My dress has some pick ups and I am worried that if it sits in the bag too long it will wrinkle. It looks kind of squished in the bag. I am so worried about something happening to this darn dress! Should I let it out of the bag a few times a week? I was also wondering if it is ok for the dress to be in complete darkness all of the time? I will have had this dress for 4 months by the time we get married if that helps at all.

I’m no expert but I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I think airing it out would be fine, but you certainly wouldn’t need to do it a few times a week, maybe every few weeks? And it’s better for it to be in the dark. Sunlight will degrade most things.

Definitely keep the dress in a bag and away from direct sunlight. I have been told that you can hang your dress in the bathroom while you shower and the steam will naturally help the wrinkles to fall out of your dress. Or, just have it steamed/purchase an inexpensive steamer and stem it yourself.

What a good idea! The steam from the shower won’t hurt it??

Have you had alterations already? I was worried about storing my dress, but at my last fitting, they said they could steam it for me, and asked what day I wanted to pick it up, so I decided 5 days before the wedding seemed like a good option! Less time for me to rewrinkle it:)
