Are you a bride-to-be who has pushed their wedding date back further than anticipated? If so, you may find that you need to store your wedding dress at home for longer than hoped.
We understand that this can be a stressful thought and we want to give you the best tips, tricks and purchases for you to make sure your wedding dress is kept in pristine condition ready for the big day.
1. The Perfect Storage Space
It is so important that you store your dress is the right environment. You are looking for a dark room to prevent exposure to direct sunlight and a room that is not warm and humid such as a bathroom, laundry room, boiler cupboard etc. Sunlight, heat and moisture can lead to the yellowing of your wedding dress as well as speeding up the process of ageing, something we want to avoid at all costs! We recommend putting your dress somewhere such as a spare bedroom with the curtains drawn, a wardrobe with closed doors or in a wedding dress storage box.
2. Think Inside The Box
The best way for you to store your wedding dress in the lead up to your wedding day is to store it in one of our handmade wedding dress storage boxes. Not only does this allow you to store your wedding dress laying flat, ensuring that there is no stress on the straps, sleeves or seams of your wedding dress, but it also protects your dress from yellowing, insect damage and slows down the ageing process.
Our wedding dress storage boxes are handmade from pH-neutral materials, lined with lace and topped with a beautiful satin bow.
This is the perfect solution for preserving your wedding dress until the big day!
3. Plastic Is A No No
Plastic garment bags and boxes are a straight up no-no from us when it comes to storing your wedding dress. The chemicals found in plastic are known to react with the chemicals in the fibres of your wedding dress, causing yellowing and ageing.
Moisture can also become a problem if not stored in a well ventilated, breathable areag meaning your wedding dress could fall victim to mould before you have even worn it!
We will always recommend our wedding dress storage boxes for long-term storage and our breathable garment bags for short-term storage.
4. Leave It To The Professionals
If you are worried about the responsibility of storing your wedding dress at home, why not hand your dress over to the professionals until it is time for your big day or alterations to begin? By doing this, you can give yourself peace of mind knowing it's fully insured, couriered to and from you, hidden from prying eyes and will be kept in perfect condition.
Take a look at our storage service and relieve yourself of this pressure. Let us help make this process enjoyable and stress-free for you.
We promise that it won’t be in better hands.
