    • Wedding: April 2014

    Mine’s in the cloth bag I got when I bought the dress. I got it in February (it came in in two weeks) and I’m getting married next April. I have it in the bag, in a closet, in my guest bedroom with a closed door so that my cloth eating cat cannot get to it. I also have some cedar hanging nearby and some lavender in the bottom of the bag since they’re both supposed to repel moths, just in case.

    I’ve had mine since January and it’s in the original bag, hanging in my old closet at my parent’s house.  I’m not having it steamed until like 2 days before the wedding because wrinkles easy.  I was told to keep it where you normally keep clothes (i.e. the closet), not in an attic or basement.
