Help ~ GTA Wedding Gown Cleaners?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

Hope to get your help - I fell in love with a sample dress a week ago and bought it instantly.....the dress is quite dirty and the lady at the store assured me that a dry cleaner can get it out and I should expect to spend about $100.  The dress is quite simple without any beading or decoration and made with raw silk.  When I took it to the recommended dry cleaning store- they quoted me $250 which now makes me feel really silly for spending so much $$$ on a dirty sample dress.

 

So I wanted to see if anyone has had a good experience with a GTA cleaner and about how much you paid for your cleaning? I've asked around and gotten quotes from $85-$300...not sure if I should bring it to a regular dry cleaner with gown service or a specialty gown service.

 

Also I've gotten mixed recommendations whether I should alter it first or dry clean it first. Thoughts?

The company wedding gown preservation will do gown cleaning without the preservation and can do cleaning and minor repairs you just write on the packing slip clean only...we sell the kits my wedding store for $149 and that includes the preservation and cleaning...I certainly wouldnt pay more than that to do just the cleaning locally.  The only bad thing about using the kit is that you would use the kit to ship the gown to them and they ship it back(UPS) versus dropping it off and picking up locally.  Hopefully this information helps you price out your options better!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
