i got mine in december, about nine months prior to my wedding.  i keep it in a garment bag that’s unzipped several inches from the bottom to let air circulate.  this was the bridal salon’s recommendation.  i take it out every now and then to try on because i just can’t help myself!

My dress is in a heavier garment bag, but I was told to unzip the bag about an inch to let the dress air out. We had mine in our spare closet that no one used. I think if you are storing it in a safe place it doesn’t matter how thick the bag is. I was also told don’t store it around the kitchen or above the kitchen so that smells don’t get in there.
