What causes a wedding gown to “yellow”?

The dyes used in making up the wedding gown’s fabric include certain forms of acids. After awhile the dyes will start to break down and release these acids which will cause the fabric to “yellow”. To help prevent “yellowing” it is recommended that the wedding gowns be stuffed with acid free tissue paper and check in an acid free or acid neutral box.
