I haven’t steamed my own, I’d just find someone near your venue to do it.

I don’t have any suggestions but I’m commenting to follow this. My dress is all organza, but I’m sure it can be steamed (the sales lady said it could?). My problem – aside from the organza – is that 1) my venue is 1 hour away, but it’ll take me at least 1.5-2 hours to get there with the different stops I have to make that morning, 2) the wedding is on a Sunday, so I don’t know if there will be any places open that COULD steam it if I needed it to be. I plan to lay it flat across the back seat of my car, hanging from the hook thing, so I hope I won’t add any wrinkles once I pick it up from the shop, but I was still thinking of buying a portable steamer, just in case. I’m not sure yet…

My dress was organza and I steamed mine.  I bought the best one off the reviews from amazon.  It took forever to do because I had multiple layers.  Organza is probably the most difficult fabric to steam.  If you are traveling it does make sense to do it yourself, but I recommend doing a trial run weeks before to see if your steamer works on your dress.  If it does make sure you give yourself plenty of time when arriving there to steam it.  It took me 2-3 hours.  PS I wasnt able to get out every crease, but no one could tell.

I had mine done for around that price. I took it to a private seamstress, she did a great job.
