My wedding dress came back!
Layer by layer:
A large package wrapped in brown paper, with an elegant label saying "The Bridal Gown Preservation Company
Lots and lots of bubble wrap
An elegant cream ribbon
An acid-free cream and gold cardboard box
4 layers of tissue paper to fold out over each side of the box
1 layer of tissue paper carefully placed over the dress
My dress! Folded so the first thing you saw was the bodice displayed in all its glory, with more tissue paper tucked between every layer and fold of the dress.
I am now in a dilemma - I want to take it out of the box because it is My Dress, and I have missed it, and I want to check they have cleaned it properly. But I know I will never put it back in the box as splendedly as it currently is.
Anyway, they were marvelous at all times, and I heartilly recommend them.
Cheaper than Johnson's Drycleaners (and a couple of other quotes)
Much nicer box than Johnson's
Did all my repairs for "free" as well as cleaning dress (one sleave, two buttons)
Always answered phone and were organised and useful
Couriers came exactly when they said they would.
Dress was away for exactly the time predicted.
30 year guarantee on state of dress.
Gorgeous sexy wedding dress put perfectly in gorgeous sexy box
Will use the box your dress needs for the same price, instead of charging you more for a medium or large box
Courier service is inconvenient - had to wait in all day for collection and half day for return.
Now daren't take dress back out of wonderful box.
