Dress storage
I have had my dress for about a month and the wedding is in December. I bought it at David's Bridal and all they said was to hang it in a smoke free area in the garment bag. My mothers house is smoke free so I hung it in her office closet (Dark and low-traffic). Well, I went to pick up my accessories the other day and noticed that the closet has a smell. Not really a bad smell, but a smell non the less. I am very concerned about this and am wondering how I will get the smell out if it attatches itself to my dress. Any ideas?

Did you keep the bag unzipped a little? I agree with binx - get it cleaned and then when you bring it home again, make sure to keep the bag unzipped by about a foot or so.
