Wedding season is upon us! June is still the most popular month for weddings and that means there are a lot of "just married" brides and brides-to-be out there. With weddings come the gifts, of course. We want to remind you to properly care for your wedding silver before tarnish and corrosion can get to it.
Weddings are usually such a whirlwind that it could be often be several weeks or even months before newlyweds sort through all their gifts. The idea behind protecting your silver is to prevent tarnish before it starts. This means, that wedding silver, silver flatware, sterling hollowware and serving pieces should be stored properly in anti-tarnish packaging as soon as possible.
As the environment we live in becomes increasingly corrosive, your silver valuables are at a greater risk for tarnish and corrosion. In order to keep your wedding silver in the pristine condition you received it in, it is crucial that you use protective storage. Anti-tarnish boxes and silverware rolls are just a couple of the anti-tarnish storage products available to preserve your silver.
Once you have chosen which tarnish prevention product is right for your collection, you will want to pay attention to a few other silver storage tips. Opt for anti-tarnish products that will not coat your silver or leave any detectable deposits behind. Also, when storing your wedding silverware or other items, make sure not to store too many pieces in the same compartment as this can cause scratching and knocking. When you pull out your beautiful silver for something special, the last thing that you want to see is any damage or discoloration.
Usually reserved for special occasions, wedding silver especially needs efficient anti-tarnish storage. Make sure your pieces are clean and dry before storage between uses so that when you are ready to use it, you will not need to do extra cleaning or polishing. Eliminate the hassle from the start.
The right anti-tarnish packaging and storage will keep your wedding silver a shining reminder of your special day!
