Store Your Wedding Dress
Hello Brides!

First up, our hearts are with you if you’ve had to make the ultra-tricky decision to postpone your nuptials. There’s no other way to put it than to say that it sucks, and we’re here for you if you ever want to chat.

On the topic of how to store your wedding dress during coronavirus, we enlisted the help of an expert, Natasha from White Meadow Bridal, to see if she had any hot tips on how to keep your dress in pristine condition.

Here’s Natasha’s advice:

  1. It’s best to store your wedding dress in a dry dark place away from sunlight.
  2. Depending on the overall weight and fabrication of your dress, it may have specific instructions, however, it’s advisable to hang it up on the tallest part of your closet. Make sure you use the hanging loops to support the weight of the dress ensuring it doesn’t stretch over time.
  3. Refrain from using plastic bags as they do not allow the fabric to breathe.
  4. Natural fabrics such as silk require air to stay in top shape and you don’t want any moisture getting trapped and creating undesirable odours.
  5. And on the topic of your wedding getup, it’s also important to keep trying on your dress now and again if you’ve got several months or a year to wait because of the coronavirus.
  6. Your body might be changing during this time, and you don’t want to find out last minute your gown no longer fits as well as it did initially.
  7. Be mindful of any chemicals, such as perfume, hairspray, or fake tan getting on your dress as they may permanently stain your garment.
