I think just keep it like she has it…I”m assuming you’ll just take it in the week you get married to get it pressed and steamed. Then bring it home and hang it up outside the bag until the big day!! (I hung mine on the celing fan in our guest room and let the train spread out to keep it wrinkle free, so I just had to stuff it back in the bag to get to the church and it was fine!)

I left mine in the bag, the way the consultant had it.  I have taken mine out occasionally to just stare at it & have noticed some wrinkles, but nothing horrible. Best bet is to take it out before the wedding and let it hang so some of the wrinkles can work out.  If its to bad I would recommend getting it pressed.

I got mine about 7 months before my wedding. It is currently hanging at my parents house- we just hung it out of the bag, and actually used really large trash bags to wrap around the bottom (but still letting it hang and not be folded). Didn’t want it to get dirty though- since we had so much time!! I’m trying it on again this weekend, so hopefully there will be no wrinkles.

When I bought mine, they told me to not worry about wrinkles at all. I’m getting mine altered (and I’d guess you are at least to put some type of bustle in) and they said that they’ll steam it when they do alterations. Also you can usually take it in the week of the wedding and they’ll steam all the wrinkles out for you.
