    Amazing mother and daughter. Professional, my wedding outfits were immaculately ironed and stayed like that even transporting them to Niagara. Was a relief to know such amazing service exists with amazing people running it. Thank you 🙏🏻

    These people are experts!

    I bought my wedding dress secondhand, and it was a little dingy with stains along the hem. Grace completely restored it to its original white hue - it looked brand new! They were so thorough, documenting everything, and even sewed in new hanger straps. Their expertise was well worth the price!

    Thank you Jillian! We love these pictures!! We are so thrilled about how stunning your gown looked on your wedding day. Thank you for allowing us to care for your previously loved wedding gown! Wising you health & happiness always!

    Amazing quality

    Wow what can I say, Nadine and her mother were just absolutely amazing when it came to my wedding dress. The amount of work and effort they put in truly showed and I was floored when I went to pick up my dress. It was absolutely spotless, after purchasing from The Brides Project second hand, and Nadine did not rush through the process at all. She explained everything that was done and gave us great advice for next steps with the dress. She also gave me a copy of the artistic drawing they made with their artist and a personalized note which I didn’t even find until after I unwrapped my dress, what a lovely surprise ! You can absolutely trust them even with the most delicate of dresses, I highly recommend this beautiful family.

    Knocked my socks off!!

    This review comes far too late, though it is better late than never.

    Words cannot, CANNOT express the care that Nadine provided - I can't even call it a service, because this was truly care.

    I had a beautiful Leanne Marshall custom wedding dress, and a dry cleaner completely destroyed it by putting a 100% silk wedding gown in a hot water wash...unfathomable. My dad had gotten the gown cleaned for me to surprise me, and when I opened the box I saw a greyed and yellowed shrunken, creased and ruined dress. It was so, so sad for everyone.

    I spoke to gown specialists in the states and Canada including two services that restore damaged gowns for Museums. They all said there was abosolutely nothing that could be done.

    I then decided to reach out to Grace Gown Care and heard back immediately from Nadine. She was so kind and compassionate, and we had many emails and calls over a few months trying to think of what the best solution would be. Nadine said she would try to restore the gown but couldn't make any promises given how ruined it was. She and the team worked so hard to gently and carefully restore the gown, doing the best they could to undo the damage that was done.

    I was absolutely stunned to hear from Nadine that she had managed to help bring the gown back to a place where it still resembled a bridal gown - I then saw it and was completely blown away. Nadine did more than that - she is such a compassionate and wonderful person who truly cares so much about what she goes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    Shipping across country during a pandemic

    After my wedding I went to Grace Wedding Gown Specialists to get my dress both cleaned and preserved. Who would have known that life would get crazy and I not only moved out of the province soon after but a global pandemic hit! I worked with their amazing team to get my dress shipped to me safely and without any issues. Throughout the entire process they worked closely with me every step of the way and constantly kept me updated with both emails and phone calls. I always felt like my dress was in great hands! Can't thank them enough for taking such great care of my dress. It looks fantastic!

    Grace Wedding Gown Specialists - Gown Care's reply:

    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review! "Who would have thought" is most definitely the phrase of 2020/2021! With all the new changes in the world we've done some pivoting to our services to allow our clients to work with us, regardless of where they are. We're so happy we were able to work with you on one of our first gown shipments out of province! Thank you for allowing us the privilege of working with you on your gown. Wishing you health & happiness always!

    Expert care

    I bought my dress second hand and Grace Wedding Gown Specialists was recommended for their cleaning services. It was easy to book an appointment online. Grace was very friendly during the consultation and she was transparent about her assessment and the cleaning process. The turnaround time (approx 6 weeks) and pricing is very fair. Nadine helped when it came to picking it up and I couldn't be happier with quality of the cleaning! The location wasn't the easiest for me to travel to but it was absolutely worth it.

    Grace Wedding Gown Specialists - Gown Care's reply:

    Thank you so much Nicole for allowing us to care for you gown. We are so thrilled that you were pleased with the gown care results and are so happy that you were able to use our services despite the distance in traveling to us. We wish you health & happiness always!

    Great Experience!

    Grace Gown Care did an amazing job with the cleaning of my Stella York dress. From the ceremony to reception the entire day was outside on dirt, patio stone, grass, etc. My dress had a bunch of cranberry juice stains down the front and it was sad to see it so disheveled after the big day. Nadine was super quick to respond to my messages and concerns, and was very flexible with booking me appointment times. The assessment was very thorough and she shared a great wealth of information and knowledge thus very reassuring. The cost was much better than I had been expecting and the turnaround time was even faster than predicted as well. My dress is back to the beautiful state I had purchased it in. If you are looking for efficient timing, excellent service and fair pricing check out Grace Gown Care.

    Grace Wedding Gown Specialists - Gown Care's reply:

    Wow! Thanks Paula for your encouraging feedback. We take such pride in our gown care and more importantly we strive to make our time with you a memorable experience from start to finish. The greatest joy I get to experience one-on-one with clients are the reactions in the post care reveal, especially when it comes to pesky cranberry juice stains! It was our pleasure to work with our scheduling needs and keep you informed along the way. We wish you health & happiness always!

    Nadine and Grace Team are a dream!

    Thank you so much for taking such great care of my WTOO separates gown (Effie Skirt and Lula Corset). You exceeded my expectations and I'm so impressed with not only the work you've done, but your customer service. Nadine was a delight and really made me feel like I was leaving my gown in good hands.

    We will definitely keep you in mind for future occasions and will recommend to our friends and family. Thank you again!!

    Amazing work

    Amazing results! My dress had “seen a good party” and Nadine, and her crew, were able to make it seem like it was like new! The sequins sparkle, and the stains from dirt and grass are completely gone!

    Grace Wedding Gown Specialists - Gown Care's reply:

    Thank you Anna for your kind feedback. We are so happy that you were pleased with the results of your recent gown care. Nothing beats getting rid of dirt and grass stains and making sequins sparkle instead! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to care for your gorgeous gown. Wishing you health and happiness always!
