Are you having a final fitting or anything where you live, or are all of your alterations complete?

After my final fitting, the alterations shop steamed my dress and kept it for me till a few days before my wedding.

You could also attempt to steam it yourself, assuming it’s safe for the fabric, etc that your particular dress is made out of. I have a handheld steamer from Macy’s that was pretty affordable!

Hanging it in a closet should work, but yes, hanging it in the bathroom while you take a hot shower with the door closed will work better and will not hurt your dress.

@Bunny_the_Bride:  Have it professionally steamed. Some wrinkles may fall out while it hangs but most will not! Good luck!
