Anyone steam their wedding dress?
I picked up my dress on theirsday, and I ca’t keep it at my home because I have a chocolate lab who drools and sheds. Would make for a nasty wedding dress!
So I brought it to my FSIL’s house, but she doesnt have a ton of space to lay out my huge dress for a whole week. A couple days before I can go over and take out the train, but I was thinking since it was in the bag for a week it might still have a few wrinkles. I have a steamer, but will steaming it ruin it? I’m afraid it will get watrer spots or something – I’bve never steamed anything before. any ideas what I should do? Should I just take it back home, fan it out, and pray my dog stays away? thoughts???

Oh – ps, my dress is lace with a good amount of beading – its a casablanca 1914.

Well Im not sure about all the lace and beading because all fabrics are differe,t. but when i was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, i steamed the rides dress (long story) and i had never steamed anything before and it came out great! Id practice on something else before i do the dress if i had a second chance at things…

I steam everything. I picked up a steamer before a friends wedding earlier this year and it worked amazingly. Target – $70. Best $70 I have spent. We used it on her dress, table cloths, bridesmaids, etc…..I have never used one before and it was easy.
