About Boxed Bridal


Dedicated to presenting a wedding dress in a perfect condition, whether that is professional cleaning and preservation of your dress after your wedding, pre-wedding cleaning as you have purchased a pre-loved dress or perhaps a shop sample or boxing her for travel to perhaps accompany you in the cabin of a plane. At Boxed Bridal we are pleased to offer a completely personal on-site service wholly specialising in this delicate, high risk field of work.

Boxed Bridal is part of Pressing Needs, an independent dry cleaning, laundry and ironing business which has been successfully trading in Hampshire for 28 years.  Our home is in Park Gate, conveniently positioned between Portsmouth and Southampton just off junction 9 of the M27.   We have the unusual luxury of a totally dedicated studio within the Pressing Needs Unit which gives us the comfort of plenty of room to look at your dress and time to be spent with you when you visit.

You may not be on our doorstep and be able to visit us personally, so we are pleased to be able to arrange a courier collection and delivery service (with a preference being to use the next day Parcel Pete service so a dress is never in transit for more than 24 hours and outside of your care or ours!)

Our aim is to offer a truly personal service from start to finish to leave you, the bride with complete confidence that your dress is safe and will be cared for while she is with us.  We are pleased to assure you that the all cleaning and pressing takes place on site and your dress will not leave us unless by prior arrangement for perhaps, Ula, our superb seamstress to carry out repairs to her.

We will clearly explain how the cleaning process works and the various cleaning options we have available.  When our work is finished, a mutually convenient appointment will be made you to return to our site and watch while your dress is carefully folded and boxed for long term storage (this option means you wont feel you have to remove it from the box as soon as you get it home to see the results!!), or alternatively, if you are still looking forward to wearing your dress for your wedding day, she will be placed within a fresh clean breathable zip up bag.

We are proud that the results we achieve are generally very good, 

but on occasions, even we are astonished!!  Believe in MIRACLES!

Cleaning a wedding dress is very different to everyday dry cleaning - it is high risk in so many ways, and not just because of the value of the dress itself, but possibly more importantly, because of the emotional irreplaceable memories it holds, for you the bride, the groom, your Mum, your Dad....to name just a few!  At Boxed Bridal we are able to deal with virtually any wedding dress that is presented, both before and after the big day....


AND MORE... Through Pressing Needs, our parent company, we are also able to offer a complete dry cleaning service for all other wedding related items, including the grooms suit, bridesmaid dresses and the all important, mother of the bride outfit and of course, Mother of the Groom, Groomsmen etc etc.   All treated with the same care and attention to detail.

Finally...your Veil - please dont forget this important part of your bridal transformation and make sure you bring it with you or discuss it with us.
