I previously posted a link to a New York Times article on wedding dress preservation that I thought was interesting.  Here’s the thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/storing-dress#axzz2XFqL6sHd.  I’m paying for the fancy dress preservation like you described.  It’s pricey, but I figure there’s no point in keeping the dress if it ends up yellow and unwearable years later when someone might actually want to wear it again.  I think you can do it yourself for less, for example if you buy the acid-free tissue and pack the dress up yourself, but it’s just a matter of whether you would actually do it, or would rather pay to have someone do the work for you.  I decided to keep it simple and outsource to a pro!

@aggie2010:  I spent $75 on dry cleaning and the dress looks brand new!  No one is ever going to wear it again so don’t really see the point in having it preserved or spending more money on it than that.
