Wedding Dress cleaning in Essex and London by Efendi

Hints and Tips  |  Weddings Abroad  |  Alterations and Repairs  |  Prices

All wedding dresses are examined thoroughly and if needed all beading and trimmings are tested for compatibility and its durability during its cleaning process. Depending on whether the garment is dry-cleaned or wet washed, our machinery has been specially programmed to cope with the delicate nature of the cleaning method required. Delicate garments are cradle washed at low temperatures, short cycles to ensure your precious garment is cleaned in the most delicate method possible.

Any missing or fallen beads are re-sewn. Any tears and minor repairs are undertaken by our expert tailors on site. Your wedding dress is then steam pressed ensuring that the finish and texture of the material is true to the original design. We then layer your dress in acid free tissue paper inserting a tissue-covered bust in the corset of the gown giving shape, form and a crease free appearance in the bridal chest. The wedding dress boxes are supplied by The Empty Box Company Co. We find these to be superior to the cheaper flat-pack boxes used by our competitors. You can visit their web site on

We also clean veils and shoes and together with any other accessories you may want to preserve, pack them with your dress.

We cover Essex, East London & the City and we can deliver to anywhere in the UK.

Hints and tips
1. Avoid trying to remove stains yourself. Spillages should be blotted with a neutral cloth and never rubbed.
2. Avoid spraying perfume directly onto your dress especially if it is silk as this may cause discoloring.
3. To ensure minimum damage to your train hook it up with loops provided.
4. In order to help us obtain the best cleaning results, ensure that you have your dress cleaned within 3 months.
5. Once your dress is cleaned and boxed you must not store it in your loft. Drastic temperature changes may create moisture around the box causing the dress to oxidize.

Wedding Abroad
We can also press & pack your dress into a travel box to ensure it gets to your destination crease free. The travel box is the size of hand luggage so you can keep it with you at all times. Once you have arrived at your destination just take your dress out of the box and hang it up straight away. If you have any fold marks just hang your dress in the doorway of the bathroom and run a hot shower. The steam will soon help release these creases.
