How to store wedding dress before wedding

As a bride-to-be, you want to make sure that everything is perfect for your big day, and that includes your wedding dress. Your dress is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day, and you want to ensure that it looks as beautiful on the day of your wedding as it did when you first purchased it. One of the best ways to ensure that your wedding dress looks perfect on your wedding day is by properly storing it before the wedding. In this post, I’ll discuss the best ways to store your wedding dress before your big day.

First and foremost, it’s important to know what type of fabric your wedding dress is made of. Different fabrics require different types of storage to maintain their quality. Most wedding dresses are made of delicate fabrics such as silk, lace, or tulle, which can easily get damaged if not stored properly. If you're unsure what type of fabric your wedding dress is made of, check the label or ask the designer or bridal shop where you purchased it.

One of the most important things you can do to keep your wedding dress safe is to hang it properly. Choose a cool, dry place to store your dress, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Use a padded hanger that is large enough to support the weight of your dress and won’t damage the fabric. Avoid using wire hangers, as they can leave marks on your dress.

Another option for storing your dress is to lay it flat. This is a good option if you have a heavy dress or if you want to prevent any stress on the straps or shoulders. Make sure to place your dress in a breathable fabric garment bag to protect it from dust and dirt.

If you need to transport your dress, it's important to do so carefully. Use a garment bag and make sure to fold the dress gently and avoid any creases. Once you arrive at your destination, hang the dress as soon as possible to allow any wrinkles to fall out naturally.

It's also a good idea to have your dress professionally cleaned and pressed before storing it. This will remove any dirt, stains, or wrinkles that may have accumulated during the try-on process. It's important to choose a reputable dry cleaner who has experience in cleaning wedding dresses and understands the delicate nature of the fabric.

In summary, storing your wedding dress properly before your big day is essential to ensure that it looks as beautiful as it did when you first purchased it. Always choose a cool, dry place to store your dress, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Use a padded hanger or lay it flat in a breathable garment bag. Have it professionally cleaned and pressed before storing it, and handle it with care when transporting it. By following these tips, you can ensure that your wedding dress is in perfect condition for your special day.
