Bridal Gown Cleaning and Storage

It is important to preserve your gown. Follow these tips.

❑ Hang your wedding gown by the loops inside the gown that are connected to the sturdy side seams, and never by the fragile shoulder seams, which can stretch or sag.

❑ Avoid storing your gown in plastic bags or vacuum-sealed, plastic-wrapped containers because plastic emits fumes that can yellow your gown and trap moisture that causes mildew.

❑ Ask to inspect your wedding gown personally before it is put into the container, which should be a completely acid-free museum quality archival wedding chest lined with fabric or acid-free tissue.

❑ Avoid storing your bridal gown in the attic or basement where there are extreme changes in temperature or humidity.
