How to Preserve and Store Your Wedding Gown

First, it is important to note that plastic bags are never a good choice for long-term storage of any garment. Short term is fine, but over time, plastic bags contain chemicals that break down and can stain or scent your garment. Even if you do not detect an odor or stain, the chemicals can still seep into the wedding dress and when you do take it to be dry cleaned, the chemicals for cleaning will combine with the plastic's chemicals and can ruin the dress.


  1. 1
    Fold the wedding gown carefully, without creasing it. Wrap the sleeves under the bodice of the bridal gown, and then fold that back over the skirt, then wrap the skirt up and over the top of the bodice. After this, you can continue to fold the gown until it will neatly fit into the box snugly, but not too tightly. However, remember not to fold creases. The gown should be folded loosely.
  2. 2
    Use acid free tissue paper to place between each of the folds of the dress to help prevent creasing or the fabric touching other parts of the dress. Since many wedding gowns use special stitching or beads, sequins and pearls, you do not want these items to scratch or snag satin or silk fabrics when folded, and the tissue paper between folds will help prevent this.
  3. 3
    Once folded, wrap the wedding gown one more time completely with the unbleached muslin prior to inserting in the box for storage. This is a time-consuming process, so you don't want to package your dress until you are sure you will not need to remove it from the package again for some time. Wrapping and packaging your wedding dress over and over can damage the dress, so wait until you are truly ready to store and preserve your dress before you box it.
  4. 4
    Once boxed, slide your wedding dress packaged box under your bed or in a drawer or on the shelf of a closet. The less light that can reach the dress while it is stored the better.
  5. 5
    While some people choose to store wedding dresses in specialty garment bags and store them hanging or laying flat, boxing your wedding gown is the best choice for long-term storage and preservation. The gown will probably need to be taken to a cleaners and pressed and refresh after storing it this way, but you will be able to avoid the musty, 'stored' feel and scent of a dress stored in garment bags or hanging but not used regularly.
  6. 6
    When you are ready to reuse the gown or remove it from the box packaging, simply reverse the process and be careful not to snag or catch the dress or pull too roughly when taking it out of the box. When you do remove it from the box, beside slight wrinkling of some material, your wedding gown should look every bit as good as it did the day you stored it, no matter how long you have stored it.

7 Ways To Select a Flattering wedding dress Style

Choosing the right style of dress for your wedding isn't easy. Still, understanding the basics can help a lot. Here are some tips using the most popular dress styles.

  1. 1
    Give yourself plenty of time. This is not a choice to leave to the last minute.
  2. 2
    Determine your body shape. Do you have an hourglass figure, with similar bust and hip measurements and a defined waist? Do you have a large bust, but small hips (V-shaped), or a small bust and shoulders, but wide hips (A-shaped)? Are you tall with wide shoulders, but a less defined waist (H-shaped)? Or are you petite with a more boyish frame?
  3. 3
    Decide which feature you want to highlight. If you have a small bust, but wide hips, and you want to "even out" your figure, you need a dress that will make your bust seem bigger, for example, while drawing attention away from your hips.
  4. 4
    Consider the empire dress. This style with a empire waist line at the bottom of the bust and a dropping skirt will help to make the brides look taller. Such a style is great for brides with a small bust, especially if you don't have a waspy waist.
  5. 5
    Check out the mermaid style if you are curvy. It will accentuate your figure nicely. However, perfect wedding dresses of such a style are only recommendable for those that have the hour glass body type. It is usually tightly fitted and might cause you to feel uncomfortable if you have to suck in your stomach throughout the wedding.
  6. 6
    If you are unsure, try an A-line dress. This style is the most popular in wedding and prom dresses because it tends to flatter all body types. This style is fitted down the waist line and then falls free from there. The bodice gives a lift to the bust while shaping the waist. Many brides enjoy the ball gown style skirt, as it creates a princess-like feeling.
  7. 7
    Try on different types of dresses, even if you don't necessarily like their look on the hanger. They do tend to look different on your body, and you might be surprised. If you are planning to order a dress online, it is still a good idea to go to a bridal store and try on the different styles before you order.
