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.
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.
