~ Do have your wedding dress cleaned after returning from your honeymoon. Choose a company that specialises in wedding dresses. A recommendation is always best.
~ Follow simple, but sensible rules such as keeping your dress away from light, damp, or heat.
~ Be sure to store your wedding dress in a dry room that has no history of insects.
~ Ensure the wedding dress is surrounded by acid free tissue and lies in PH neutral surroundings such as a wedding dress box.
~ A wedding dress box should eliminate light, should not be plastic so that it can breathe and should protect from dirt, spillage, dust.
~ Choose a sturdy box for your wedding dress that should last a life time.
~ Find a box that you really like as it will be in your house forever and will protect one of the most beautiful items of clothing you’ll ever own.
~ Once your dress has been packed away, check it every 6 to 12 months, just to make sure nothing has happened. You should also re-pack the dress once a year to help prevent any creasing from becoming permanent.
***TOP TIP*** Consider putting dry cleaning and the cost of a wedding dress box onto your overall wedding budget
