Oceanside Wins Wedding Dress Care Award for 5th Straight Year

The Knot, a global company with resources for engaged couples, newlyweds and first-time parents everywhere, has awarded Oceanside Cleaners their “Wedding Dress Care Award” for 2022, marking the fifth-straight year for Oceanside to receive the award.

Oceanside has also been inducted into “The Knot Hall of Fame.”

The annual award is for “exquisite care for your wedding gown—before, during and after your big day.” Oceanside gown services include: alterations, pre-wedding pressing and finishing, delivery to the venue, and post wedding cleaning and preservation.

Unlike many other bridal cleaners, Oceanside is the only cleaner in Jacksonville that won’t ship a wedding gown out of town for cleaning.

On its website, The Knot includes a special tribute to Oceanside Cleaners, along with customer comments. Among them:

  • Alterations are performed quickly and beautifully. “Everyone we worked with was extremely kind and professional. Their attention to alteration detail is unmatched.” (Lauren R.)
  • Fast turnaround before the ceremony. “I didn’t think I would have enough time to get my dress cleaned after alterations, but they made it happen!” (Emily W.)
  • After wedding cleaning. “We had a fun night dancing and my dress showed it. Oceanside called with the inspection details and cleaning required a few days after I dropped it off. The whole process was simple and professional.” (Samantha D.)
  • Gown preservation. “The bride had some red wine stains that a guest spilled on the back of her silk dress and Oceanside successfully removed those! The dress looks fabulous and certainly will be able to be worn again one day!!” (Karen F.)
  • Personal service. “Clare and the Oceanside team were extremely helpful and easy to work with! I had my wedding dress cleaned so I could wear it for an anniversary photo and then had it cleaned and preserved after that.” (Emily H.)

The Knot offers wedding planning tools and curated vendor options for invitations, registries, attire, rings, gifts and favors. The Knot Best of Weddings is an annual award that recognizes the top wedding vendors across the country. This prestigious honor represents the highest rated vendors on The Knot who are trusted and dependable as well as deliver quality service.

Oceanside Enters the Hall of Fame!

After a trying 2020, we begin 2021 completely blown away that Oceanside has won The Knot Best of Weddings for the fourth year in a row, earning its spot in The Knot Hall of Fame!

“We are delighted to have won The Knot Best of Weddings and join the Hall of Fame,” said Clare Harris, bridal services manager and certified wedding gown specialist at Oceanside Cleaners. “This recognition is especially meaningful because it’s a direct reflection of our customers’ reviews, so it speaks to their satisfaction with our services.”

Both of these awards recognize local wedding vendors across the country as rated by couples on The Knot. Each year, The Knot analyzes its millions of user reviews to determine the top-rated vendors. Fewer than five percent of vendors on The Knot are inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Harris added, “We take great care to ensure our brides understand each step of the process before and after their big day and we treat each dress as if it were our own. They trust us with one of their most important garments. It’s an honor to receive that trust and a pleasure to see that our attention to detail does not go unnoticed.”

We couldn’t be more thrilled to be recognized for the outstanding care we take of our brides, but know we couldn’t do it without you! Yes you, our real brides, clients, family and friends! Thank you for spreading the word about Oceanside’s bridal services and for taking the time to share your Oceanside experiences through reviews and testimonials. Thank to our brides for trusting us to alter, finish and preserve their most cherished clothing item—we are honored to be part of your big day and after!

The Oceanside Difference: Creating a Culture of CARE

Recently, we’ve had a run of good news at Oceanside Cleaners.

The next week America’s Best Cleaners included us in the 2020 Leadership Forum, where our owner, Mike Harris, served on a panel of five industry leaders to discuss how we’ve managed and adapted in the current business environment. And only a few weeks later, we learned that The Knot was inducting Oceanside Cleaners into its Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
