Dry cleaning a 60 year old wedding dress and 65 year old Navy uniform - OK to do?

In two weeks, we're having a huge party for my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and their 80th birthdays. We'd like to display my grandma's wedding dress and my grandpa's Navy uniform (wool), but I'd like to clean them first. They're actually in great shape, considering their age. The dress has obviously yellowed, but the material, a heavy satin, is in good shape. The Navy uniform has a few moth holes in it and smells faintly, but OK otherwise. So, my question is this - Would it be safe to dry clean them? I'm thinking that if it's OK to dry clean them, I should probably take them someplace that specializes in cleaning vintage or delicate items. I'm not sure where that would be though. I'm in Phoenix, AZ. Thoughts or suggestions?
