So I have my dress at home, currently in the dress bag. I am wondering what is the best way to keep it until the wedding, hangning from the dress hangers, in the dress bag or wrapped in acid-free tissue in a tote?
Also anyone steamed their own dress? Mine is lace. Did you use a hand held steamer, or an iron on steam setting?

I have a cloth garment bag that I lined with acid free paper and that is where my dress is currently hanging in my closet. I haven’t tried to steam it myself yet but when we did my sisters it wasn’t all that hard.

@TMB47: my dress will be here soon, I heard putting a white sheet over it helps it breathe keeps it clean.

I will try that! I have no idea why I never thought of using a white sheet. It would probably easier because it seems like I have it out every other day trying it on!

The place I purchased my dress from gave me a garment bag to take it home in when I picked it up.
It hung in the garment bag in my closet until I took it to alterations. After my final fitting (like 3 days before my wedding) the alterations shop steamed it for me and I hung it up NOT in a bag when I got home so that it wouldn’t get all wrinkled up again.
