I used the DB kit for both my dresses (ceremony and reception). I opened the box with the reception dress in it because we ended up doing a portrait session with the photographer after the wedding, and it was honestly in amazing condition, just a bit wrinkled at the bottom from being folded up in the box. My dress got FILTHY at the reception and you could not tell at all. It looked like the day I got it from the salon (minus wrinkles).

Your point is valid about permanent creases, but I guess you could always just take it out of the box as soon as you get it, hang however you like, and then you still only paid $100. I left mine in the box for 2+ months before I took it out and was able to get the wrinkles out with a steamer with no problem.

I’m thinking about going with heritage as well, I just really want to make sure my dress is perfect and I think I’m going to do the museum storage method.  I’m interested to see what people think of them.

I have been wondering about Heritage Gown as well. My wedding was over a year ago so I really need to have my dress cleaned and preserved, but I can’t decide on the best method or where to take the dress. I read about Hertiage and the museum method and am still not sure what the best choice. I want the dress to be well preserved, yet it would be nice if I could take it out and look at it once in a while. Any advice and opinions would be appreciated. I hate that my dress is just hanging in a garmet bag!
