While a wedding dress is one of the most expensive items a bride will invest in her life, it’s important to know the do’s and don’ts of wedding dress storage. I’m excited to share designer Katherine Tash’s expert tips on preserving a wedding dress.
- It’s important to keep your gown in a dark, dry and cool space. Light and moisture will destroy an white silk fabrics over time, causing them to yellow and discolor.
- Have your gown professionally stored by a tailor or dry cleaner. Usually the boutique you bought your gown from will have a trusted dry cleaner to recommend.
- Storing the veil with the wedding gown is fine, but they should not touch. The plastic or wire on the headpiece or veil could damage the gown. This goes for shoes too.
