Museum Quality Wedding Gown Storage

THE MODERN METHOD
FOR GOWN CARE

Wedding Gowns stored in old-school preservation chests at home are susceptible to the following damaging elements:

  • Water damage from moisture, flooding
  • Permanent damage from creasing
  • Yellowing from heat, plastic fumes, an inability for the fabric to "breathe"
  • Insects or pests

With the Archival Museum Method used at Save the Dress, dresses and accessories are stored in muslin garment bags on specialty hangers and prepped using highest-quality acid-free packaging materials. Our team will also add removable straps to properly reinforce the dress for hanging storage.

SAVE YOUR DRESS

Many museum conservators discourage vacuum-sealing wedding gowns in acid-free boxes, since sealing promotes mold and mildew, gives the fabric permanent creases and eliminates your ability to regularly inspect your gown.
