Gown Alterations & Cleaning

Grace Wedding Gown Specialists

Grace and her team in Scarborough are absolutely phenomenal.  Grace is extremely knowledgeable about the cleaning needs of wedding gowns, and recently came to TBP to take a look at what we have on the rack.  She assured me that there is NOTHING on the rack that won’t come perfectly clean using the techniques available.  She will also tackle silk, and took a gown we had with candle wax dripped on the skirt, and rendered it perfectly SPOTLESS!  Cleaning prices vary from about $70-$120 depending on the complexity of the gown, and as I’m sure you all know, that is EXTREMELY reasonable.  TBP clients are also offered a further $10 discount from these amazing prices!!!  WOOT!

Grace is located at 3678 St. Clair Ave E, and you can reach her at 416-261-2204 if you have any questions at all about your gown cleaning needs.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

I’m just delighted to welcome such a lovely person, and such an incredible service to what we offer here at The Brides’ Project!  Welcome on board Grace!!!

Val’s Bridal Cleaning Service

Val has been cleaning bridal gowns by hand for the last 10 years, and is the infamous founder of “Play it Again Val’s” in Ajax. She has extensive experience given her own previous gown resale business. She charges an extremely reasonable $99.00 to clean synthetic gowns. You can discuss wiser alternatives with Val should you choose to keep your dress… she can tell you how to keep it beautiful for years to come. Finally, after meeting Val and discussing gown cleaning… she amazed me with one account of her experiences. She acquired gowns with black spray paint on them… and GOT IT ALL OUT! We both agreed that there is really very little that can’t be removed, so your gown will be in expert hands.
