have to post about an amazing supplier I have had the pleasure in dealing with and unfortunately a really negative experience I have had with another supplier. Before my experience I always assumed that dry cleaners did just that dry cleaned however unfortunately after my Vera Wang veil was destroyed by a ‘dry cleaner’ I realise this is not the case! I cannot urge you all enough that if you value your dress and veil research where you get it dry cleaned and ensure it is not just put in a washing machine as was done to my veil. If anybody wants to know the name of the supplier who destroyed my veil (by washing it) while advertising themselves as a Wedding dress dry cleaning specialist please PM me, they are a chain of dry cleaners and really should be avoided for Wedding dresses. Now I want to mention Harmony Dry Cleaners in Clondalkin (they are the dry cleaners Vera Wang, Brown Thomas use – that’s a recommendation in itself!) but I dealt with Paddy (owner) and his daughter Alison who are the nicest, most helpful people who went out of their way to help me and I really cannot recommend them enough. They are dry cleaning specialists and there is nothing about dry cleaning that they don’t know. They have been in the business for years and treat each garment like it’s their own. It’s rare you get such care attention in this day and age and I really cannot recommend them enough, your items will be treated like spun gold with them. Vera Wang kindly provided them with some material from my veil which they steamed (like the dry cleaners alleged they did to my veil) and needless to say it came out perfect showing that the original dry cleaners were not honest in their dealings. I hope this email helps somebody and feel free to ask any questions! :wv :wv
