Expert cleaning skills from an experienced team
Most brides would like their wedding gown restored to pristine condition. Whether you wish to preserve your wedding gown or are going to sell it, we provide the service and unmatched expertise that you require. Even if your gown doesn’t appear to require cleaning, after time dust will begin to damage the clothing, which is why it is so important to have it specially cleaned and stored well.
A wedding gown is perhaps the most special and poignant garment a lady will ever own. We understand this, and for this exact reason we are dedicated to providing you with outstanding service in the cleaning of your wedding gown, which is performed in five stages in the following procedure:
Your gown will be inspected prior to cleaning to ascertain what treatment will benefit it best. This is part of a special consultation we carry out.
Your wedding gown then will be pre spotted and treated for specific stain removal and the hems and underskirt(s) treated for mud, grass and general ground dirt. This process takes between one to two hours.
After pre-treating, your gown will be cleaned using the appropriate equipment and materials.
Your wedding gown is re-inspected for any marks that may have become visible after the cleaning process. The whole cycle will be repeated until we are completely satisfied that we have achieved the optimum results. Only then is the gown steam pressed.
Finally, your wedding gown goes on to be packed in a wedding gown non-woven garment bag or packaged in acid free tissue in a specially designed handmade storage box.
Wedding gowns are priced individually based on how elaborate the gown, it’s purchase price and the amount of work required before processing.
We take as much time as needed to make sure your dress is in fantastic condition. With Valette you’re in safe hands!
We also clean bridesmaid’s dresses, wedding suits, confirmation/christening gowns, prom dresses, etc. We appreciate that specialist event wear can often be very expensive, which is why we take such care into making them pristine again and again!
It is extremely easy to get it wrong when cleaning such a delicate piece of clothing, so we 100% recommend bringing your wedding gown in to our specialist team in order to protect your investment for the long term.

I have lived and worked in the Staines area for over twenty years and, usually weekly, used Valette for all sorts of dry cleaning and repairs. The work has always been high quality and ready on time. I have found all the staff to be pleasant, helpful and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending Valette to anyone.Steve ConnorSpelthorne Borough Council
We have been using Valette for over fourteen years on a twice weekly basis. The Valette team are competent and extremely friendly. They are consistent with quality, irrespective of the garments, which have included medieval costumes and delicate, decorative clothing. Because of the business we are in, often the garments are covered in stains. Valette always amazes me with the end result of quality and presentation. I have also taken unusual costumes to be altered but they always get it right. We would not use any other dry-cleaner.Jane Cunningham Director, Intuitive Events, Corporate Entertaining
