Real Bride Reviews

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


This place was amazing! I got my wedding dress alterations done here and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. There was a lot of detailed work that had to be done to the dress because of the length and all the lace. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to get their dress altered.

I was fortunate enough to find a dress that I loved off the rack while my two out of town grandmas were here for Christmas of 2021. With my wedding date not being until 12/18/2022, I knew I would have to get some alterations done due to my recent weight gain. I had plenty of time to search for the best bridal alterations shop and am SO glad I chose Tooran at Oceanside Cleaners. My dress bodice was complete mesh with appliques that matched the skirt and train. We originally thought that we had a big problem on our hands because the dress needed to be let out but not hemmed, so there was no extra fabric for her to work with. She found just enough material in the back that she was able to use and you could not tell she had done any work to it. My bustle lasted all night long and I absolutely loved my dress. I felt so confident that it looked the best it could have because of Tooran. We just got back from our honeymoon, so my next step is getting it cleaned and preserved, which I am thankful will be done somewhere that I know I can trust.

Made all my wedding dress dreams come true and literally saved the day when my buttons popped up 4 days before the wedding. Awesome customer service, attention to detail and made my requests come true. Specially sowed in my grandmothers shirt into the chest of my dress to honor her memory. She also made sure no one could tell i was four months pregnant and ensured the dress fit me well. Would recommend time and time again to literally anyone getting bridal alterations. Thank you!

Tooran did an amazing job with my dress. The hem and bustle were perfect. When a hurricane came through, Claire made sure to get me rescheduled ASAP. Communicating with their team is beyond easy and everyone is so nice!

Tooran did absolutely amazing with my dress! She took care and made sure everything was perfect! I was nervous as my dress was gifted to me and is an expensive designer gown! But everything was perfect!

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!
