Travel Wedding dress garment bag

wedding dress garment bags

When it comes to wedding dress garment bags... this is a subject most brides don't really think about much.

Most of the time, the bridal shop you purchase your gown from will give you a wedding gown garment bag.

You assume that what they give you is the best choice for your gown, but is it really?

Well lets take a look at the usual choices you will be given:

  1. White or Clear Vinyl Bridal Gown Bag
  2. Breathable Wedding Gown Bag
  3. Clear plastic formal garment bag

"Notice the picture to the right is of two bridal gown bags. Both are 72" long vinyl garment bags made for wedding gowns. One has a 10" gusset, which is the standard garment bag which is what most bridal shops give out. The other is a 20" wide bridal bag for very full bridal gowns, which are not always easy to find."

Vs. Vinyl Bridal Gown Bag

The most popular wedding gown bag right now appears to be the "breathable" bridal bag. This particular bag is made out of a material that will allow air to pass through it. This is more desirable than the vinyl bag if you are going to store your gown in it for an extended period of time. But what about for the short term use, which is best?

My personal opinion is that for the short term... I feel that the vinyl wedding dress garment bag is best. Why? Well... I like it because it protects against moisture. When you are out in the rain with your gown you need a bridal dress bag that isn't going to allow your gown to get wet.

Now both the vinyl and breathable gown bags can rip or tear. So which one is easier to repair? Most of the time you can tape the bag back together. It is easier for tape to adhere to the vinyl material than to the breathable fabric.

"So based on my experience... I think the vinyl gown bag is the best choice to use since you are transporting your gown a lot before the wedding and it protects best against moisture. But after the wedding, if you plan on leaving your bridal dress in the garment bag for a long time you need to store it in a breathable bag."
