I have my wedding dress in a spare closet we have that is large enough to fit it. My FI hasn’t even tried to look because he wants to be surprised. Maybe could you store it at your parent’s house or in-law’s?

Mine’s laying across 3 hangars in one of our closets.  But we have 3 huge storage closets in our little apartment, so it’s not taking up valuable space. :

Is there any way you can take it to your moms?

Yeah, mine is in the closet in our second bedroom/office. It’s hiding in a black garment bag and he knows not to look.

Mine stayed at my parents until the wedding.

I bought a white sheet, washed and dried it, then wrapped it around my dress and hung it in the closet. My FH couldn’t see the dress and the sheet helped protect it later on in transit to the wedding 🙂

I have mine shoved in the far end of our closet in its garmet bag, FI is very adamant about not seeing it but it is taking up so much room I wish I could take it to my moms.

When mine comes in I’ll be keeping it at my parents house (since I live with FI and we don’t have nearly enough room in the closets in our apartment).

I wouldn’t put it in a garment bag if you’re hanging it in the closet. It’ll let most of the deep wrinkles drop out pre-travel. I’d just stick up a note with blu-tack on the door of the closet to remind your FH not to open it. 

My dress is only tea length so I’ve just stored it in the closet in the spare room. FH never goes in there so it’s safe.

My wonderful grandmother is storing it in her closet – to the point that she moved her own clothes!  She did that on her own, I was going to store it in one of the spare bedroom closets.  She said she loves peeking at it every day.

Mine is on my bed at my parents house in it’s little bag.  It pretty much hasn’t moved since we brought it home.  I wouldn’t want to keep it in the bathroom either!

I’m not picking mine up until the 19th but it’s going to have to go to my parents’ house because my FI is desperate to see it and he’s sneaky.

I had mine in the back of my closet for the months before I had the alterations.  After the alterations were done, I had it hung up on my inlaw’s gym equipment so it wouldn’t get wrinkled.
