I just left it in the bag. It’s already pretty wrinkled….

Do you have an extra bed you could lay it out on? That might work.

Hmm my dress is in the bag with it opened slightly wrapped in a cotton sheet. My wedding isn’t for another 10 months though. I’m sure some bees can help.

I would just leave it in the bag and have it steamed right before the wedding to get all the wrinkles out (either send if out or buy a cheap hand steamer).

I dont know if this is an option for most…but the bridal shop that did my dress is keeping my dress for me until the big day…they are also going to steam and make sure it is perfect condition for the big day.

I was able to take mine to my parents and take it out of the bag in one of their closets.

I pick up my dress on Oct 5th. It will have been steam cleaned and I am keeping it in the bag w/ the bag open.  It will be staying at our gm’s house, his wife promised no sneak peaks if or when FH is over there LOL

Can it stay at one of your close friends or a wedding party member? Your FIL’s or your parents, brother/sister’s house?

Ideally you should hang it somewhere out of the bag and lay out the train. Do you have a shower curtain rod you could use maybe?
