Real Bride Reviews

Thank you to our brides who shared their experience on The Knot!


I used Oceanside for my wedding dress alterations, cleaning, and preservation. Tooran altered my dress and it fit like a glove! I wore a strapless gown and she made sure it wouldn’t “fall down” and on the day of, it stayed perfectly! I’m so pleased with all of the services I received from Oceanside. Clare, Tooran, and the whole Oceanside staff are such a pleasure to work with and I’m so happy I trusted them with my dress!

For my second wedding ceremony at our church, I wanted to wear my mom’s wedding dress from 1975. The dress had not been preserved and the lace, which covered about half of the dress, had completely yellowed. I wanted to at least try to get it whitened. I called Clare at Oceanside Cleaners after I saw online that they restore wedding dresses. I had been nervous about how it would be cleaned and wanted to make sure the cleaning/whitening process would be gentle. Clare was incredibly thorough in answering all of my questions and put my mind at ease. Also, the price to restore the dress was less than I expected. I needed a few alterations done, and Tooran, the seamstress, could not have been more helpful. During the process of whitening the dress, Clare kept me updated and sent me pictures of the dress. I am truly in awe of the finished product, the lace was completely whitened and the dress looks exactly like it did in 1975, it is incredible. Oceanside Cleaners is a family-run business and I am so grateful that I was really able to trust them with my family heirloom.

Clare and Oceanside Cleaners saved my wedding day!!! When I picked my wedding dress up from getting alterations, there were black lines all across the back of it! It was less than a month until my wedding, and I was devastated! I did not trust the alterations shop to clean the dress for me, so I called the shop where I bought the dress to get their recommendation. They said that they only trusted Oceanside Cleaners with their dresses, and put me in contact with Clare. Clare was extremely responsive and friendly, and immediately calmed my fears about my dress being ruined! I sent photos over, and she was confident that they could get it cleaned. We set a time for me to come in, and Clare and the whole team were great! They were able to spot clean my dress while I waited (I drove up all the way from Orlando!), and it looked perfect when they were finished! I now need to get it cleaned and preserved, and will definitely be taking it back to Oceanside Cleaners!

I am so glad I found Oceanside Cleaners for my wedding dress alterations! Tooran was fantastic and fit me in on a tight timeline to get two fittings in before my wedding. She went above and beyond, my dress was flawless!

I’m blown away by Oceanside Cleaners. They steamed my best friend’s wedding dress and the groom’s tux so the couple could wear them back-to-back for wedding weekend festivities. Oceanside made the wedding smooth and worry-free. They bent over backward for us including running their plant on an off day, arranging special pick up for the bride, and going above and beyond on a last-minute request from the groom. In addition to their top-notch level of customer service, the dress and tux looked fabulous! The team was flexible, kind, and followed through. Knowing this was one less logistic we had to worry about on the wedding weekend was such a relief. Thank you, Clare and the Oceanside team!

Too ran did an AMAZING job on my alterations. My dress fits like a glove. She even made some adjustments to my straps and got creative with making my visions become a reality. HIGHLY recommend Tooran and Oceanside Cleaners for your wedding alterations.

Oceanside Cleaners came to my rescue! I was late setting up my alterations due to an emergency health issue in the middle of our wedding planning. But they fit me in and took great care of my dress to make sure it was done in time. My dress fit like a dream on the day of my wedding, and the bustle was incredible! It didn’t feel like I had extra weight at the back the whole night.

Clare was absolutely amazing! I had a need for a quick turnaround on pressing – my dress wasn’t ready until a few days before my wedding from the seamstress – and Clare and her team went above and beyond to ease my concerns and get the dress pressed on time. She was very helpful explaining how to take care of the gown in transit and made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. The dress came out stunning!
