My dress is swaddled like a baby in a king size sheet and its sitting in an open hopechest. I dropped a few dryer sheets in the chest. I was worried about dust getting on the dress and a zipper catching the lace/beading. The sheet works nice on the floor when your getting into your dress and keeps the bottom of the dress clean for fittings.

mine is currently stored in the box it was shipped in. I felt like it was too heavy to hang and would become distorted if I left it hanging. 

The dress is in a clear plastic bag inside the garment bag (inside the box). I’m not worried about it yellowing since its a champagne/ivory color

Mine stayed in a garment bag and hung in the closet for about 2 months before the wedding.

Mine is in a special waterproof garment bag and folded in half inside a big wedding dress box. I was told not to hang it since it’s so far away, but to take it out a few months before the wedding, have it steamed, then hang it and do alterations.

@Miss_Mango:  Mine is just a plastic hanger, but I hang my dress by the loops sewn inside, there’s not any weight on the straps of the actual dress.

@Miss_Mango:  Yup. Still have the dress. I purchased a nice garment bag, washed my dress in the washing machine (on the delicate cycle), let it air dry, put some pieces of cedar in the bottom of the bag and have stored it in the garment bag in our closet for almost 2 years.  It looks like it did on the day of our wedding.
