When I get mine back from the seamstress, it will be steamed/pressed and look all nice and pretty. She told me that when I come to pick it up to bring a couple of white sheets to pin around it, then to hang it up, once I get it home. She doesn’t want me to store it in the garment bag because it will probably wrinkle. I told her that I have a steamer that I could use to get the wrinkles out and she advised me not to use it on my gown because it would make the fabric sag. I have absoulutely no clue how I am going to get it to my venue without it wrinkling, but it should be okay with the way she told me to store it. Based on what she told me, I would not recommend purchasing a steamer just for this purpose.

I purchased a steamer for my veil and my BM’s for any last minute touch-ups, and we ended up using it on my dress as well.

They’re $20 at Wal-Mart, a worthwhile investment.

With my alterations i got them done months in advance of the wedding and she is going to steam it the week before the wedding. Maybe you could make a deal like that with your seamstress?
