Located in Launceston, Cornwall, The Empty Box Company provide handmade, high-quality wedding-dress preservation and travel boxes that can be delivered worldwide.

Services Offered

Each The Empty Box Company wedding box is handmade using recycled pH neutral board to keep your dress from yellowing.

All of the company’s boxes are made in their workshops in Devon and Surrey by talented artists. You can choose from a wide range of box sizes to suit your dress style. Wedding dress travel boxes are also available, which are accepted as hand luggage by most airlines so that you can keep your gown with you. These boxes also come with a handle to keep the lid in place and come with acid-free paper and packing instructions.

    My wedding dress will be protected forever!

    I bought a gorgeous box from The Empty Box Company 2 months after my wedding, in order to preserve and protect my wedding dress. I chose a stunning purple and gold striped box and it came filled with detailed instructions and proper protective paper, so that I could layer my dress, ensuring that it won't obtain any moisture or mould. My wedding dress box is now safe and sound in my loft, and will be so exciting to bring down every once in a while when I want to reminisce about my wedding or show my future children, grand children, great grandchildren......
    I would say that a box from this company is a 'must have' for any bride-to-be!! And, my top tip would be, buy the box before your wedding, so that you have somewhere to put your dress as soon as it comes back from the dry cleaners!

    The perfect storage for my wedding dress

    Over the moon with my lovely box. It's great that you have such a range of designs to pick from. It's the perfect storage for my wedding dress and the instructions for packing the dress away were very easy to follow. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing one.

    The most beautiful box

    Received my beautiful medium travel box in just 2 days from ordering! When I took it to the dress shop for packing the lady said it was the most beautiful box she had seen (& obviously she sees loads!) & so well made! The price is well worth it, definitely recommend. Thank you.

    Excellent quality

    Received my beautiful box today and am already in love. Made to an excellent quality, I am particularly pleased with the handwritten calligraphy inscription. Very clear, simple, and easy to follow instructions included and well worth the price. Would definitely recommend to others!

    Deeply Impressed

    I already purchased my beautiful wedding gown box, as well as my daughter's baptism gown box at your online shop.
    Both are absolutely stunning and I'm so deeply impressed by the high quality and the love you put into every single piece!

    What a wonderful service

    I have just taken delivery of the most beautiful box for my future daughter in law's wedding dress and wanted to thank you. We are so pleased and just love the ribbon, it was a perfect choice. I would have had this on Thursday but due to weather conditions arranged to have it delivered today. What a wonderful service. Thank you once again.

    Exceeded Expectations

    Just a quick email to say thank you for my wedding dress box. My mother in law had ordered it as a surprise for me, and it has dramatically exceeded any expectations I had. The lace trim is a perfect addition and the personalisation brought tears to my eyes. Something to treasure.

    Highly Recommend

    I purchased one to take our daughters wedding dress in as hand luggage. So many admiring glances and comments. Best bit was the dress travelled really well especially with all the tissue supplied. Would highly recommend.

    So grateful

    We are so grateful to you and the Empty Box company for your excellent sales manner. You have been nothing but kind and honest which is often 'hard to come by' in companies 'now-a-days'. We will be recommending your services to those we know!! My mum is delighted that she has her wedding dress nicely tucked away safe and secure in a beautiful w.box, which we know will protect it perfectly for many years to come. Thank you so much for everything again - we can truly say only good things about the integrity of your company. Many thanks,

    Fantastic Service

    The gold box has just arrived and we unwrapped it with some trepidation…would it be smart enough for our prestigious presentation?!

    And it is perfect; great colour, size and top quality; with some lovely tissue paper too.

    And on top of all this was your fantastic service.
    I only rang you, in a slight panic, 2 days ago and now we have it here. With all the messages in between to tell us it was on its way.

    Please would you ensure that whoever runs Empty Box knows how delighted we are with your help and with the product.
    We will tell everyone here about you.

    Many thanks indeed from us all.
