Does it have any sterling silver on it, on the beads or the thread itself? If so, you should store it in a non-breathable bag (plastic) until the wedding to prevent the silver from tarnishing. Same goes for any silver accessories. This is what my salon told me about my gown, which is covered in glass beads painted in sterling silver.

ehh, i have the same problem.  it’s currently hanging on some rack with my seamstress lady and has been for the past 3 months because we’re waiting to alter it until closer to my wedding date.  i’ve got all kinds of silver/clear beads and crystals on it.  i’m not stressing about it.  i think it’ll be fine.  if it’s not hanging in my closet, it’ll be hanging in hers.  put it this way, if i didn’t purchase the dress, it’d be hanging somewhere in a store or in china where it was made.  no matter what, i think it will be fine.

just hang it in your sister’s closet.  the only thing i’d want to do is make space for it.  wouldn’t want it be too smushed, y’kno?

When I picked up my dress they said to unzip the bag I had it in, wrap a clean white sheet around it.  Then they said to wrap it back up and leave it.  However, they said to make sure to take it out and unzip it a couple weeks before the wedding to let it air out. 

Since the bag you’ll have it in will most likely be plastic, you don’t want it to have a plasticy smell.
