Are you sure you will need to have your dress steamed the day of the wedding?  I had mine steamed after it was altered and then just kept it hanging outside the bag until the day of the wedding.

There is a place called Hershey Cleaners in Gaithersburg, MD.  My alterations lady recommended them.  I had to have my sample dress cleaned and steamed before alterations and they did great work. I plan to take my veil there as well.

Will your alterations place steam it?

I had my alterations done at the bridal shop (Blush Bridal) (independent contractor), and, had I gotten married locally, they would have kept my dress and steamed it before my wedding.

I ended up taking it to a place I found on Yelp with good reviews (long distance wedding)– it worked out fine. I took it at the beginning of the week and picked it up the day of my wedding. It can take a few days, so give some time.
