EXPIRED

HELP! wedding dress dry cleaner/steam press

hi - anyone has experience with good reliable professional dry cleaners? i looked online but some are exorbitant (at least £75). the dress is not fussy just classic lines made modern (think audrey hepburn) but it's made of tafetta silk so needs to be treated professionally.

we'll be spending that weekend in a hotel in kensington so i am looking for a place that can reliably deliver to the hotel the day before D-day.

rep for helpful advice thanks

If you collect Tesco clubcard points, you can spend your vouchers at Johnsons cleaners - worth 4 x the value in deals. I got my wedding dress dry cleaned for £80 - just £20 in clubcard vouchers.

oh shoot - not as many points as i thought. do they disappear or something over the years ... nvm.
thanks for the johnsons tip! repped.

They do expire but they last about 3 years. If you think some have disappeared, you can ring Tesco's and they will re-send any that you haven't spent - they will then cancel your unspent ones. Probably worth giving them a call if you think you've lost some. Also, you can use them as part payment, so if you have£10 you can convert that to £40 deals then pay the extra. (You must order the deals vouchers - they take about 5 days to come through - Johnsons don't accept the vouchers you receive through the post). Hope this helps.

update:
i found one recommended by my colleague who did art direction for shoots and told me to go to Blossoms & Brownes Sycamore, apparently they do celebs and royalty. so the dress was passed as an evening dress so about £25 instead of £150 for wedding dress.

just an update really. i put it in as evening/opera dress and the bill was £16 not £150 if it was a wedding dress. they even delivered it close to the hotel we're staying - harrods branch. perfect. felt like a million dollars (not quite pounds), and they are by royal appointment, polite staff no hassle.
