Brides need to consider storage options for their wedding dresses

Most women dream about their wedding day from the time they are young girls, fantasizing about the location, the decor and most importantly the wedding dress. When the time comes for the big event, many brides see some of their visions come to life, however after the event is over, it's back to reality, and the question of storage comes into mind.

Although some ladies might display their wedding gown proudly in their home, most opt to store it away for a rainy day. However how they store it is important, the Minnesota Historical Society reports.

According to the organization, in order to preserve the gown, certain steps need to be taken. First, it's advisable for women to have the dress cleaned after they wear it to get out any stains or other imperfections. Once the gown has been cleaned, ladies have a few options for storing it. Some might want to keep it on a padded hanger in the closet, however the source reports that if the dress is heavy or full, hanging it could cause damage. Certain women will store their dresses in cedar trunks, however the wood is very acidic and might deteriorate the fabric over time. The most suitable solution for long-term storage is boxing the dress in "unbuffered acid-free materials," according to the society.

Putting the dress in a box of this fashion will ensure no dust, dirt, mold or water gets in. If the box is too large to keep in the home, brides can look for safe and secure self storage facilities nearby to house their special gowns and maybe even some of their husband's stuff that got moved in after the wedding.
