I’m not sure how you would go about doing this but maybe it could be put upside-down for a bit?  Also…has it been in a bag?  Maybe it just needs to be out and cleaned to be nice again!

I think after cleaning the dress would be good. What does the bridal shop say?

If your bridal shop is going to pay to have it cleaned HOPEFULLY they will also have a good quality steamer and have the ruffles pressed and steamed. It depends on what fabric the dress is made out of, but it can likely be brought back to life with a good steam and fluff.

Do they have an in-house or affiliated seamstress that would meet you at the shop and let you know what the dress needs? I did exactly as you are considering, but I bought my dress sight unseen from Church Street Bridal. It is an amazing dress and looks great on me, but will need to spend some time in rehab before it’s ready to go out into the world :). And if you buy it, take before pics! I washed my dress before I took pictures of it, now I wish I had taken pics first so I could see the “before” and “after” comparison.
