Bridal Dress Storage Box
Wedding Dress Preservation Box

With our wedding dress preservation box service, once your wedding dress has been lovingly cleaned and pressed, your dress will be carefully packed into a specially designed wedding dress box for safekeeping.  With our standard boxes, you can be reminded of your wedding day whenever you want, as there’s is a window under the top cover which means, you can view it easily without the hassle of even having to take it out of the box.  The dress is surrounded with acid free tissue paper in the box and presented under the window so that it can be admired for years to come.

We also provide hand made wedding dress storage boxes.  These wedding dress preservation boxes are absolutely beautiful, in fact RTE have sought them from us for various TV features!

With our top of the range bespoke hand made boxes, the box is built specifically to your requirements – you choose from a wide selection of designs and colours and even have it inscribed with your name and the wedding date.

Many of Ireland’s best bridal shops (and other dry cleaners) around Dublin, Kildare, Meath, Laois, Louth and Wicklow value our service and trust us to clean their wedding dresses.

Some Wedding Dress Customer Reviews

Honestly, I can not praise this experience enough

” Absolutely will be recommending you to anyone who wants fantastic service. First of all, after submitting the form online you actually called me and made a genuine effort to know how to pronounce my name which was greatly appreciated. Fidelma was also very reassuring and put me at ease when it came to making a decision after I had looked into a few different places. I never had to go looking for updates, they were always given readily.

My dress was returned in a fabulous box. The grooms suit looks as if it just came from the tailors, perfect condition. I loved that Fidelma suggested a smaller size because of the material and listened to how I intended to store it so I could make a decision on having a window or not. She could have tried to upsell me like others tried to do so yet she didn’t. Even when I called to settle the account they knew who was supposed to call ana again even that person made an effort with my name.

Honestly, I can not praise this experience enough. You will get my business again in the future.

Ye truly are angels. “

To say I am thrilled with the result would be an understatement

” 10 years after my wedding, I finally decided to get my dress cleaned. Fidelma made the process so easy by collecting and delivering the dress. I received it back today and to say I am thrilled with the result would be an understatement. The presentation box is gorgeous and the dress is like brand new. They did such a wonderful job and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. “

Couldn’t be Happier with the Result

” I had my wedding dress and veil cleaned by Cleaning Angel. This was all arranged during the pandemic and they both collected and dropped off my dress for me, which was really helpful. My dress is now absolutely perfect and couldn’t be happier with the result. I had also forgotten to put my veil in the dress bag and didn’t realise for a few weeks and they were happy for me to drop that into them, even though they had already started my dress. Communication was excellent throughout. I would highly recommend Cleaning Angel and will definitely use again. “

Tips for Storing your Wedding Dress

1) Clean it!  Have the dress dry cleaned, by a dry cleaner who specialises in cleaning wedding dresses. Cleaning removes stains that may not be immediately apparent and may show up later.  The solvents used in dry cleaning can also deter insects.

2) Be Sensible!  Follow some simple rules: Store it in a dry, dark & warm (not hot) place.

3) Box it!  But don’t just box it in any box, use a purpose built wedding dress box.  The box needs to be sturdy enough to eliminate light, protect your dress from dust and accidents.  It also needs to be breathable i.e. not plastic, and be pH neutral i.e. contain no acid or alkali. A box made of heavy board with a fitted lid will protect from insects providing there are no gaps between lid and base.  Our wedding boxes fulfill all of these criteria.

4) Beware of Acid!  Always store your wedding dress in a pH neutral medium (acid free), with acid free tissue paper. Be aware, that if you store your dress in acid free tissue paper, but place that in a non acid free box, the tissue paper will soak up the acid and you would need to change the tissue paper regularly in order to avoid problems.

5) Check It!  Once packed away, check on your dress every year or so.  If you unpack it and repack it, this will ensure that creases don’t become permanent.  We include a set of white cotton gloves in your box to allow you to do this without transferring the oils on your fingers to the dress.

6) Store It Properly!  If you keep your Wedding Dress Box in a warm dry spare room that has no history of insects (i.e. not your attic), then insect damage, damp etc will be minimised and your dress can survive for many years to come.
