Dress cleaning after wedding

Super impressed with Seattle Wedding Dress Specialists. I had red wine stains on the front of my dress and stains on the train from taking photos on the dock. Dress came back good as new!

Speedy and great work

I loved working with Pauline. She knew just what alterations I needed, and the hemming and gown adjustments were done beautifully and very quickly. She even taught me how to walk and descend stairs in a long gown. She was also able to alter my gown afterwards to make it wearable for other occasions, and getting my gown cleaned there was an added bonus.

Beyond Incredible

Working with Seattle Wedding Dress Specialists was hands down the easiest and most rewarding part of my wedding planning. I bought a dress from a company that curates and resells showroom pieces, and I completely fell in love with it. However, at some point, the dress picked up a dirt stain on one of the straps, and I had a total panic. I live in Southern California, but the wedding was in Seattle, and I was cutting it close to the wedding when I finally picked my dress as it was! I emailed Will at the Dress Specialists in a total and complete meltdown that my dream dress was ruined forever. After looking at a few photos, Will was very sweet and reassuring over email, and we agreed I would bring it in as soon as I landed in Seattle, a week before my wedding. Once we brought the dress in, not only was Will just as sweet and reassuring in person, but he worked through his weekend and rushed to get the dress cleaned and pressed in time for my wedding. The dress turned out stunning and all of my guests gushed about it all weekend. Do not hesitate to call or email them if you have a question or concern about your dress!! They work miracles and if they were able to calm me down, I can guarantee they can calm you down! Thank you again Will!!!

We started caring for wedding dresses before I can remember, and I’m proud to say I think we have evolved and learned and grown, and still are the most qualified people to handle any dress that comes in our door. That’s why I’m so excited to be continue this endeavor with my Mike & Holden, my dad and brother, doing what we do best and only that. Caring for wedding dresses, and being a business essential to the fabric of Seattle. After working countless jobs, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be and I’m so excited to keep providing Seattle with a service that only a small business can give.
