About Our
Wedding Dress Service


It’s not every day that you get married or have a wedding gown cleaned – don’t trust just any dry cleaner with your valuable and sentimental wedding gown.

It’s important to choose a specialist who understands not only how to treat the fine fabrics, high-quality beads and crystals on your gown, but who also understands the fine art of preservation.

Should we encounter a feature we have not come across before, we work with all of Australia’s top Bridal Designers to ensure we treat your gown correctly. Your dress is in safe hands.

We pick up from over 450 suburbs across Sydney on schedule twice each week. Alternatively, call us to book a custom collection from your home, office or hotel concierge.



Our bridal wear team will carefully inspect your gown to determine the correct cleaning methods required and to identify any particular stains or damage that may require additional attention.

We will then advise you of the recommended course of action – providing you with multiple options wherever possible together with a fixed and final quote for approval.



The Shirt Butler are experts at dry cleaning, wet cleaning, spot cleaning and hand cleaning of weddings gowns and bridal wear, using the very best and gentlest chemicals together with the latest techniques.

The particular method(s) used for cleaning your gown will depend on the following:

Any care labels or instructions from the designer / manufacturer

The structure, fabrics and design of your gown

The size, type and quantity of stains

The type and quantity of beading, trims and embellishments



After your wedding gown has been meticulously cleaned and checked it is advisable to have your gown professionally boxed and wrapped in 100% acid free tissue for long term storage to be handed down to future generations.

We recommend this type of service because it protects the gown from insects and sunlight.

As an alternative to boxing, your dress may be hung in an individually made calico bag which may be slipped off easily should you wish to include it in your regular wardrobe.



Depending on the gown our process generally takes 14 days.



We deliver to over 450 suburbs across Sydney on schedule twice each week. Alternatively, call us to book a custom delivery to your home, office or hotel concierge.



We will care and respect your gown as if it is our own and always follow your designer’s care instructions.

The Shirt Butler guarantees that your gown will be professionally cleaned, pressed and packaged by an experienced wedding dress cleaner, using the safest and most effective practices available and using the safest and latest technology.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that all stains will be removed, however we assure you that we will keep making attempts to clean your gown whilst we believe there is a chance to safely improve its condition.

Please note, that in the absence of care labelling or instructions, all items are cleaned gently and cautiously, at the customer’s own risk.


All our wedding dresses work is performed in house by fully qualified and trained staff at our 500 square metre plant in Thornleigh.
