    Awh, Isabel, thank you so much. I am so pleased it all worked out okay in the end! Now, don’t forget to send me some photos of your ‘love story’ wedding, I still get a bit teary when I think about it. Wishing you lots of love, SA x

    I recently purchased the Grande Travel box for my wedding abroad last month and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I flew with Easyjet to Portugal and my box fitted their maximum cabin baggage allowance which was perfect, my dress and veil were packed so well in the box with room to spare and they flew safely with me on the flight! I really would recomend any bride travelling abroad for their wedding to purchase a travel box from Dress in a box as their service was fantastic.
    Thank you Sallyann for all your help and for my beautfiul box, I now have a beautfiul box to safely store my dress in!

    So glad I bought this beautiful product, I have a huge hevaily embroidered dress that I need to take to Prague for my wedding. After shopping around and looking at suitcases found this site. Customer service was fantastic and the delivery was quick and the box is gorgeous very well packaged, and they supplied tissue paper so thoughtful.
    thank you

  13. Sallyann Lewis

    Natalie, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. Obviously I am sorry you had such a bad experience in the beginning with your bridal shop, as I said to you at the time, I have never heard of a shop not being able to pack a dress into a box! Of course I am pleased I was able to help you with a box and that you have managed to pack it yourself. I do hope your wedding day is all you ever dreamed of, and even though I have a photo of you in your dress, one of you and your husband on your wedding day would be lovely to see. Wishing you all the very best, regards Sallyann xx

    I had ordered the grande box away back in March after the bridal shop had “issues” trying to pack my dress into a standard cabin size travel box. Upset as I was assured they could fit the bigget of dresses into the smallest of boxes I was struggling as to what to do about getring my dress to travel with me oversees.

    Then looking up this website was my life line. Sallyann has been so helpful with all my questions. Ordered the grande box. It was cheaper and better quality than the one the bridal shop supplied (after they couldnt pack my dress and refused to refund me the travel box that was no use, the bridal shop had the cheek to give me advice on how to pack my dress!!). The reason I have posted today as i have literally just packed my wedding gown today and with the instructions on the video supplied on this website took no longer than 20 minutes to do.

    One less thing to worry about and can now enjoy the wedding. Fantastic company and helping hand when needed.

    I would like to start with a huuuge thank you! I was having a meltdown worrying that I couldn’t get a box in time to fly to my wedding as the bank holiday was approaching but Dress in a Box got my box delivered to me two days after ordering which was such a weight off my mind. The box itself is so lovely and I’m really pleased with it. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to Sallyann who was so friendly and helpful on the phone and who kept me informed via text on the progress of my order which is such a lovely thing for a company to do for anyone. I would 100% recommend Dress in a Box as I cannot fault my experience with them, ordering was incredibly easy and the customer service second to none! Thank you so much!!

    I ordered my box last minute and sallyann was great. She contacted me to work with me for the best possible delivery to ensure that someone was around to take receipt of the box. The box was received in one week and is absolutely perfect. The hand printing is beautiful. I would highly recommend dressinabox to anyone looking for a beautiful way to transport and store their previous clothing items and anyone who is looking for a personal and great customer service. Thank you sallyann.

    I’ve just received my wedding dress travel box and I am delighted with it! It’s just perfect! Ordering a box is really easy and there are so many styles to choose from. Sallyann was lovely and communicated with me as soon as I placed my order and updated me on delivery times which was great as you can make sure you’re at home to take the delivery. I was very pleased with how quick it came too. I would recommend ‘Dress in a Box’ to anyone, such a great service. A big thank you to Sallyann and the team. I can’t wait to take it to Sorrento, Italy next year. Lisa

    Thank you Liz, I am so pleased everything went well and thank you for taking the trouble to leave such a glowing review after your return from Italy.

    I would like to say a very big thank you to Sallyann and the team at Dress in a box.
    From the very first phone call, Sallyann was so helpful and thoughtful.
    My daughter was getting married in Sorrento and her wedding dress was princess in style. Having already decided that we would not be putting the dress in the plane hold, we were concerned about making sure it would be accepted as hand luggage and it fitting in a box.
    After much research I found Dress in a box did the biggest box to fit a BA flight.
    Sallyann reassured me that the dress would fit and as long as the lid was fully down on the box, we were early to check in queue, that the grande Travel box would be accepted as hand luggage. Im happy to say that we had no problems at check there and back.
    Ordering the box was easy and it arrived in perfect condition.
    I’m not going to say it’s easy packing a big dress by yourself into a box but by following the video supplied by Dress in a box, I managed it and the dress was relatively crease free once we arrived at our hotel. A few days hanging up and all was fine.
    I wouldn’t hesitate to reccomend Dress in a box. It really took the stress out of a very stressful time.
    Thank you so much.

    Hanna, thank you so much for taking the trouble to review your box, I have already used a ‘snippet’ this afternoon to show another bride that her dress WILL fit into the box, it really does help. You sounded so panicky when you first rang, and then we got cut off!!! but we got there in the end didn’t we? And now you are back, “pretty please” we would really love to see a photo! With many good wishes for your future happiness, regards David and Sallyann

    I ordered this box for my daughters wedding dress. Even before placing my order, Sallyann helped me with my selection giving me advice about sizing for different airlines etc. Sallyann is so efficient and nothing is too much trouble for her. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending ‘dress in a box’ to anyone in the future.
    The box itself is beautiful and so well made, my daughter can’t wait to use it.
    Thanks again for all your help it was much appreciated.

    I contacted the company only days before flying back to Finland to get my dress. Sallyann was absolutely amazing and got the box to me the very next day and she followed up all the way through. My dress is on the bigger side, quite a princessy big A-line dress. I was very nervous on how the dress would actually fit even to the grande box but with the YouTube instruction video it was easy and I felt at ease. The box was spot on in terms of size and I had no problems bringing the dress back as hand luggage whereas I’m sure the airline would not have let me take a garment bag in. Apart from some creases on the tulle the dress was in immaculate condition when I took it out. I am so happy I got the box which is also beautiful and will work well for storing the dress after the wedding. Thank you so much to Sallyann and the company!!!

    P.S. I highly recommend getting the luggage strap to put around the box which not only makes sure the box stays shut but also helps with carrying.

    Fantastic service and a beautiful box to safely encase my wedding dress on route to Cyprus. We’re flying with BA and it’s such a relief to know that the box fits the hand luggage requirements so that my wedding dress doesn’t have to leave my sight! The box is gorgeous and sturdy and will be used to store my wedding memories in after the flights. Thank-you Sallyann for all of your help and communication with me!

    What great service, Sallyann kindly kept in touch with me once I’d ordered my box and I was so grateful for the help. It took the stress away from an area which I certainly don’t need to be stressing about! Plus the box is extremely sturdy and very well made; all round i’m delighted. I ordered the box which is suitable for Easyjet so fingers crossed everything is fine in a few weeks when we fly. Just a note for future brides; I have paid for speedy boarding so we get on the flight in good time to ensure I don’t get asked to put my dress in the hold when the overhead storage is full. Thank you again!

I would like to say a huge thank you to Sallyann for her email and text updates I’ve never come across a company so willing to help and please it was so refreshing and I’m extremely grateful.

    What an absolutely amazing company. Nothing I write could fully explain how brilliant they are. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I (unintentionally) gave them quite a short deadline, and they beat it by a week. Special thanks to Sallyann who kept me updated by text and email, and even helped me pick my box design, by asking my colour scheme and favourite colours, and then gave some brilliant suggestions. Honestly, I cannot recommend this company enough and only wish every company had the same customer service ethos as this one! Also, take advantage of the full list of hand luggage measurements and the boxes which fit the maximums, my wedding dress shop said they sold the largest box that is accepted by my airline, and this wasn’t correct at all. Just brilliant, thank you.
