My Dress Is Here!!

So I am super excited that my dress is here. I made an appointment to try it on/pick it up on Dec. 23rd. I don't have to worry about the fit because I tried on a size 4 at the store and it fit perfectly. The dress I tried on was beige so I am so ready to see it in white. Finding that dress and seeing my mom tear up was when it hit me that I was getting married. I can not wait until July 9th it can not come fast enough.

The only concern I have is the length of time I have to keep my dress. It is about 6 1/2 months away. Should I hang it up in the closet or lay it flat somewhere? Any tips on how to keep my dress so fresh and so clean (lol).

    congrats! I picked up my dress this past Sunday and I don't get married til September so I can feel you on wanting the wedding day to get here.  You WILL experience this time around, only stronger because this is actual your dress...ALL YOURS!!! Mine came from Davids Bridal and I know I want a bustle altered to my dress and the consultant told me when I'm ready for those alterations; they will clean it and press it over again after they alter it free of charge. So check with where you purchase, they may be able to tell you best ways to perserve it!
    Congrats again!
