I’ve looked into getting my dress professionally steamed before the wedding and it’s upwards of $150!! I just don’t have that kind of money.
A friend of mine has a personal steamer at her house, that will get the job done right?

My Future Mother-In-Law used a personal steamer on her daughter’s wedding dress and it turned out just fine. But her dress was all silk/satin (not sure which), so I can’t say how it would turn out on a more intricate design.

start at the top and work in long strokes.
It depends on what your dress looks like, but if it has ruffles, steam each one separately. If there is lots of seaming, go in the direction of the seams.
Don’t hold it too close to the fabric and if you have lots of embellishments you may need to protect them.

We are planning on doing the same thing. I was told to make sure there is a guard or something on it (not sure exactly what it is called) to keep any water from spraying out.

At my best friends wedding, her mother steamed her dress while we were all getting ready. It seemed to work just fine. I even used it on my dress haha! Like Allyser mentioned, make sure there is a guard

Thanks for the tips guys!
My dress is actually really simple so hopefully it won’t be a ton of work.
