Because a wedding gown isn’t inexpensive, you’ll want to take good care of it. While many bridal stores will store your gown until a few days before your wedding, it’s a good idea to know how to care for it so it doesn’t get stained.

Proper storage

The most fundamental technique in wedding dress preservation to keep your garment in good condition is to store it correctly. If you’re just going to keep the dress for a few months, put it on a cushioned hanger in your closet. Make sure the closet isn’t exposed to direct sunlight.

Keep the garment in such a manner that it has a few feet of space on either side of the closet to avoid wrinkling.

A white cotton sheet should be used to cover the garment to keep it dust-free. A plastic sheet should not be used since it will retain water, creating mustiness and mildew. Plastic also tends to release gases, causing the garment to deteriorate.

Be cautious during the wedding
