Helpful Tips When Posting a Wedding Dress

  • As always, we remind our customers to make sure that the item is properly packed especially if you ship a wedding dress. We do not recommend simply rolling the dress up and placing it in a large plastic bag wrapped up with tape as the bag could easily damage during transit and the dress may get dented, and any claim would be rejected by our Claims Team if the item has poor quality packaging. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes.
  • You can track the shipment of the wedding dress as well as it continuing to deliver. Some of our services come with a signature which means that it has been delivered to its proposed endpoint and you have achieved that part of the bargain.
  • Reminder, if the parcel you want to deliver is urgently needed, select an express courier service. Except your customer has paid extra for a quick delivery, then you may want to avoid the added charge of Special Delivery.
  • Always read and check the terms and conditions of shipping. Be assured that you wholeheartedly comprehended what levels of compensation you have, how long you have to make a claim, what you and your customer’s responsibilities are and what level of carriage guarantee you can take out.
  • Date of delivery – if the dress is really needed urgently, try our Next Day courier service but only applicable for domestic shipments which is UK to UK.

Frequently Asked Questions When Sending Wedding Dresses

As per our research online, a wedding dress can’t be more than 5kg.
