I bought a breathable gown bag off of Amazon and use that instead of the vinyl one from the bridal salon.  After the wedding I’ll probably have it pro-cleaned and wrapped in acid-free tissue paper.

Yikes…mine is still hanging in our closet. I’ll probably take it to the bridal salon where I purchased it and have them clean and box it.

I’m thinking of using Savvi (tux rental place).  I think it’s like $200ish, kinda expensive.  They offer gown preservation and put it in a big airtight box.  I need to find a good, safe way to save mine.  My mother wore her mom’s dress, and I wanted to wear it, but it wasn’t preserved (just in an old box). I swear it crunches like potato chips if you touch it now (60 years later).  I was so sad, so I’m determined not to let that happen to mine.  I’d like to follow this thread and hear other suggestions.

I bought the dress preservation box at David’s Bridal and ship mine out, had it cleaned, boxed, and sealed.  It turned out so amazing I love it.  The kit was only $99 when I bought my dress.  It was quick and painless.  All postage and everything was already in the kit.
