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......Sent on 03/02/2014
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.Sent on 04/07/2018
