I just received my VW351011 (in ivory) and it is pretty wrinkled from the shipping! I’m not too familiar with Organza, so any suggestions to getting them out without damaging the dress?
Also, any other VW351011 brides out there who are short (I’m 5’3) and have pics of them in the dress? Are you wearing a hoop or did you get it hemmed? I would love to see it on other brides!
Any feedback/advice is appreciated! Thanks!!!

Was it shipped to your house or did you order through a store? If it was the store, they should have steamed it for you. If it was sent direct, you might be able to call your local store and they might steam it for you.

I wore that dress and I had a wrinkle problem too. Everytime I pulled it out of the bag through alterations and such it looked a little wrinkly to me. I ended up bringing a steamer to the wedding and steamed it myself the day off just for peace of mind (because I think a lot of it was in my head) I am also 5’3″. I didn’t wear the hoop I wore one of the thicker slips, can’t remember the name but it gave it a great fullness to theskirt. (Not sure what size you are but I am going to be selling it along with other wedding stuff this week) I did get it hemmed too, my seamstress (not from DB) did pick ups from the bottom, didn’t end up having to hem much.

@misrusticj: Thanks so much for the info! Do you have any pictures of you in the dress? I would love to see it after hemming, without the hoop, on a bride my height.
