How is it packaged?
Their trademarked MuseumCare? wedding chest is completely acid-free, not just pH neutral. All acid is removed during the manufacturing process so it new homecoming dresses cannot re-acidify because it never contained any acid. However, boxes that are only pH-neutral can re-acidify because the neutralizer is water-soluble and will dissolve over time. Never use ordinary boxes and tissue because they are heavily acidic and cause yellowing. The acidic content of ordinary boxes and tissue can actually “scorch” gowns and leave dark brown streaks on your gown.
What is the guarantee?
There is a 100% international guarantee against caramelized sugar stains or yellowing of your gown that is honored by all members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists.

With sublime details and hand-painted roses on the tulle, Erin’s wedding gown by Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood, was a true work of art. And not to mention her lovely unplanned mismatching bridesmaids! They all showed up wearing pink without knowing.
With that in mind, make sure you do try the dress wedding flowers on before you purchase it! Just like buying a second-hand car, you want to test-drive your dress before purchasing it. Try it on, have a quick walk in it (with your wedding shoes if you can!) and make sure you’re happy with the fit, or where you’ll need to have it altered before you purchase.
Once the dress is on you might find that a few areas are looser or tighter than others. A great way to check about different areas of your dress is to see whether the previous bride had any issues when she wore it. Things like what style of bra to wear or whether you need to wear a particular shade of underwear will be particularly useful to know from someone who has worn the dress before!
We know that wedding dress shopping is a big deal, and it’s the same whether you’re purchasing something new or second-hand. Regardless, make sure that you’re buying the dress that you want because you WANT it, not just because you think it’s a bargain. The last thing you want is to buy a dress because you think you’re getting a good deal and then fall out of love with it because you were never sold on it in the first place.
