    I think you can BUY a garmet bag at DB for like $10 or so. I was a little miffed about that too. But in the end it wasnt too big a deal because after I got my dress steamed, I didn’t want to stick it back in a bag to be all wrinkled again so it hung from a hook in the ceiling of my spare room for 5 months uncovered.

    You can buy a garment bag from DB for $10. I did, but it was only a means to transport it the nine hours back to my house. Once I got home, I got a proper (read sturdy) garment bag with a dependable zipper and breathable material from Amazon.com. I also would have expected that it would be included in the cost of the gown, but you know DB–anything to make an extra buck.

    @Mrs.Metalm:  Yes, I got my dress from a closing Priscilla of Boston salon and they gave me the POB branded hanger as well as a HUGE branded, expandable, breathable garment bag (it is sort of pleated on the sides to accomodate for those dresses with a lot of poof! haha)

    I am SO glad I have it because its so nice to conceal my dress and I don’t have to worry about anything knicking the silk or anything!

    My bridesmaids dresses purchased from there only came with plastic coverings but they were not clear, they were white with the priscilla of boston logo all over to also conceal the contents.

    I would definitely say the higher end, the better treatment/care is taken.

    My first dress was a Winnie Couture, and it came in the flimsy dry cleaner thing.  The wedding got canceled, so I never wore the dress.  My cat was fascinated by the plastic bag, and messed up the train on the dress.  Oh, well.

    Same fiance, we decide to try getting married again.  Even if the dress hadn’t been damaged by the cat, I wanted a new one.  Bad juju associated with the first one.  I went to a different bridal shop, and the dress was a Bonny.  It came in the vinyl garment bag.

    @Mrs.Darling:  Which bag did you get? I only have the crappy $10 one, and I’d like a good one.

    Mine came in a cloth white opaque garment bag and that was put inside of a plastic bag, but not like the kind from drycleaners. It was thick, with reinforced seams, and with a zipper. 

    My dress was from Priscilla of Boston, ordered new before the closing was announced.

    I bought my dress at a little bridal store in Huntington Beach (they had amazing prices!) and I got my dress in a pretty decent, sturdy black garmet bag that was breathable and even had a label pocket on the front where they wrote my name.

    I too got mine from David’s Bridal and the same thing. Thin plastic grament bag. Went  on amazon and bought a purple breathle bag, and now the dress lives in that.

    I bought a mesh garment bag from the bridal salon for $10. Well worth it.

    David’s bridal charged me $10 for mine. I wouldn’t be wearing my dress for 2 years, so I went ahead and bought it. It was a sample, so I wasn’t even offered a thin plastic one.
