A Bride's Wedding Dress is possibly the single most expensive clothing purchase she will ever make, so here are a few tips to look after your dress for years to come! With proper care, a wedding gown can be worn by daughter, grand-daughter, and even great grand-daughter of the original bride!
- Store your gown in a cool, dry, and dark location. The most important thing to do is protect your gown from extreme temperature changes, humidity, and harsh sunlight, our preservation boxes are perfect for wedding gown storage.
- It’s perfectly safe to take out your wedding dress as often as you like, and we’d encourage you to inspect a preserved gown when you get it back. Fabric was made to breathe, so don't store a gown sealed up and blocked off. We suggest you wear gloves when handling a gown – gowns preserved by us come with a pair of white cotton gloves.
- Every year shift the folds in a stored gown, to prevent crease marks from forming.
- Don't store your preserved gown in plastic, or any other covering. Remember, fabric wants to breathe, therefore, the acid free tissue paper provided with our preservation boxes is perfect for this.
