I stored mine for a little over a year just as you are describing, the one difference was we really didn’t have the room so it got smooshed into our teeny closet. It did wrinkle quite a bit but they came out with a steaming. As far as the dress loosing shape mine didn’t. It was strapless and I hung it by the little fake strap things that attached inside the dress….the only REAL issue was that I always wanted to put it on, lol.

littleanchor:  David’s Bridal?  Mine arrived in 6 weeks.  I had it in my closet from October until March when I took it in for alterations before my May wedding.

I just hung it in the back of the closet, I paid the $10 for the nicer garment bag.

It looked perfect day of, they did a great job steaming out all the wrinkles (and mine was chiffon – it wrinkled A LOT)

cora_123:  +1, it was SO tempting to put it on.  I definitely tried it on a few times when I knew there was no chance DH would come home early.

Good question! My dress is arriving today! Yeah (its killing me…its being shipped from a preowned bride so my stomach is in knots waiting for the dang UPS…..). <br /><br />I plan to store it on its hanger in a bag. No other way I guess! The only difference for me is I am pretty sure its been stored like that for over a year at the other brides house already.

littleanchor:  don’t worry about it at all.  Steamers can work magic!  It’ll look perfect.
