Wedding Dress Preservation- Yes or No?

Sorry for the long recess on my part- I’ve been putting a lot of focus into my photo studio and website, Lola Studios. 

I recently submitted my wedding dress for the wedding preservation that came with a discount when I got my dress.  My wedding was last August and I finally found the time to do it. There was never a question of whether or not I should do it.  But after packing all its fluffiness into a trash bag and shipping it across the country; I started to wonder.  It wasn’t until it came back to me this week that I felt a little remorse over not being able to see it hanging in the closet in all its glory.  However, I have to remind myself and my husband that this is for the best and that it may not stand the test of time without the anti-yellowing protection and air tight seal.


Plus, David’s Bridal did a pretty snazzy job keeping the form to the top.  It’s an impressive presentation.

I’m curious to hear other peoples’ opinions on the topic.  Have you or have you not?  Would you want to?

To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
