If you are getting married abroad and need to transport your dress, we can pack it for you. We recommend using our service if you are flying with your gown so that it is kept in the best condition possible, ready for your special day.

Prices are as follows:

Bridal Box Package                       £25

Ruby Frances will pack your gown into one of our custom built bridal boxes. These fit most airline hand luggage dimensions and can be carried onto the plane with you. These boxes can also be used to store the dress in after the wedding, and are also available to purchase for this purpose.

Cabin Suitcase Package                 £10

Ruby Frances will pack your gown into any cabin size suitcase provided. We will steam, fold and pack your dress securely with tissue paper, ensuring your wedding abroad is as hassle free as possible. This service is complimentary for our brides.

This service can normally be completed within 48 hours.


We understand that buying a hoop which you will only wear once can be very costly, so we are pleased to now be able to offer a hoop hire service.

For a fee of £25 we will hire you a hoop most appropriate for your dress, for the length of time needed, and arrange dry cleaning of the garment on collection and drop off.

We have a number of styles available to hire include princess, a-line and fishtail, in sizes 6 - 20. So whether you have bought your dress with us or purchased elsewhere and still require a hoop, do get in touch for further information.

Please note we have limited hoops so these cannot always be available on your wedding day, therefore we advise you book as far in advance as possible.


We are please to say that we offer an affiliated alterations service. We work closely with a team of local seamstresses who are able to carry out all alteration requirements in store, if you purchase your gown from us. However brides are not obliged to use this service and may arrange their own alterations if they wish.

Prices for this service varies depending on the brides requirements, dress style, and the amount of work required. This will be explained on purchase of the gown.
