UK Wedding Dress Cleaning Service

UK Wedding Dress Cleaning Service

Wedding Dress Cleaning Services in the UK
He’s finally asked the big question, and the day you’ve dreamed of since you were a girl is now just around the corner. So many things to organize: the venue for the ceremony and the reception, how far and wide to send the wedding invitations, dresses for the bridesmaids and, of course, your wedding dress.

Today’s weddings are more expensive than ever, regularly comparing in price to a new car. Not the least of the expenses is the wedding dress. For many married women, the wedding dress is far and away the most expensive article of clothing they will ever wear. While the occasion certainly warrants it – after all, it’s a rare event in one’s life – a wedding dress is typically expensive to acquire and, potentially when searching for professional wedding dress cleaning services, can prove expensive..

Although one never sees it in photos taken by a professional photographer several days before the wedding, the potential for your wedding dress to acquire stains is significant. Depending on weather conditions, inside temperature and the nervousness that is to be expected on your wedding day, you may have sweat stains form in the bodice area and elsewhere. Stains from food and wine at the wedding reception are another distinct possibility. Some of the most common ones, such as sugar stains from champagne and cake icing, are nearly invisible at the time they are created, and these stains can set and darken over time.

The good news is that, although your wedding dress will not likely survive the big day entirely stain-free, taking steps ahead of time to ensure that the dress is professionally cleaned and preserved within an appropriate timeframe will greatly improve the odds of your dress being restored to its original condition. Taking the dress for cleaning within one month of the wedding is sufficient for many wedding dresses (so no need to shorten the honeymoon to save your dress), assuming there are no stains that need immediate attention. Otherwise, arrange to have it cleaned within a few days or as soon after the wedding as possible.

All brides-to-be should understand the cleaning and preservation process for wedding dresses so that appropriate arrangements can be made prior to the day of the wedding. While considerably more complicated than that of most other special-care garments, a good bit of planning and forethought will ensure that your cherished wedding dress and future family heirloom will survive the decades as well as the new life you are about to begin.

First and foremost, understand that the care for such a garment will be considerably more specific and expensive than for most other dry-clean-only or other special-care garments. If the process seems a bit overwhelming and you feel as though you have been tasked with preserving a treasure, it’s because you have. With that in mind, you will want to begin by consulting with a specialty wedding dress cleaner. One way that you will know you are dealing with a reputable company is that they will not charge a flat fee for all wedding dresses. Different dresses have different cleaning and storage requirements, and the right wedding dress cleaner will recommend a telephone consultation or that you bring in your wedding dress to be inspected before they provide a quote for the cleaning and preservation.

Where preservation is concerned, you will want to make sure that your wedding dress cleaning company makes a point of preserving your wedding dress in acid-free tissue paper when storing it in an archival box. The museum preservation method is another option, but it usually costs more. Once you have had your wedding dress cleaned and preserved, be sure to store the dress in a cool, dark area free of moisture and sunlight. Avoid storing the dress in areas of the house such as the attic or basement, as they typically do not benefit from the climate controls in the main living space. If storing in a rented storage space, make sure that it is climate-controlled.

As with many other aspects of your wedding plans, it may seem as though the devil is in the details when it comes to having your wedding dress professionally cleaned and preserved. By knowing those details beforehand and making arrangements with a specialty cleaning and preservation company, you can rest assured that the dress in which you have made a substantial investment will be just as beautiful several decades from now as the day you walked down the aisle.

Imagine handing your precious wedding gown into the protection of the safest, most caring hands there are; gentle hands that will love it, respect it, nurture it and expertly clean and restore it, preserving the exquisite memories invested in every thread now and for the future.

A New Designer Bathroom for 2015

A New Designer Bathroom for 2015

A New Year, A New Designer Bathroom for 2015
A new year is an excellent time to make improvements in various aspects of your life, and some areas ready for a change may include such all-important areas of your home as the kitchen and bath. If you have plans to remodel a bathroom in your home in 2015, it will be helpful to know what will be fashionable in 2015 and, likely, for years to come. Following are some trends to help you plan your bathroom remodel and guide your selection of individual components.

When planning a bathroom remodel, it’s easy to let one’s preferred components – tubs, shower cubicles and the like – dictate how the rest of the bathroom will look or become the dominant “design” components. The truth is, no free-standing tub, no matter how beautiful or expensive, can itself guide the design of a luxury bathroom; at best, it would be appreciated individually despite its failure to contribute to any sort of integrated design. By beginning with a sense of the look and feel you would like for your remodelled bathroom, the components you choose will look nice both individually and as part of a seamless whole.

Natural beauty components such as stone feature walls were a hot trend in 2014 which is expected to continue into 2015 and beyond. Think of the calming effect of a Japanese rock garden and then work similar design components into your bathroom. The “water features” are a given, so it’s simply a matter of bringing even more of nature’s tranquillity indoors to create that calming effect and enhance the overall experience.

Plant life was an underutilized design component in most bathrooms until this past year, and the incorporation of tropical plants into luxury bathrooms is also expected to continue in 2015. Long overdue for their time in the bathroom and other areas of the home, given the increased attention to environmental pollution in recent years, tropical plants clean the air naturally and even radiate negative ions, contributing to the calming effect created by other design elements from nature.

The spa treatment
That all said, there is a lot to love about luxury bathroom remodels that bring the spa home with you. Free-standing tubs by suppliers such as Victoria and Albert Bathrooms make beautiful centrepieces and even complement bathroom designs focusing on natural beauty by providing soft, natural contours. Spacious custom vanities by the likes of Burgbad Bathrooms will add both beauty and practicality by giving her the space she needs to get ready for the day – or to wind down in the evening – while allowing others to use their own space as they prefer.

Many Burgbad bathroom furniture pieces, including sleek wood shelving and wall-mounted vanities, work especially well in bathrooms which reflect an appreciation for the beauty of nature. Imagine having such a bathroom for yourself; you’ll most certainly feel an improvement in your quality of life from the first time you step across the heated floor to your beautiful new tub for a relaxing soak surrounded by calming, natural colours and features.

Search Engine Optimisation: Benefits for your Business

Search Engine Optimisation: Benefits for your Business

Search Engine Optimisation: Benefits for your Business
Picture this: you’re a handyman in Yorkshire, you have a number of local competitors and you advertise in the local newspaper and Yellow Pages and on social media. You think you’ve got all the marketing bases covered, so why does the competition seem to be getting all the business?

If you have not yet learned about some of the newer and more effective forms of online advertising, then there has never been a better time to educate yourself on the benefits of search engine optimisation or SEO. While experts in the field of Internet marketing can provide endless reasons for investing in SEO for your business, most of these reasons come down to visibility and cost.

Increased traffic to your website
At this point you may be saying to yourself, “But I don’t need a website, I run a handyman service!” If so, then realise that a website is standing between you and a grand opportunity to increase sales for your business. In the past, it was enough for handymen and others in the skilled trades to do mail outs, leave flyers in mailboxes and have an advert in the Yellow Pages or the local newspaper.

These days, the Yellow Pages have been all but replaced by Internet search, newspaper sales and subscriptions continue to decline, and those flyers and mail outs are going straight into the recycle bin if the recipient has no need for your services at that precise moment.

If you have a company website, though, then you have a way for future clients to find you through an online search. With your company website, clients can set appointments for your services and provide reviews upon completion of the work, and you can take your online presence to the next level through an effective SEO marketing campaign. SEO marketing is simply a way of drawing traffic to your website through strategic use of keywords and key phrases that are relevant to what your potential clients are seeking out.

With a well-designed company website and SEO marketing campaign, you will go from one handyman among many in your area to one whose company information is front and centre in online search results. And companies listed on the first page of search results are generally considered to be more trustworthy simply because their keywords match those used by the interested party. Not that anyone need question your skills or trustworthiness, but why continue to lose market share when visibility is all that stands in your way?

Lower Marketing Costs
Paying year after year to maintain an advert in the Yellow Pages or to place adverts with your local media outlets will likely do more good than not advertising at all, but have you ever compared the return on investment in traditional forms of advertising to newer ones such as SEO? Again, what sets SEO apart from any other marketing strategy is that it brings your company to the attention of only the people who are searching for it rather than to everyone in the area who has a phone book.

A one-time investment in SEO will likely bring more clients to your door per dollar spent than any other form of advertising. In the end, the advantages of visibility and cost add up to the greatest possible return on investment with the least amount of bother on your part once your company’s SEO marketing campaign is in place.

Direct Submit Internet Marketing Services Direct Submit Internet Marketing Services specialises in SEO and other Internet marketing strategies for UK businesses both large and small. No matter your advertising budget, we will work with you to develop a campaign to help your clients find you right when they need you.
