    I can’t decide if I’m going to leave it at the shop (they store it for free) or bring it home. I don’t want Fiance peeking, but I want to play dress up haha.

    Mine is in the garment bag that the bridal shop gave me. I have it hanging up in my closet.  Fiance and I don’t live together, so no problems there.

    Mine’s in a garment bag hanging in my parents closet… I wish the bridal shop would have held it for longer… My parents house is a bit overrun with animals at the moment and I’m sort of afraid when I put it on I’ll smell like a giant dog… hopefully this is not the case lol

    Mine is in the preservation box that it came in (the previous bride had it professionally cleaned and preserved right after her wedding). Its not sealed though because I had to try it on :). I’m planning on keeping it there until I get alterations done.

    Mine is in the garment bag and laying flat on a bed in FMIL’s house. The dress is fairly heavy on the bottom so it needed to lay flat to avoid stretching and losing shape. I was going to try and get a dress box with the acid free paper, but it was kind of hard to track the right one down. It’s close enough to the wedding that I’m not too worried. I was told to have it steamed about two weeks before the wedding and to let it hang so that it can fluff out after laying flat for so long. A white sheet also has to go over it to prevent dust from collecting and discoloration from sunlight.

    I plan to keep mine at the shop as long as possible and then store it in its bag at my parents house until the wedding
