Your wedding dress is a treasured item.

Even if you’re not planning on wearing it again or passing it down you still want it to look just as good as on the wedding day.


As soon as you take your dress off, hang it up and put it back in the gown bag.

This way you won’t run into any unnecessary stains or rips that can easily happen when you’re not looking.

Once you are back from your honeymoon, take it to a professional dry cleaners that specializes in wedding gown cleaning.

The cleaner will clean and store your gown in a sealed box or container. There are cleaners out there that let you inspect your dress before they box it up, so you are fully satisfied, and also to make sure it is yours.

Once you get it sealed, take it home and store it on a  high shelf in closet or in the attic.
