Tips on how to look after your wedding dress before your wedding day

Updated: Jul 4

When you collect your wedding dress it will be in a breathable white bag so it will be hidden from prying eyes!

But what should you do between collecting your dress and your actual wedding day? Ideally whether at home or maybe you have someone with space; try to hang your dress somewhere high such as a wardrobe door or a curtain rail (but don't leave the dress in sunlight). If it's somewhere safe then open the bag by keeping a finger between the dress and zip so it does not catch, unloop your train loop and leaving the front of dress protected in the bag let down the train of your dress. Leaving your wedding dress with the train down helps drop out any creases.

However if you need to keep the dress in its bag do not worry.
