Prices & Gift Cards

A perfect wedding gift....

Organising a wedding includes carefully controlling a budget and the after care of the wedding dress is something that should most definitely be included in this financial planning. 

Once your wedding is over you usually breathe a sigh of relief that the spending has finished, but not so if you have forgotten to budget for wedding dress cleaning. It is certainly a wedding expense and not something that should become part of the day to day household budget. Imagine having to consider "shall I have my wedding dress cleaned, or pay the mortgage or put fuel in the car, or go shopping?"  Without a doubt, sadly, the cleaning of your wedding dress will be pushed further and further down the list.

Purchasing our Pre-Pay Gift Card eliminates the temptation to ignore the need to have your dress cleaned after the event and fixes the cost at today’s prices and not those applying when you finally require the service.

As a bride and groom, this could be included on your Gift List
As a wedding guest, stuck for what to buy as a wedding gift?
Bridesmaids, Mum or Mum-in-Law – you were possibly there when the dream dress was found – you know what it means to your bride.
As a new husband, what a romantic gesture and perhaps the Gift Card might be the first post that is received in your wife’s new name?

PRICES FOR BOXED BRIDAL CLEANING SERVICES ....hopefully you will be able to identify the style of your dress below, but if not, email or call us with the designer and the style name/number and we can confirm for you.  More challenging if you are buying this as a Gift Card...our recommendation would be to go for the first option for the cleaning and the maxi size preservation box as this is where most of the dresses fit that we receive. 

If there is a veil this is included in the price, as is a bolero style jacket pr removable underskirts with hoops.  We are also pleased to include in-house repair work in our cleaning costs - if we can do it here ourselves, there is no extra charge.

Traditional Style - The vast majority of dresses we clean fit into this criteria and we have 2 basic prices for this type of dress based wholly on the fullness of the style of the dress itself being £145.00 and increasing to £165.00 for a larger fuller dress, or possibly a silk fabric or a full circle style skirt.  With the exception of top to toe bead embellishments, the beading does not influence the price of the cleaning of these type of dresses

 Ball Gown/Full Princess - Often described as HUGE when I ask (wish I could think of a nicer way to put this!)  Hollywood Dreams/Mori Lee/Ronald Joyce are recognisable designers of this style  £185.00

Top to Toe Beaded - Often a column style dress but with a mass of intricate beadwork....Jenny Packham/Annasul Y/Eliza Jane Howell are few designers that spring to mind    £165.00

Simple sheath/column style - perhaps with small train - £85.00

Ballerina/Tea Length - shorter style but often with very full skirts - usually cleaner than the floor length style wedding dresses!!  £90.00

If you are now totally confused, give us a call on 01489 556841, or email

You can tailor your Pre-Pay/Gift Card to include the full cleaning and boxing service, or just part of it.

Many brides we speak to admit that they didn’t even consider the cost of cleaning their dress when putting together a wedding budget and many don’t even know if they are going to keep their dress or try to sell it, but both options would require for the dress to be cleaned.

We keep a record of which wedding party has bought a card so the bride and groom don’t end up with 2 cards for one dress!!
