Will My Dress Fit?
To help you establish if your dress will fit into the box we suggest you lay your dress on a bed, fold the bodice over the skirt and fold in the sides and any sleeves. You may need to fold the dress twice more, once at thigh level and again above the waist – making a rectangle. Press down gently and measure the dimensions of your dress… this will give you an idea of the box size you require.

Need it in a hurry?   Next Day Delivery only £2.00
Order Before 12 noon and for an EXTRA charge we can despatch on next day delivery. Please select delivery option at check out.  *Orders placed Monday thru Thursday only, orders placed Friday, Saturday and Sunday will arrive on the following Tuesday.

Elasticated Straps. Non adjustable.
A little bit extra peace of mind…
These practical elasticated 30mm wide elastic straps have been designed specifically to fit our boxes.
They bring an extra level of security for your dress once packed into the box and are priced at just £3.00.
For a small additional fee you can ‘Bling Your Straps’ with a touch of Diamante. These are ideal for use on your sunbed to secure your towel in place and stop it blowing away.


Shoe and Tiara Bags
Pack your shoes and tiara. These bags will keep them safe.
100% White Cotton drawstring bags.
Tiara Bag: Small Drawstring Bag 20cm(w) x 24cm(h).
Shoe Bags: 25cm (w) x 36cm (h) or 30cm (w) x 44cm (h).

Wedding Dress Travel Box

We suggest you speak to your dress supplier about the best way to pack your wedding dress, most are happy to help and do this for you.  If however, you will be doing it yourself these simple instructions will help you on your way. two pair of hands are better than one!
• Remove all jewellery and watches which may snag your dress.
• Wash your hands and ensure the area to be used is clean.
• Before you begin, cover any brooches or buckles with small pieces of tissue to prevent any possibility of snagging.
• Take 4 sheets of tissue and lay over the sides of the box.
• Fold one sheet of tissue in half and place into the bottom of the box · now set aside.
• Fold one sheet of tissue in half and place it onto the surface where you will be folding your dress – large table, double bed or clean floor area.
• Using this folded piece of tissue as your guide – lay your dress on top of it face down with the waist line on the folded edge.
• Draw an imaginary line from the tissue down the length of your dress and fold in from the righthand side, placing tissue into the fold as you go. Repeat from the left.
• You should now have a long narrow dress the width of a sheet of tissue ·  place tissue along the length of the dress, overlapping each by 50mm.
• Fold 30cm up from the bottom, repeat this process until you reach the waistline of the dress.
• Folding the top part of your dress backwards onto the skirt, you may want to scrunch      some tissue and place into the bodice.
• Lift and place your dress into the box.
• Fold and bring over the tissue from the side edges of the box and then from the top to completely cover the dress.
• Finally, fold up to sheet laying out of the bottom of the box, fold to a point and secure with the round sealing label.
• Close the box. Tie any ribbon which may be included with your chosen style.
• It may be necessary to trim the ribbon with sharp scissors.

If you have security straps, this is the time to add them.
Once you arrive at your destination you should remove your dress from the box and hang it as soon as possible, please get specialist advice about YOUR dress from your dress supplier.
You may also want to check ahead with your travel company/hotel to see what pressing/steaming services they can provide.
