I just purchased a Casablanca 1948 wedding dress. When I tried it on, it was wrinkled. I’m scared that it will wrinkle when I wear it on my wedding day. How can I find out exactly what sort of satin material the dress is and whether it will wrinkle on my wedding day? I wonder if anyone has experience with the same dress.

What a gorgeous dress! It probably hasn’t been steamed yet, if you’re not finished with all your fittings. Ask the bridal salon, since they should steam it for you before you pick it up. Also, where are you getting dressed? If it’s at a hotel, they usually have steamers available so you can do a touch-up. If you’re dressing somewhere else, just bring along your own steamer. You can even bring a mini steamer to the reception venue and keep it in the bathroom in case you need to use it partway through. I’m sure you’ll be fine!
Also, the dress might have a tag with the materials listed, but if not, I’m sure your bridal salon can tell you. Just give them a call.

I plan to get changed in the hotel where I’m getting married at, but I’ve never exactly steamed a dress before. Is there one that you would recommend for steaming a wedding dress?

FYI: If your dress is real SILK satin – don’t steam it! Have it professinally pressed. This is very imortant because steam will leave water marks on silk.
If your dress is a polyester satin then it can be steamed.
