Wedding Preparation: After The Big Day

July 11, 2013

Once a bride and groom have spent months planning their wedding, walked down the aisle, and said their “I dos,” they can relax, right?

Not so fast!

There’s still an important step left to help preserve the oh-so-special day: packaging the bride’s wedding gown.

After all, what woman wants to pull out her wedding gown to show her daughter years down the line, only to find a destroyed gown? THE HORROR!

Wedding Dress

To properly package a wedding dress, a bride must have it cleaned, and then carefully fold it and stow it away in a box, surrounded by layers of acid-free tissue paper. It should be stored in a dark place to keep light from damaging the fabric.

And for a more *extreme* version of wedding dress packaging, check out this Christian Lacroix gown — which we featured on our Pinterest page — pictured here to the right. This breathtaking gown travels upright in a cloth case, with each intricate layer of the elaborate gown resting on a bed of tissue. Pretty amazing, isn’t it!?!
