I ordered a birdcage veil for the wedding and when I took it out of the container the netting is creased in a weird sort of way. I thought I was just putting it on wrong so I took it to my hair girl and she agreed it will not lay correctly the way it is bunched unless we pin it.
Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a way to “iron out” the netting?

You could try ironing on a cool or barely warm setitng, but never hot!
On a whole though, I think most birdcages will need some sort of pinning to look perfect.

Maybe just try some steam on it first, before you try full-on ironing? If the netting has plastic in it, it could melt!

I had the same problem. What I did was put it in the bathroom with me as I showered (with the door closed) and after a few showers, the steam had gotten rid of the creases! I was too worried about damaging it with an iron.

Use a flat iron on a SUPER low setting and run it across carefully without pulling, or use steam either from an iron, steamer, or yes, even hanging it in the bathroom as a PP has said. Be sure not to fold it again when you’re done–lay it flat.

Whenever I have to iron something delicate I place a damp cloth between the material and iron. That way it’s protected somewhat. Always works for me.
