I’m going through the dress cleaning process now and wondering what other bees’ recent experiences are in NYC. I’m using Chris’ French Cleaners–they are my usual cleaner (and are on the expensive side), but also do a lot of wedding dress business judging from all the dresses in their store. I have to admit I did not shop around at all because I just didn’t feel like dealing with it, but thought a little info might be helpful for other brides.
I’m paying $350 for just cleaning, no special box or anything as I plan to sell. I was told it would take 4-6 weeks but we’re about a month past that since allegedly mine needed a second round of cleaning (oh well, I don’t need to wear it again in the near future…) What I do like about Chris (other than being local) is that they have you come in and check the cleaning job before they press it so they don’t set any stains. I have to say, I am surprised they got the hem as clean as they did considering we had an outdoor reception and the grass was wet–it was pretty bad.
