I am picking my dress up next week as the shop is closing and they have no where to keep it, I will be getting a breathable bag to keep it in but I don’t get married until August- where do I keep it? I live with my Fiance, should I just hide it deep in our wardrobe? My mum lives to far away to keep it at hers. What are you guys doing? Thank you

I live with Fiance and have mine in our front closet in a breathable bag. He has no interest in looking and that way I get to take it out and play with it whenever I need to.
I’ve heard keeping it somewhere dark and laying flat (if it’s hanging for a long time) is best.

It’s lying in the top of the closet at my mom’s house.

I plan to keep mine at my mom and dad’s because they live 5 minutes away. But yep, keep it it a breathable bag.

Mine’s still at the bridal shop–they keep them in a fireproof safe and they’re insured for loss or damage.

I kept mine in the closet in our spare room. I just told Fiance to stay out of that closet, lol.

Ooh good to know! Right now mine is literally balled up in a plastic grocery sack from when I took it on a road trip to show my Future Mother-In-Law a few weeks ago. Oops. But, it’s a pretty simple dress that won’t be ruined by such naughty treatment…

Breathable bag at my mom’s house. I’m pretty sure Fiance would look at it if it were here with us haha.

I kept mine at the bridal salon until a week before the wedding, then I took it to my parents house. If you have any relative at all living near you I would ask them if you can store it at their house. My friend is storing her dress at her fiance’s parents house, maybe that is an option you can do.
One thing I do recommend doing is taking your dress to the cleaners a week before the wedding and having it professionally press & steamed. They may tell you to keep it out of the bag, with your train out so it may be easier to have it stored at someone’s house.

I didn’t have anywhere nearby I could store it. What I did have was a very large, person-sized cardboard box. So currently, my dress is living in that. And it will until the day before the wedding.

I kept it in a garment bag, hanging up in our house, when it wasn’t at the shop for alterations.

I think mine will stay at the bridal shop but if not I will hang it in my old room closet at my parents house 🙂

Mine is at the shop. I will more than likely keep her there until a week or so before the wedding and then I will store her in a breathable bag somewhere safe.
