Hi All, I have purchased a second hand wedding dress and it is amazing, I have a few alterations to do to it but as it has been in storage for a while now I really want to get it pressed to bring it back to life. It is a mixture of raw rough silk, Italian hand stitched lace and tulle. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you O:o)

I've already purchased my dress in a local shop (big day is Mar 17) and the shop owner said to bring it out before the big day and she will steam it for me - presume that's how she straightens out all her dresses, maybe you could check if place doing alterations has a suitable professional steamer?
