Always clean your gown immediately after wearing to protect from permanently staining. A gown may have invisible white stains; usually from spilled champagne, white wine, or even a clear carbonated beverage. These types of stains may be invisible initially, but will eventually turn brown and become visible as heat and time work to caramelize the sugar in the beverage that was spilled. Also, that sugar attracts silverfish and moths, and that could result in insect damage.

For temporary storage, we recommend a muslin bag. This is particularly important for natural silks. We can order one for you.

Your wedding gown can be preserved in an archival quality box lined with acid-free tissue paper to protect it from the elements and the effects of time. We keep these items in stock.
