Dressing and Steaming is our signature package where we look after you and your Bridal Party from steaming your Gown and dresses all the way through to ensuring that your look picture perfect at the top of the Aisle.
Dressed by Christine will arrive at your chosen Venue, check all the garments to be steamed, and will then discuss the timeline and confirm the ‘ready by time’ with the Bride.
Your Gown along with a veil will be the first to be steamed followed by any other outfits that have been included in the booking. All garments will then be hung ready for Dressing and shoes will be checked and placed near your Gown and Dresses.
Dressing of Mother of the Bride and/or Mother of the Groom usually takes place first followed by Bridesmaid(s) and then Flowergirl(s). Meanwhile, if your Bouquets have been in water, we dry the stems and check for any that may catch on the material of your Gown.
Finally, we dress the Bride. We assist you at every stage from underskirt, buttons, adjusting garters, tying corset backs, to putting your shoes and jewellery on. If you have a large Bridal Party we suggest that, where possible, the Bride is given this time on her own.
We will be on hand for any eventuality that crops up during the run up to Dressing.
If you are being married at the Venue, we will also accompany you to the Ceremony Room to ensue you are Picture Perfect for your walk down the aisle.
Dressed by Christine offer a Bridal Dress Steaming Service at your Venue. You will be surprised what a difference an extra steaming can male to the look and feel to your Gown!
This can be booked for either the day before your wedding or on the Big Day. If you have travelled a distance to your wedding venue it can be difficult to to stop your Gown creasing, even more so if it has been in its protective cover for months. Cost may vary depending on the complexity and style of material, but this service is available for all your Bridal Party’s’ outfits.
All the garments will be hung ready for you to dress yourself.
Don’t forget that we also offer steaming for the members of your Wedding Party. Suits and Shirts can also be as crushed once you arrive at your Venue.
Dressed by Christine provide a ‘white glove’ Bridal Dressing Service. We aim to give a you a stress-free experience so you can relax with your Bridal Party and enjoy your Wedding Day.
You will receive the same level of service as our signature package (minus the steaming) from our arrival at your Venue, right through to the aisle!
Not to be forgotten are the men on your Wedding Day! Dressed by Christine offer a Final Flourish Service where we can check that they are also looking Picture perfect!
For Grooms, Groomsmen, and Father of Bride and/or Father of the Groom we can steam Suits and Shirts, and place Buttonholes, so that everyone looks as polished as the Bride and her Bridesmaids.
We are also able to check Kilts, including the correct length, placement of the sporran, and tying of laces.
