There are so many harmful environmental effects that can happen to your gown over time, such as yellowing, discolouring, creasing or molding so it is vitally important that you take measures to preserve it. So once your dress is home safe from the cleaners it is important to store it in a pH neutral container.

Each box is hand finished with a ribbon or cord and comes with sheets of acid free tissue paper and instructions for how to pack your wedding dress.
