Dress preservation

Hi Ladies,


I have a question.


 


I bought my wedding dress about three months ago, when my fiancee and i though we were going to have our wedding in Feb. We have since decided to postpone the wedding (for financial reasons) for another year or two.


 


Should I get my gown preserved? It is Ivory satin and I am worried that it might yellow or something until that time. It is currently in a garment back at my parent's house...


 


what should I do?


 


Thanks!

Honestly, I would not waste the money on the gown preservation because I have seen first hand that it does not work. The best thing that you can do is go to Wal-Mart and buy a plastic bin with a lid. Make sure it is not clear, but a solid color-this will help keep the light out. Light and smoke can turn dresses and beading a yellow color, so you want to avoid both. Additionally, keep the bin in an average temperature and do not expose it to extreme heat or cold. This is what we recommend at my work and we have had a few canceled weddings over the years and this has seemed to work really well for people.

I agree with ANMOODY!  Also those storage bags where you suck the air out with your vacuum work really great - and they make dress-sized bags!  I think one of those combined with a solid storage bin would be your best bet and cost you less than $20
