All the newly-wed women or those who are about to tie the knot, take note: You spend a lot of time, effort and moolah in selecting your wedding outfit. Make sure it lasts for long even after your big day. A good idea would be to keep it away from moisture and store in a proper bag, says an expert.

Designer Shaveta Choudhary rolls out a few tips that you can consider while storing you bridal wear:

* Don’t hang your outfit by the shoulder straps instead hang it by the loops located inside otherwise it will loosen the outfit.

* If possible when you fold the outfit, keep a plain paper in between the folds so the embroidery doesn’t get spoiled.

* Keep the outfit in a transparent cellophane bag as it is a natural barrier for moisture.

* Keep it away from harsh light as strong light can change the colours of the outfit.

* Dupatta can be done the same way and for blouses they can be hanged or folded away if storing for a longer time.

* Make sure to ask for extra transparent bags (self adhesive ones) from the store you have bought the bridal outfit.
