Ensuring your wedding dress arrives at your wedding destination in pristine condition
Whether you’re having a destination wedding or are simply travelling across the country, you shouldn’t have to worry about transporting your wedding dress.
To ensure your wedding dress arrives looking immaculate, let our professional package service take care of it for you.
PACKAGING YOUR WEDDING DRESS WITH CARE
Here’s how we’ll protect your wedding dress. It will be:
Wrapped with lots of tissue paper
Your dress will be carefully wrapped with acid-free tissue paper, which is made using fewer chemicals so is more eco-friendly. This will reduce the chances of creasing your dress.
Placed in a garment bag
After wrapping your wedding dress with tissue paper, it will be carefully placed in a garment bag to protect it from spills and moisture.
Packed in a sturdy, breathable box
Your wedding dress, in its protective garment bag, will be placed in a crush-resistant box to avoid damage by knocks and bumps. The box will then be sealed with adhesive tape.
TRAVELLING WITH YOUR WEDDING DRESS
Your boxed wedding dress can usually be carried on board flights as hand luggage, although you should always check size restrictions for your chosen airline.
ARRIVING WITH YOUR WEDDING DRESS
Once you reach your wedding destination, make sure you hang your dress up in its garment bag to allow any creases to fall.
If you would like it pressed or steamed, check the care instructions provided by your designer first.
