled White Wedding, Slate NYC's wedding gown cleaning service. The Magazine has a national circulation of more than 347,000. "It's a honor for me and my team to have the recognition of such a reputable publication," said Miguel Zabludovsky, CEO of Slate NYC.
White Wedding is the first eco-friendly wedding gown cleaning service offered world wide with online pricing and real-time tracking. Through a unique strategic alliance with FedEx, brides anywhere can take advantage of the ease of use of White Wedding. After configuring the price of cleaning at slatenyc.com and scheduling a pickup date, brides receive a box complete with everything they need to ship their gown.
Gowns are processed at the Slate NYC World Processing Center in Manhattan's West Village. They go through various inspection, cleaning, finishing and preserving steps before being shipped in a custom gown preservation box.
Every year about 2.4 million couples tie the knot, according to the National Association of Wedding Ministers, making it a $50 billion dollar a year industry. A recently published study by the Conde Nast Bridal Group found that the average altar-bound woman in America is now 27 years old, her fiance is 29, they have an estimated household income of $74,000, will be engaged for a period of 14 months, and their wedding will have 165 guests.
Slate's White Wedding service is aimed at the bride who is looking for convenience, is internet-savvy, and doesn't trust her local, corner dry cleaner to take care of her gown.
