Hi! I don’t know about organza specifically, if I did the math and it looks like total you will be storing your dress for something like 10 months, including this past month right??? I was thinking of getting my dress early too and this is what I found on storing your wedding dress for over 6 months…

 

Most people say that if you have a dress for under 6 months it can do just fine hung on a padded hanger– the padded part seems to be very important. Also, they say don’t keep it in a vinyl or plastic bag as this can cause moisture which can damage your dress.

If you need to store your dress for longer than 6 month I found that you should store your dress flat in a box somewhere in your house in an area that is lived in to keep your eye on humidity and temperature. They say it is very important that the dress boxed up should be in an area in the house that you live in rather than some place like an attic or basement  because otherwise the humidity or temperature in these other areas can damage the dress. They also say you should check on it every so often to make sure it is doing well. I thought that this was crazy when I first heard it but the more I looked around on the internet the more I saw that several people said the same thing.

Check out these links- Martha Stewart has less info but this second link has a ton of info!!! 🙂

as for the issue of organza… I would go see a dry cleaner (someone who knows about wedding dresses in particular and someone you trust) and ask them what they think about the issue of permanent wrinkling…

good luck!

Happy to help!!! As I mentioned before, I was thinking of getting my dress early too and had spent hours on the internet trying to figure this stuff out. At first I thought it was super silly what they said about putting the dress in a box and wrapping it with sheets but the more I looked and asked around, the more I found that is what people do say. 🙂 Good luck with it! And I hope you don’t get any permanent wrinkles with the organza!!!
