Wedding Dress Storage - Please Help!

Hi everyone



I bought my dress recently from a shop that's closing down and now have to take it home. My parents' are happy to store it for me but I was wondering how they can best protect it. It is currently in a pretty flimsly plastic cover on a hanger.



Any advice would be massively appreciated as I am so in love with this dress and don't want it to get damaged, faded etc.



I'm getting married in April so it's only for about 5 months.



Please help xx

    Hi!



    I'm getting married in Sept and bought my dress on ebay so I'm having to store it.



    I was told on here not to store it in the dress bag but to get a box and some acid free tissue paper to wrap it in. I got these from Ebay:

    Hope that works. If not they have a shop on there thefavourstore.



    My dress is big and poufy so I went for this one as they say its the biggest box on the market. It's now on top of the wardrobe image
  • Hi,



    I have my wedding dress too and it came in the emptybox box..you can find them online. http://www.emptybox.co.uk/



    They come with acid free tissue paper but the box I have was £68..the seller gave me that though BUT I think I would buy it if she didn't. It is flood proof and will stop anything happening to it. And the ivory one is gorge image

    I've been told by my dress shop that a plain white cotton duvet cover should do the trick, as long as the dress is kept out of direct sun, heat, damp etc. it should be fine.
