Gown Preservation Instructions

After your wedding day, you get your dress cleaned at a trusted bridal cleaning company, you are ready to store your dress. Please follow the following tips in preserving your wedding dress. 

  • Do not store in basement, attic, or back of closet. Fine fabrics need cool, dark storage. Shelf in closet is best. 
  • Do not seal garment, your dress needs air to breathe. You should take your dress out of its container often to let it breathe(at least once a year)
  • Do not use a box with a see through window(dry cleaners pass these out) Your dress should not be exposed to the light. 
  • Never wrap in plastic, only use Acid Free Tissue in a concealed acid free box, on your shelf, and let it out at least once a year. 
  • Place tissue for every fold of dress, in box. 
  • Padded hangar in safe place in your closet with a gown dust cover that has been previously washed, is also acceptable.
