“Why should I have my wedding dress cleaned?” “Can you get all the marks out?” “What about delicate beading?” “Can you clean silk?” “The care label says Do Not Clean”. “I only wore her once and she is not that dirty!” “I am anxious about having my dress cleaned.” These statements and many more questions are familiar to us. At Boxed Bridal we will take the time to reassure you that we will achieve the best possible results for you and your wedding dress.
Whether you were married last month, last year or over 10 years ago, we know at Boxed Bridal it is never too late to have your wedding dress cleaned and preserved. With the combination of experience, three state of the art cleaning processes, and our passion for hard work, we can achieve the best possible results for you and bring life back to your wedding dress.
Wedding dresses are presented to us in all varying conditions, from mud to grass stains, drink spillages and make up etc, so nothing surprises us! Each dress comes with different challenges - take time to view our amazing before and after photos on our online gallery and also on our Facebook page.
We have 3 pricing options at Boxed Bridal, each dependent
upon the style and volume of a wedding dress:
£165.00 – Column/Sheath
£185.00 – Traditional/A line/ Fully Beaded
£225.00 – Princess Ballgown with lots & lots of volume!
We have cleaned dresses by many designers including Pronovias, Suzanne Neville, Jenny Packham, Justin Alexander, Sassi Holford, Jesus Peiro, Made with Love, Stella York, Essense of Australia, Madi Lane, Savin London and Morilee.
This diversity of experience has given us an exceptional understanding of wedding dresses, in particular their construction and their fabrics including lace, mikado, crepe, silk, satin, chiffon, tulle and finally, the delicacy and intricacy of beadwork.
We also offer our ever-popular pre-wedding pressing service, used by brides who’s wedding dress is in need of a good steam and press, ensuring their dress is in the best condition possible ready for their big day. Additionally, we have the added benefit of our veil cleaning and pressing service for both before and after your wedding day. New veils can arrive creased and in need of a good press and if you have bought secondhand or are borrowing a veil, it is recommended to have it cleaned before your wedding, but also cleaned and pressed to return it to its owner or to restore it to a saleable condition.
If you are a lucky Bride-to-be who has found your dream dress from a sample sale or pre-loved website, then you may want to consider having her cleaned and/or pressed before your wedding day. Many brides, who have chosen to leave the cleaning to after the wedding, have said that they wished they’d had this cleaner, brighter, more vibrant dress on their special day and not waited. Boxed Bridal will not only bring her back to her best condition, but will also make her feel like yours, ready for her big performance!
Areas of a dress to look out for in different lighting are often the neckline and underarms as these will show signs of wear usually through makeup or tan marks. The hem of the skirt may also have greying from being swept across the floor in the Bridal shop. Fingerprint marks are also a huge giveaway, found at the waist of the dress from being picked up when worn. Please get in touch with team BB to discuss your requirements.
Wedding dress cleaning is not just for those keeping their dresses. If you choose to sell your dress, having her cleaned will truly enhance her appeal to other brides providing you with a much better chance of a quick sale. Many brides love a bargain and pre-loved wedding dresses are a very popular choice!
Wedding dresses may be our specialty, but they are not the only wedding attire that will require a professional clean. Working alongside Pressing Needs and with the same care and attention to detail, we will care for all the wedding party’s special attire. For more information, please get in touch today.
