NEW!! Grace Wedding Gown Specialists
Grace and her team in Scarborough are absolutely phenomenal. Grace is extremely knowledgeable about the cleaning needs of wedding gowns, and recently came to TBP to take a look at what we have on the rack. She assured me that there is NOTHING on the rack that won’t come perfectly clean using the techniques available. She will also tackle silk, and took a gown we had with candle wax dripped on the skirt, and rendered it perfectly SPOTLESS! Cleaning prices vary from about $70-$120 depending on the complexity of the gown, and as I’m sure you all know, that is EXTREMELY reasonable. TBP clients are also offered a further $10 discount from these amazing prices!!! WOOT!
Grace is located at 3678 St. Clair Ave E, and you can reach her at 416-261-2204 if you have any questions at all about your gown cleaning needs. You can also visit their website by clicking here.
I’m just delighted to welcome such a lovely person, and such an incredible service to what we offer here at The Brides’ Project! Welcome on board Grace!!!
Val’s Bridal Cleaning Service
Val has been cleaning bridal gowns by hand for the last 10 years, and is the infamous founder of “Play it Again Val’s” in Ajax. She has extensive experience given her own previous gown resale business. She charges an extremely reasonable $85.00 to clean gowns, and offers a $10 coupon to our clients. Val charges $50 for boxing, and $34 for a cotton gown bag. You can discuss wiser alternatives with Val should you choose to keep your dress… she can tell you how to keep it beautiful.
Finally, after meeting Val and discussing gown cleaning… she amazed me with one account of her experiences. She acquired gowns with black spray paint on them… and GOT IT ALL OUT! So, if you have any fears about her ability, that is one accomplishment that no dry cleaner can offer to the best of my knowledge!!!! We both agreed that there is really very little that can’t be removed, so your gown will be in expert hands.

Pom Penner is one fantastic lady who is extremely multi-talented! She is the dressmaker for Olwyn Fleury Haute Couture, a pattern-maker, and seamstress extraordinaire. You can trust Pom without a doubt with your wedding dress, and she will make it fit like a glove! You can reach Pom at 905-479-4566 and make sure to tell her I said ‘hi’!!!!
Pom (and her assistant, Betty) will also be sure to keep you entertained as you visit for your fittings… all our clients will agree that they never forget meeting our dear Pom and always enjoy her company!
Pearl is a total gem (pardon the pun). Pearl is personable, knowledgeable, and professional. Pearl Seto has been doing alterations for 25 years for the salons and has also spent many years working for Alfred Sung. By doing private work for TBP, Pearl is embracing our commitment to quality and service and contributing to our brides and the community.
Pearl and I discussed various standard alterations, costs, etc., and in most cases, rather than paying $300 and up in the salons, her charges average about $80-$120. Keep in mind, if you’re asking for something drastic, it will cost you more. I’ve had nothing but rave reviews of her work and pricing.
She is located at 63 Duxbury Drive in Scarborough, and can be reached at 416-298-7899. Please help support such a wonderful, generous and hard-working woman. Thank you Pearl… for finding us at The Brides’ Project.
