Care for your Gown

  • Upon receiving your gown, please try-on and inspect to see you are happy with the results
  • Please always have an assistant to help you try on your gown. We do offer a dressing service on your special day if required.
  • Hang or lay the dress according to instructions, otherwise creases may develop
  • Beware of staining from fake-tan, lotions, makeup, perfume, deoderant, or hand-sanitiser
  • Beware of sharp edges catching delicate lacework, for instance from engagement rings, nails, or zippers on your garment bag
  • Beware of shoes catching on hems and trains
  • Please ask about special cleaning instructions. Bridal fabrics can be extremely fragile.
  • DO NOT IRON! Please ask beforehand, we are happy to help.
  • We highly recommend Syndal’s Bridal Dry Cleaners https://syndalsdrycleaners.com/
