This is a great question and one I didn’t think of until now. My dress is in organza too!

I just looked up care for organza fabric and they say (ehow.com) it can be ironed on warm (not hot) setting. I figure that might work for the stubborn creases/wrinkles. I have not tried doing this but if if I do I would try first on a small patch at a hidden area.

Another tip was to hang the dress in the bathroom while you shower. The steam is supposed to help the wrinkles fall.

Yes! What she told you is true and it happened to my dress!!!! Be VERY careful with real silk organza. The problem is that they look like just wrinkles to us but they are actually permananet damage to the weave of the fabric. The individual strands of the fabric loosen and twist out of place and they cannot be repaired. I didn’t know this until after my dress was already ruined 🙁 It took a $725 cleaning to get it into a reasonable state or repairs.

My dress wasn’t organza but 100% cotton and it was already wrinkled before I walked down the aisle.  :/  It was steamed right before putting it on – but once I sat down it was never the same.  The ceremony photos were alright but the rest of the night it was a giant wrinkled mess.  Darling Husband is photoshopping it better but sometimes there’s not much you can do…
