Our Free Wedding Dress Cleaning Consultation

Before entrusting us with your cherished wedding dress, take advantage of our complimentary cleaning consultation. This is an opportunity to chat with our gown care experts and discuss your dress in detail before service.

During the consultation, we will:

  • Examine Your Gown Thoroughly: We will look over every inch of your wedding dress to assess the current condition. This includes analysing fabrics, beading, embroidery, bodice, hems, and linings. We check for any stains, discolouration, or other issues needing attention.
  • Discuss Your Wedding Gown’s History: Let us know background details like where/when it was purchased, how it was stored, if it’s a vintage heirloom, etc. This helps us understand any special care instructions.
  • Review Cleaning Options: We will explain cleaning methods best suited to your gown’s fabrics, embellishments, and construction. This may include customised hand-washing, spot cleaning, or professional dry cleaning or a combination of these.
  • Address Any Problem Areas: We understand your dress may have some problem spots you want improved before preserving it so we invite you to point out any stains, discolouration, or other flaws you want fixed, and we’ll discuss how to make your gown look its absolute best.
  • Discuss Preservation Of Your Gown: We offer heirloom-quality storage solutions to protect your gown after cleaning. This includes custom boxing, acid-free tissue wrapping, and archival storage bags.
  • Provide Costs: We will provide a written quote outlining projected costs based on your gown’s cleaning requirements. There are no hidden fees.
  • Schedule Service: Select a convenient pickup date for us to collect your dress if you’re unable to drop it off to one of our shops. We also set a timeframe for completing service and returning your refreshed gown.
If you can’t come to one of our shops then fear not! We’ll be happy to do the free consultation over the phone. If there are particular issues you want addressed, then you can send us some photos of the dress and we’ll discuss them during the call.

A Dress's Journey With QClean

Why Choose QClean for your wedding dress cleaning?

Wedding Dress Cleaning - Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may still have lots of questions before feeling ready to book our services. That’s why we offer a free no-commitment consultation to discuss your gown in detail. Whether it’s an in-person consultation, or by phone, we’ll happily answer your questions to put your mind at ease.

Here are some of the most frequently asked wedding dress cleaning questions and our answers.
Ideally, you should get your wedding dress cleaned within 2-4 weeks after the wedding. Stains from substances like wine, food, sweat, and makeup can become more difficult to remove over time. The longer they remain on the fabric, the more they seep into the fibres, making them harder to extract. The sooner you get the dress cleaned the more you increase the chances of completely removing these stains.
For a thorough cleaning,  we usually say that you should allow 2-3 weeks, but it can vary based on the dress’s condition and the specific treatments required. We’ll provide an estimate during your free consultation. If you are bringing us a dress that you need cleaned before your wedding, then we’ll make sure to complete in time for the ceremony.
Understanding the sentimental and monetary value of your wedding gown, we’ve tailored our services to offer both excellence and affordability. Our gown cleaning services typically range between €150 to €300, a small investment to preserve a lifetime of memories. The pricing is determined by various factors such as the fabric’s delicacy, the intricacy of beading, the length of the train, and the overall condition of the dress. Rest assured, every Euro spent is a testament to our commitment to restoring your dress to its original splendour. Our promise is that there will be no hidden charges. Once we’ve examined the dress and given you a quote, that will be the final price you pay. Regardless of the number of times we might have to work on difficult stains.
We use specialised treatments and cleaning agents designed specifically for delicate fabrics to effectively remove even the toughest stains without damaging the dress.
Absolutely! Our experts are trained to handle delicate materials with utmost care, ensuring no harm comes to the intricate details of your gown.
Yes, we are specialists in cleaning delicate vintage and antique fabrics using gentle techniques.

Yes, we have specialised treatments to restore the original colour of yellowed dresses, though results can vary based on the severity and age of the discolouration. In all cases the dress will be significantly improved over its condition prior to cleaning.
While we utilise advanced techniques and specialised treatments tailored to wedding dresses, there may be instances where certain stains are extremely challenging to remove completely. Factors such as the type of stain, the length of time it has been on the fabric, the material of the dress, and previous cleaning attempts can all influence the success of stain removal. For example, stains from substances like ink or certain dyes might be more resistant to cleaning, especially if they have been left untreated for an extended period. Similarly, if a dress has been previously cleaned improperly, it may cause the stain to set further. We will always communicate openly with you about what can be realistically achieved and ensure that we proceed with the utmost care to preserve the integrity of the dress.
We provide complimentary pickup and delivery service within a 50k radius of any of our shops. This covers all of Dublin & Wicklow, most of Kildare and parts of Meath, Carlow & Wexford. For other areas we arrange a convenient pick-up by courier service for a low cost of €20 each way. We can pick up from your home, your place of work or any other place that’s convenient for you.
Not at all. Walk-ins are always welcome and is a regular part of our business. However, making an appointment ensures we can give you and your dress the attention you deserve right away.
Absolutely. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied with our wedding dress cleaning service, we’ll happily refund you the cost of cleaning.
Rest assured, in the unlikely event that you find a stain after receiving your cleaned dress, we’ll take care of it. You can either drop it back to us or we’ll arrange a collection, all at our expense. The stain will be treated and the dress re-cleaned without any extra charges.

Absolutely. In fact, we offer specially discounted packages for cleaning  the wedding day outfits of the bride & bridesmaids,  groom and groomsmen, and parents of both bride and groom. Ask us for more details of our special offers.
Yes we do. We don’t just specialise in wedding dress cleaning; we extend our expert gown cleaning services to a variety of special occasions. Whether you have a ball gown from your debs, an elegant evening dress from a gala, or a sophisticated formal gown from a black-tie event, QClean is your go-to cleaning service for all types of formalwear. Our meticulous cleaning process ensures that every gown receives the same level of care and attention to detail that we provide for wedding dresses.
We prioritise eco-friendly cleaning methods and products to ensure both your dress and the environment are treated with care. Unlike other dry cleaners who may employ Perchloroethylene (Perc), a petrochemical-based solvent that can remove embellishments and alter the design of your dress, we use sustainable alternatives that are just as effective but far less harmful. Our modern facilities are equipped with the latest green technologies, and our cleaning agents are biodegradable and non-toxic. This allows us to deliver impeccable results without compromising the integrity of your gown or the well-being of our planet.
Yes, we are often asked this question. We can arrange for your dress to be collected from the hotel or other venue where you celebrated your wedding. For brides who are heading off on honeymoon immediately after the wedding, this can be the ideal option. It means that we get the opportunity to work on any stains before they set in. And in many cases, the dress will be cleaned and ready to return to you when the honeymoon is over.
Storing your cleaned and preserved wedding dress is an important step in maintaining its beauty for years to come. We recommend storing your dress in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and humidity. Basements and attics are generally not suitable due to fluctuations in temperature and moisture levels. Instead, think about placing it in a wardrobe situated in a living space, such as a bedroom, where the temperature is more consistent.
We understand that entrusting your precious wedding dress to someone is a big decision, and we want to assure you that your gown is in the safest hands with QClean. Unlike some dry cleaners who send out dresses to specialists, we handle every aspect of the cleaning process in-house. Our modern facilities and highly trained staff are specialised in wedding dress cleaning and preservation. From the initial inspection to the final touches, your dress never leaves our hands, ensuring that it receives the personalised and meticulous care it deserves. This allows us to guarantee the highest quality and to address any of your concerns directly.
