I have my Lazaro gown cleaned and archived by a museum textile conservation company. It has pleated silk organza and alencon lace – no beading. Storing was a challenge because any weight placed on the pleats will cause them to flatten. Not inexpensive but worth the price given the cost of the gown and the quality / guarantee of their work Maybe contact them for advice on storage. Hanging is NOT an option, it may need to be folded between thick layers of archival paper/tissue like mine was:

I just wanted to say your gown is breathtakingly beautiful! I’d get it preserved museum-like and hang it on my wall 🙂

Take it to a dry cleaners and they will preserve it for you! And will put it in a box for you!
Hope this helped!

@southernbride14: I am surprised that they cannot fit your train into a box. My dress had a train of between 10-11 feet with heavy beading on the bodice and it fit into a larger dress box after being cleaned. They used vaccuum seal to get it in but it worked.
@PrincessBride27: I love this but I would fear coming off as a bit self indulgent to have it displayed in my home. Maybe in a boudouir or very large (and expensive) closet.
