    I don’t know if it would hurt it or not, but if you have time/space, when my veil was a wrinkled mess from being in a bag, just hanging it up allowed the wrinkles to fall out. I was actually surprised how much better it looked having nothing done but letting it not be all squished up.

    @chasesgirl:  Disclaimer: I am not an expert on veils and don’t know if this will ruin the veil.

    That being said, you can hang it in the bathroom for a couple days and the steam from your showers should help it de-wrinkle a little more gently than a clothing steamer.

    Also not an expert but from what I’ve read I think the bathroom thing would work.  I believe you can steam a veil you just want to make sure it’s not too hot because I believe you can melt the fabric.

    I also was told that the steam from the shower does the trick. We also did this to my BFF wedding dress on the big day

    Shower steam, definitely.  I have a tulle tutu-like betsey johnson dress, and it worked like magic for that, so I would think it would definitely work.

    Shower steam should be fine. I used a garment steamer on my veil a few days before the wedding and it worked just fine! It was a cathedral length tulle veil I got in the mail…so needless to say there were a ton of wrinkles haha.
