My alterations person steamed my dress before returning it to me.

I had a destination wedding so I called a woman that my coordinator recommended and she came to my hotel room with a portable steamer and did it right there in the room. It took about 30 minutes.

The people doing alterations generally will steam it for you.

Otherwise it doesn’t take long at all you can get it the same time you visit you can take it with you.

This may sound mad but I was told by the bridal store owner to hang mine in the bathroom and just run a hot shower. My dress is satin though so maybe different rules apply? She seemed pretty knowledgable though with over 30 years experience so I’m happy to take her advice.
