How Our Signature Process Works

Initial Enquiry

Contact us in advance of your wedding to book collection of your gown by emailing info@bridalgowncleaning.ie
We will then post you a collection and make contact to arrange the pick up details.”

Inspection

As soon as your wedding dress arrives with us, we carry out an initial inspection, we will contact you with the inspection details. We will always explain if there are any risks or areas where we think that removal is not possible. We know how important your dress is to you, that is why we never start cleaning without emailing you a copy of the inspection form and ensuring you are happy with it.

Hand Pre Spotting

Some gowns will need a little extra TLC. If yours is one of them, our team of specialists will hand treat it before we begin cleaning to prevent any material damage, discolouration or stains from setting in.

Cleaning

Every dress is unique and so too are the methods needed to clean them. All of our wedding gowns are hand treated prior to cleaning to make sure we achieve the best results. Many brides can feel nervous about treating such a precious heirloom, but every dress is carefully cleaned with fresh solvent that’s specifically designed for wedding gowns.

Post Cleaning Treatment

After we clean your gown, we carefully re-inspect it to make sure we haven’t missed anything. We also hand spot each of our gowns. This is often a lengthy process, but time is no object; our goal is to make sure your gown looks as fabulous as the day you said yes to the dress.

Hand Pressing

Once we are satisfied with how your dress looks, we hand press and iron it. Delicate materials and beading often require extra care, that is why we only ever use custom equipment that is specifically designed with low temperatures to protect and preserve every precious detail on your dress.

Final Inspection

After pressing your gown, we will carry out a final inspection. We work hard to ensure every gown we clean looks as good as new. We will repeat the cleaning process again if we feel required until the best possible results have been achieved.

With the excitement of your wedding day afoot, cleaning your wedding dress is unlikely to be at the front of your mind. As you embark on this new journey with your partner, you likely stow your dress away as a precious reminder of your big day.

However, forgetting about your dress for weeks, or even months, makes preserving it for years more challenging. Stains, even invisible ones, will become darker and more visible with age, and exposure to daylight can cause the fabric to weaken and yellow. That is why you should bring your wedding dress to a professional cleaner as soon as possible to ensure we can preserve your precious memento.

A word from the professionals

TIPS

A big mistake many brides make is leaving their dress in their wardrobe, under their bed, or even worse, the attic, for many weeks, months, or even years after the wedding. Stains, even invisible ones, will become darker and more visible with age – begin to set over time, which makes them harder to remove down the road. Age and exposure to daylight can cause the fabric to weaken and yellow. We advise you book your bridal gown cleaning service when organising all other wedding related services.

All is not lost, however, even if you have waited longer than six months to clean your gown. Professional cleaners and preservation experts often handle wedding dresses up to a year after and sometimes people send them in after 20 years for restoration. If the fibers of the fabric are still strong enough, professional cleaners can restore the gown. But it will likely be more affordable and safer to have it cleaned and preserved right after the wedding.
