For those of you bees out there who bought your wedding dress online or already own it — how are you making sure it’s wrinkle-free for the big day?
I know when I get it altered she’ll probably steam it but what about the transition period between that time and the day I wear it?
Should I purchase a steam thing just for this purpose??

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.

@noritake22: Wonder if it depends on the fabric though? What was your fabric?
@latentsmile: That is a great idea for the BM’s dresses too…4 of the 6 are from out of town and their dresses are satin. I’m sure we’ll use it.

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?
