So many of us have treasured wedding dresses and outfits in our wardrobes, which we can't quite bear to part with but know that we'll probably never wear again.  

Here at LoveKeepCreate we've got a great way of keeping those most precious memories alive.  We can create bespoke, luxury wedding keepsakes for you from those outfits.  The wedding package includes either a bear or doll, with a large blanket, all made from your wedding dress.  It is also possible to purchase the items on their own, but the full package makes best use of all the material.  We can also incorporate grooms and other outfits into the items, as well as embroidering the items with special names and dates.  

Each wedding outfit is different and we always do our best to incorporate special detailing - we welcome your thoughts if there are any elements that you want using in a particular way.  All our wedding keepsakes come in a beautiful presentation box.  

The blankets are edged and backed in lovely soft cream fleece.  The size varies slightly but they generally come up about 120cm x 100cm.  The bears sit very handsomely at about 35cm and the dolls at about 40cm.  The items can be cared for in the same way that your wedding dress is, so they are not washable unless the dress material was.  We recommend that they are only spot cleaned.  

We fully appreciate how important these items are to you and we use only signed and tracked delivery services (we recommend that you do the same when sending the items to us).

Once we receive the clothing from you it takes about 6-8 weeks for us to get it all made up and returned - though this can be longer depending on the complexity of the project.  

Once you've checked out you will receive a confirmation email containing postage instructions. You can also purchase gift vouchers through this site which can be redeemed against these items, so they make a great and unusual wedding gift too.

Please do have a good look at the photos and if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to email us: info@lovekeepcreate.co.uk or phone: 0333 444 9144.

Please note, the bear and the doll are very much keepsakes and not toys.  They are not CE tested and therefore come with the following Warning: This product is not suitable for persons under the age of 14 years.

Patterns are by Rachel Day.

Teddy & blanket are gorgeous!

Thank you so much for the beautiful teddy & blanket that you made from my wedding dress. I adore them! After 24 years of being stored in the attic, it is great to be able to enjoy my dress again. Their arrival brought back so many memories.

Thank you very much for my beautiful teddy made with my wedding dress and some lace from my late mum's wedding dress. I am delighted with it and just before my 30th anniversary.

Bear & blanket

Thank you so much for my bear and blanket. They are beautiful and I am delighted with them. I had wondered how well the lace from my dress would display on the bear but you have made a beautiful job and it is lovely. Much better than leaving my dress stored away in a box. Now I can see and enjoy my bear and blanket.

We get a lot of questions about the clothing which can be used.  This should answer all your questions!

 

Types of clothing.  We use baby grows as a guide for numbers of items (below) but you can send us pretty much any clothing.  We can work with all kinds of materials - if they are delicate/knitted then sometimes we back them with another fabric for stability.  We struggle to work with very chunky knits and we can’t use plastic rainwear or swimwear.  On the whole we can do most things, however the wider the variety of fabrics the less ‘uniform’ the finished item will look.

Number of items.  As a guide to what to send in we ask the for equivalent number of babygrows.  This assumes babygrows that are approximately 0-6months.  If they are tiny babygrows, vest, tops, trousers etc then they would count as half a babygrow.  Equally, if the items are much bigger babygrows, or dresses with quite a bit of fabric to them etc, then you may be able to send less.  Generally we would say it is better to send slightly too much than too little. 

Notes.  Please do tell us in a note with the clothes which are the favourites, especially if you are sending more than we’ve asked for, so that we can make sure they appear prominently on the finished item.  Please do tell us if you want a bit of everything using.  If you don’t, and we don’t need it all, then we will make a decision about what to use and will send back any uncut items.  Similarly, it is really important to let us know if you are sending in certain items which are particular favourites, or if you want bits of detailing etc using in a particular way.  We will always do our best to adhere to these requests, although it may not always be possible.  

Quality.  Obviously the most worn items of clothing are often the favourites and we love these.  However, please be aware that the more stretched/worn/washed something is, the more delicate the finished item will be as stitches are more likely to pull into little tiny holes on seams.  Also, more won/stretchy fabric tends to look more stretched – obviously!  This doesn’t mean it is over-stuffed, it is just a consequence of the fabric.  We think it still looks lovely, but you just need to be aware that it may look more different to the pictures on the product pages.  There are lots of customer photos on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lovekeepcreate) so please do look there for more real life examples.  We strongly encourage customers to look at the customer photos  so that you can get a good idea of the variety in appearance of the products. 

Offcuts.  We do keep remnants of fabric for a short amount of time after dispatching your order, so if you aren’t happy, or want something back, you need to tell us quickly.  Once your order is dispatched then we usually recycle remaining fabric within a few weeks.

How do I send them in?  Once you have placed your order you will receive a confirmation email with postage instructions.  Please follow the instructions!  It is really important to make sure the order reference and a senders address is on the outside of the parcel.
