My estimated delivery of dress will be early august 2012 but my wedding isn’t until november 2013. any tips/advice for those in the same boat (waiting for about a year to wear dress) in how to take care and keep my dress in best shape? I am worried my ivory dress may turn color or little critters may get in…thanks in advance.

get a high quality dress bag, and keep it in a cool, dry, free of singlight place.

@eagle: Yup! And keep it away from FI!

i was also told to lie it flat if possible to prevent the weight of the dress from possibly loosening some of the stitching in the dress while hanging. my dress lies in a dress bag, out of the sun, on my mom’s unused living room sofa – or if that’s ever used, on a bed.

i was wondering this also! i’m going to store it at my dads house (he mostly stays at this gf’s so no one is at the house, its pretty much empty)

@missashley884: your wedding is in about the same amount of time span mine is. have you already have your dress? I am still waiting for mine to arrive..

Get a good quality (not plastic) garment bag to keep it in. Keep it in a cool dry place away from pets, an unused spare bedroom is perfect. Try not to hang it, especially if it’s heavy- it’ll pull and distort the fabric. Laying it flat-ish on a bed or couch in a cotton garment bag is the best option. Don’t worry about it getting wrinkled laying down- it’ll get steamed before the wedding.
