I would get it altered in CA and take it with me to Michigan. Once in Michigan you can find some to steam out the wrinkles.   I am thinking this mostly because I wouldn’t trust to send my dress around the country.

I’m in a similar situation.  I purchased my dress in Massachusetts and then also moved to California.  I’m having my alterations done in Massachusetts — but that’s where I’m from, and I go back to visit fairly regularly.  It seems like in your case, bringing (or shipping) your dress to Michigan might be a good option.  As long as you anticipate flying back there once or twice, and getting alterations done at that time.  Otherwise, if you don’t have many trips planned to Michigan, then maybe you should get your alterations done in Cali, and just fly with your dress to the wedding.  Just be aware that it’s kind of a pain to fly with a wedding dress.
