Tips for Storing your Wedding Dress

1) Clean it!  Have the dress dry cleaned, by a dry cleaner who specialises in cleaning wedding dresses. Cleaning removes stains that may not be immediately apparent and may up show later.  The solvents used in dry cleaning can also deter insects.

2) Be Sensible!  Follow some simple rules: Store it in a dry, dark & warm (not hot) place.

3) Box it!  But don’t just box it in any box, use a purpose built wedding dress box.  The box needs to be sturdy enough to eliminate light, protect your dress from dust and accidents.  It also needs to be breathable i.e. not plastic, and be pH neutral i.e. contain no acid or alkali. A box made of heavy board with a fitted lid will protect from insects providing there are no gaps between lid and base.  Our wedding boxes fulfill all of these criteria.

4) Beware of Acid!  Always store your wedding dress in a pH neutral medium (acid free), with acid free tissue paper. Be aware, that if you store your dress in acid free tissue paper, but place that in a non acid free box, the tissue paper will soak up the acid and you would need to change the tissue paper regularly in order to avoid problems.

5) Check It!  Once packed away, check on your dress every year or so.  If you unpack it and repack it, this will ensure that creases don’t become permanent.  We include a set of white cotton gloves in your box to allow you to do this without transferring the oils on your fingers to the dress.

6) Store It Properly!  If you keep your Wedding Dress Box in a warm dry spare room that has no history of insects (i.e. not your attic), then insect damage, damp etc will be minimised and your dress can survive for many years to come.
