I am sorry to hear your daughters wedding is getting postponed until then.

I have always stored my artificial flowers in a cool area in my home (plastic tub) and make sure the tub is large enough.

I have found the best way to keep my artificial plants looking nice and no fading is to first be sure they are clean and dry (no problem with yours) and choose a container that I can gently lay my flowers and no smushing and leave some room at the top so lid closes well.

I always place a layer of tissues paper between layers but that may not be necessary. No newspaper.
I use only dark colored airtight plastic containers/tubs as I found that any light (even through clear tubs) will fade pretty colors.
I usually try to find a dry place and they usually keep well for years.

I know a young woman who decided to have her wedding via Zoom, LOL. I'm sure y'all are happier to just wait.

I'm not sure I would store them in plastic containers, because chemicals can leach into the product and affect the integrity of the flowers, especially if they are exposed to heat or temperature changes. I would prefer metal or giant glass jars.

It's imperative to save them, either way, in a dark place not exposed to the sun. As well, hopefully in a climate controlled area that is kept at an even 75 degrees year round with only a 20% humidity.

Apply UV resistant spray for artificial flowers in a sweeping motion, let dry. Pack away/store.

We keep ours clean and wrapped in tissue paper in one of our closets. Seems to work nicely.
