This may be weird but I went to home depot and bought a hook and put it in the cieling.  My dress hit the floor way too much in the closet and I needed someplace higher, so I just put a hook in a stud in the cieling and had my dress in a breathable garment bag.  After the wedding I took the hook out, patched the hole with some spackle and its as good as new.

I added a shelf to a closet to it could lay flat. I got my dress over a year before my wedding. If I had hung it, who knows what the weight would do to it.

Can you buy and under the bed box and lay it there, protected?

I don’t have quite as long of a timeline as you, but I just kept it at the salon. They had no problem storing it for me.
