WHY DO I NEED TO SEAL MY WEDDING DRESS?
To Seal or Not to Seal: The Wedding Dress Preservation Question
After your wedding, you want to have your gown preserved for years of enjoyment. There is a debate amongst brides, preservationists, and others about whether or not to seal the preservation box that your dress is placed in. Here, we will look at the argument for sealing the box up, air-tight. We will also look at what great preservationists should do for your dress, as well as questions you should ask your preservationists.
What Wedding Dress Preservation Does
We do several things. We inspect, clean, and then seal your dress in a sealed box that is solid or has a clear-plastic window. We take great care to thoroughly clean your dress with environmentally safe solvents that are also safe for even the most delicate of fabrics. We try to get rid of even spots that only black lights can see on your dress to prevent future discoloration. Putting your dress in a box packed in tissue paper or on a bust form keeps it from staining or stretching out over the course of time.
Why Seal Your Box?
Sealing your box does make your container air-tight. Those that say that this is a good idea say that is helps to control the entrance of things like spores, mold, mildew, or insects. When you seal a box, you are also protecting your dress from fluctuating moisture levels in your home, any errant chemicals or substances floating in the air, and more. The most typical damage seen to fabulously delicate wedding dresses involves small insects, like silkworms, silverfish, and moths. Placing a seal on your wedding box can keep any and all insects and creatures away from your dress.
