How to pack a wedding dress for shipping?
If you want your gown to arrive safely at its destination, you need to know how to properly pack a wedding dress for shipping. You shouldn’t send your bridal gown in a garment bag.
- Wrap the wedding gown in muslin paper. Lay the paper or muslin on a clean surface and place the wedding dress on top of it.
- Fold the dress if necessary. Every layer should be protected with acid-free paper or muslin, especially when the dress has jewels that can damage the fabric.
- Place the dress in the garment bag.If the dress is folded you could use a waterproof clear plastic bag instead. Pay attention when pulling the zippers, since the fabrics could easily get stuck in it.
- Store the garment bag into the wedding dress shipping box. If there is empty space inside, we recommend filling it with packing peanuts, crumpled paper or other cushioning materials. For extra protection, you could also insert the box into a slightly bigger one.
- Close the box with adhesive tape and seal it.
