@Chelle-Lee:  Honestly?  I didn’t do a thing. I brought my dress with me to the place where we were getting ready, and then I just wore it to the venue.  Yes, it got a little wrinkled, but none of that really mattered to me…

@Chelle-Lee:  If it is in your budget, I would see if you can get your dress pressed right before your wedding especially if it is made of a fabric that wrinkles easily. I had a couture cleaners press and steam my gown. They delivered it to our hotel the night before so perfectly packed (I put it in one of my BM’s room until the next morning). It was costly, but worth it. I LOVED that I did not have to worry about transporting my dress to our venue two hours away. I had a huge train. A cleaners next to me said not to put it back into my garment bag as it would defeat the purpose of pressing it, so I would have needed to use a SUV or van to transport it – with all our wedding stuff, there would have been no room lol!

@Chelle-Lee:  Carry it in the dress bag and put it on 🙂 Get a little hand steamer and touch it up if you’re worried about wrinkles, but they will do a really good job pressing it after alterations and you should be fine.
