Safely Putting Your Wedding Dress in Self Storage

Self storage North YorkOur self-storage clients in Toronto, Brampton, Etobicoke and North York can vouch for the fact that a wedding dress is a real space-killer. They can eat up a ton of space in your closet, attic or basement.

You might be wondering if it’s safe to store your wedding dress in self-storage. Absolutely!

We recently found a very helpful article, in which Vogue magazine asked bridal specialist Lisa Gowing how to safely keep your wedding dress—the same dress that it took forever to pick out.

RULE 1: DRY CLEAN WITHOUT DELAY

“Ideally, you want someone to drop off your gown while you’re on your honeymoon, or the cleaners we prefer can come and pick up your gown before you go.”

RULE 2: WRAP IT UP

“The only way to store your gown long-term is to box it with acid-free tissue paper. Both of my dry cleaner recommendations box their gowns. Ideally, you want to keep the gown away from anything that could stain it over time so acid-free tissue paper is fantastic and by boxing the gown it seals in the air.”

RULE 3: STORE SENSIBLY

“Store items somewhere that isn’t damp or humid, and out of the sunlight. If we hang a garment under the light in the studio for long enough it will turn yellow as it’s a natural fibre.”

If you have any questions about any of your self-storage needs, please contact us any time.
