@radical4peace:  First off, your gown is gorgeous!  You are going to look amazing on your big day!  Depending on how snug your gown is, I would consider reordering.  It looks like you won’t be marrying for a while, so you don’t have to worry about timelines.  Your seamstress will steam your gown and magically the wrinkles will all disappear!  So, don’t stress about how it is packaged.  Good Luck!

I think they should order the dress in the correct size.  You shouldn’t have to pay to have it altered to fit you because they measured you wrong in the first place.  I’m not sure if I would say anything about the wrinkles, you will have to steam and press your dress before you wear it after having a seamstress touching it anyway.

Call the shop and let them know that since they caused the error they should reorder you the gown in your proper size.  I had similar problems when my dress came in except it was the manufacturer’s issue.  But my issues were completely resolved by the store.  You shouldn’t have to settle after spending all that money buying a dress.  And it’s hard to let a dress out and that shouldn’t be your problem to deal with. 

Also your dress is beautiful and will look amazing on you at your wedding.

I would definitely make them re-do your order. It’s really pretty on you, though. I absolutely love the top!

I’m also going to chime in with, ask the store to order the correct size. Especially since it was a mistake they made. You shouldn’t have to be the one to deal with their mistake. The wrinkles I’d worry less about, the dress will be steamed as part of the alterations and that will take care of the wrinkles.

The sample dress is lovely! 🙂

The dress is beautiful! I would definitely insist on having it reordered – some of my bridesmaid dresses came in too small as a result of horrible measurement, and they kept refering me to alterations until I sort of flipped out.
