Mine is hanging up but I have brought mine into the bathroom while I take a shower so it gets indirectly steamed.  I’ve done it just a few times and it’s basically perfect.  I probably will do it a few times the week of the wedding just to be sure.

I think the shower thing is the best way to go because you are not applying heat directly onto the veil therefore there should be no damage. I usually do this with my dresses too.

Buying a steamer was the best purchase I ever made (I HATE ironing and it’s great for all those things you can’t really iron)

I’ve seen this steamer http://www.conair.com/compact-fabric-steamer-p-802.html at JCP & BBB — well worth it’s $30 price tag

Hang it up in the bathroom while you shower that should get most of the wrinkles out.  If that doesn’t get them all and you don’t have a steamer get your iron out and put it on max steam.  DO NOT TOUCH THE IRON TO YOUR VEIL!  Hold it a few inches away and press the steam button so it can get some heat on your veil to release the rest of the wrinkles.

@jennifer_espos – I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT THIS THE OTHER DAY!

i ordered mine online and it came wrapped up, so i laid it out in my “wedding room” for the past few months…

i am definitely going to use @Champagne’s idea 🙂

I hung mine in a closet and after a few days the wrinkles fell out on it’s own. If that doesn’t work I would do the steamy shower option.

Hanging the vail out of the packaging for a few days should work (If not, the shower option is great).  If you haven’t gotten you dress altered yet, you should also let your dress hang for about a week before it is altered.  The fabric does stretch/flatten out a bit with hanging and can affect things such as the hem length.

thanks jennifer for posting I was thinking aout this too. I just recently was a photographer for a last minute wedding and the veil was soooo wrinkled. They had an expensive steamer and everything but it didn’t really work by it self (when they hung it). They found out that if you lay it on the bed or somehitng of that sort, you’ll be able to get a better outcome, because the fabric behind holds the steam around the veil a little longer. And because I don’t have a steamer I was wondering what I was going to do. I also like the idea of using the steamer from the iron, that way it gets more of a direct steaming quality you know.
