The wedding gift: while that used to mean a department store registry list of homewares, wedding gift lists have become a bit of a contemporary conundrum. With so many brides and grooms already living together before tying the knot, many traditional gifts have become things of the past, leaving lots of guests stumped.
But they needn’t be. With modern times come modern ideas and, increasingly, a focus on making sure gifts are meaningful as well as practical. One of the biggest parts not just of the wedding day but also of the whole wedding experience is the bride’s dress. This one gown brings back fond memories of sipping bubbly in boutiques; seeing your mum cry because you look so beautiful; finding the only other ‘one’ to your new hubby, not forgetting your entire wedding day itself.
Preserving those memories and all the gown’s glory will mean so much in years to come, and Johnsons have the perfect present to let your guests give you the chance to do just that. By purchasing a Wedding Dress Cleaning & Preservation voucher, the guest gives you the gift of keeping your dress as perfectly as when you first picked it.
As part of the service, a Johnsons wedding dress specialist will inspect your dress in a UV chamber to highlight even the most hidden marks, before gowns that need it are cleaned with gentle GreenEarth products and wrapped in acid-free tissue paper for colour preservation. You’ll receive your dress back in a beautiful box that will continue to keep it safe from light, dust and moisture in the time to come, so you really can treasure it and all the memories forever.
So brides, whether you’ve yet to send out your gift list details in your invitations or are fending off questions left, right and centre from guests keen to get their gift right, here’s a gift idea you’ll never forget.
