A wedding dress is perhaps the most special and emotive garment you will ever own. We understand this, and for this reason we are dedicated to providing you with outstanding service in the cleaning of your wedding dress.
Before cleaning your bridal gown, we inspect it to ascertain which treatment best benefits your dress, in some instances the fabric and makeup of the dress can determine how the dress will perform during the cleaning process. Once cleaned we re-inspect your dress and decide if any more treatment is necessary. Only once we are completely satisfied your dress is clean; we press your bridal gown by hand.
Once the dress is ready for pick up, you can then inspect your dress, after which you can either take your dress as it is or have it packaged in acid-free tissue paper and placed into a box for posterity.
There are many wedding gown dry cleaners in Sydney. However, not all of them offer quality results or satisfactory cleaning processes. Our experienced staff will take care of your delicate dress not only during the cleaning process, but afterwards.
We can provide a quote to you before it is cleaned to ensure that you are aware what the cost will be; especially if you have experienced a trash the dress photo. Cleaning your wedding dress is an investment worth making if you wish to keep your bridal gown. In some cases we cannot be held responsible for damage to the dress during the cleaning, especially if there is no care label or stubborn stains that cannot be removed especially along the hem line, including embellishments that do not perform well during the cleaning.
