Most people think there is no difference in types of bridal tulle but there is a great deal of difference.  Most of my veils I make using a high end bridal illusion which is soft and very sheer.  Styles where I want to retain shape I use a stiffer tulle.  Sometimes steaming will soften the tulle and sometimes it won’t – there really isn’t any way to know for sure until you steam it.

You might also find that steaming won’t take out all the wrinkles and be tempted to iron it.  Unless you have a sample of the tulle you can test your iron on my advice is DON"T iron it.  Tulle is very sensitive to heat and will melt if the iron is the least bit too hot.  I test EVERY time because you can’t count on your iron being exactly the same temp every time.

You might ask your bridal salon if they will steam it for you.  Some larger shops have a special dry steam iron that can be used on veils.

You know, I hung it in the bathroom while I showered and that did the trick for me.

also if you steam it and it softens you might be able to spray starch it stiff again
