You probably will need to have it steamed since it will be compressed in order to travel.  I’m not completely sure but that seems like something that someone could do while you were waiting.

I think it depends on the dress materials and how easily they wrinkle.  But most likely, yes your dress will need a good pressing/steaming.  Mine is silk satin and it’s been in it’s garment bag for a long time, so the train needs a good pressing.  Just be prepared for the price… I’m paying $75 for pressing alone!  Yell

I have to bring mine on 3 flights totaling 24 hours! I am having it professionally pressed and packed and then just touching it up with a travels steamer when I get there.

I’m flying across the US with mine.  The bridal shop owner strongly encouraged me to make an appointment to have my dressed steamed after I arrive.

I just brought a hand steamer and it worked great.  My train was a little more challenging, but it all worked out. I got mine at target for like $20.
