First off – how amazing do you look in that dress? Oh my God.

Wrinkly bits – could they just be caught on your underwear maybe? 

Otherwise, steaming might help but I’m not sure xx

Gorgeous dress!

Have you tried hanging it up behind the door in the bathroom when you take a shower? The steam from the shower could help loosen up the wrinkles!

If there’s no option of an alteration fix then I would definitely suggest at least trying to wear it for an hour or two at home, it might help the material and you’d get use to wearing it 😊 

Beyond that, I think you look so amazing in your dress and if say those wrinkles do persist, I promise everyone will only see how made for you that dress is! It’s not very noticeable as far as I can tell, I wouldn’t notice personally. You look so beautiful, congratulations!

lkknight:  Oh yes, I had a dress like that. It drove me mad but it did get better the more I stretched the underskirt bit 🙂

stephisaur:  haha, I know! I was trying to think of what you can do at home for 2 hours in a wedding dress and the only things I could think of were watching a movie or reading in a chair. I would want to be comfortable with my dress before the wedding day though, not just wait and see, you can bet I’d be in my living room watching X Files in my dress 🤗

How about some shape wear under the dress? Not that you need any shaping! But it might help smooth the fabric out

As a pp said, wear it for a bit to loosen it up, it’ll stretch. Also, get some slippery shapewear (if you aren’t already wearing some) to make sure there’s nothing for the dress to catch on and ride up on.

Oh my god you are so adorable and that dress is gorgeous.

I know those wrinkles are JUMPING out at you right now but no one will notice them on the day. I promise.

I have no new wrinkle advice – PPs steam it and/or try to wear it for a bit should work great.

I honestly just had to comment on how beautiful you look in that dress! No one will be focusing on any wrinkles, you will be stealing the show for sure. Congratulations on your upcoming big day!
