Every female knows the story of Cinderella and there are times when for that special occasion whether it be Wedding Day, evening event, Christening or your first Prom that you want to be the Belle of the Ball. At Cinderella’s we understand how important that is and more than anything else we believe that from choosing the dress and right accessories should be a highly pleasurable experience.

We offer a truly personal service that aims to help you find exactly what you are looking for whatever your size preference colour, style or cut. Based from our unique factory premises we are able to offer the whole package. Even to copying from a picture with our own qualified in house seamstresses and tailors. Based just off the main Larnaca motorway easily accessible to the whole of the Island.

Cinderella’s offers a full customised package from delivery and collection, hire of dresses and accesories to personal one to one appointments. With a heritage and experience of 15 years Cinderella’s is the hidden jewel.

Cinderellas we cover Ayia Napa, Protaras, Pernera and Larnaca here is a helpful tip for your wedding dress: It is great to travel with a box or a suitcase but remember this is your dress besides you this is THE star attraction of the day. Make sure you have a white duvet cover or 2 king size sheets to pin together
Store the dress the duvet cover on its hanger with the train draped over the hanger. Use a wooden hanger or a padded hanger DO NOT CUT out hang tags they are there for a reason, If you have a lace dress do not hang by sleeves as it will stretch. Wrinkles will sometimes “hang out” by themselves, saving you a great deal of hassling with an elaborate and unwieldy garment. If all else fails, there are arrange for it to be steamed. A dress that wrinkles when you look sideways at it (linen will do this, as will some forms of silk) calls for a steamer. Also make sure that the layers of crinoline under the skirt are also fluffed out and unwrinkled, as if not it will not sit right and will still look wrinkled.
Steaming will also do wonders for a veil that has become wrinkled. A great way to store a veil is in a white pillowcase beware of heat humidity and dust. We always suggest hanging it from the air conditioning vents on its hanger in a duvet cover. Also remember wedding shoes if not worn before slightly scuff the bottoms so you do not slip!

What to look for


Kerry Show Stopper · Wedding Dress Travel Box

  •     Ensure the box is the correct dimensions for your airline. Check your airline website for their carry on allowances.
  •     Please visit Life Memories Box Company where we have a section entitled ‘Will your dress fit’ here we have photographs which our brides have sent to us of themselves wearing their dresses. This will help you to envisage if your dress will fit into the box or not.
  •     We include instructions with the box on how to fold your dress and carefully enclose it in the acid free tissue, we include 20 sheets of this with your box.
  •     Make sure you choose a box which is strong enough for the job, the cheaper boxes on the market are generally made of a single wall corrugated board – ours is twin wall and very strong. As always you get what you pay for, so when transporting the most expensive dress you will possibly ever wear, why compromise on the quality of the box you carry it in.

Celebrating 16 years of Life Memories Box Company.

We are a small, family-run business based in Leicestershire. Julie started the business in 2000 when she had the idea of creating a range of keepsake boxes. Very quickly the Wedding Dress Storage Boxes followed and soon after,  the Wedding Travel Boxes were added to the range. It was when Julie travelled to Las Vegas for her own wedding that she recognised the need for a bride to carry her wedding dress safely with her onto the plane … the rest is history.
In the past 16 years our boxes have literally flown all over the world.

Travelling with your Wedding Dress

Towel Tidy Strap

18 Oct

We have all experienced the age old problem of placing our towel on our sunbed/lounger only to find that the towel has slipped down again by the time you sit down.  This elasticated Towel Tidy Strap will keep you towel in place and look decorative too.  For the ladies we have added diamante to bling up your sunbathing.
Ideal for use when cruising as the wind almost always seems to be present, but in fact the Towel Tidy Strap is perfect for your sun lounger anywhere from poolside to the beach or even your own garden.
Why not use your Towel Tidy Strap to keep your beach towel rolled and easy to carry. I recently used my Tidy Towel Strap on Royal Caribbean’s ‘Independence of the Seas’ and never lost my towel once.
Over the coming weeks we will be adding variations in both colour and diamante … so watch this space.

Details: 32mm wide and will stretch to fit most sunbeds.
