Great way to make a custom designed keepsake of wedding dresses!
I ordered a couple angels and handkerchiefs to be made from Unbox the Dress using my mother’s wedding dress after she passed. The design team was very responsive and informed me well about the process to ship the dress, and approximate timeline on how long it would take, and the final return shipping of the products. They were very professional and cleaned the dress. They even asked for my input. The final products were beautiful and very detailed. My family was very touched last Christmas to receive a piece of my Mom to remember her by.Sent on 11/19/2020

Unbox the Dress was founded by mother-daughter team Lorraine Stewart and Grace Rojek! The two came up with the business concept after discovering several special, boxed family wedding gowns at Grace's grandmother's house. The two started to brainstorm all the special designs they could make using the beautiful fabric and lace from the gowns. Since the business began in 2017, the company has served over 1K families from coast to coast - and now operates from a 5K sq. ft. studio space in Winston Salem, NC. Grace and Lorraine love working together and helping so many fabulous women reimagine their wedding gown!
