There are plenty of women who are curious to know what to do with their wedding dress after their big day. Especially since these dresses can cost a lot of money, it is important to know how to preserve them instead of just putting them in the closet.

Storing a wedding gown can be done in two ways: a self-storage option where you keep it in a temperate, dark, and dry location or you can have a professional prepare the dress preservation to museum quality procedures.
If you have opted to hire a professional preserve your dress, they will go through an extensive process of analyzing the weaves, dyes, fabrics, and ornaments used in your gown. After this, they will clean the dress through a customized cleaning plan that will remove invisible soils and stains thoroughly. Once the gown has been cleaned, it will be wrapped carefully in a material used for museum storage. The next step is that it will be packaged in a Coroplast box so it can be protected against extreme temperatures, moisture, and exposure to direct sunlight. The process for professionally preserving your gown may cost anywhere between $250 and $500.
You can also preserve your own dress by having it dry cleaned and wrapped in a pre-washed unbleached muslin or white sheet. You can then place it inside a sturdy box before you store it in your closet or under your bed. Just remember that your wedding dress is an expensive piece that will remind you of your wedding.
