Steam Only If Needed

Before you steam your wedding dress because you think you have to make sure that the fabric can handle it. Some fabric is very delicate and will not react well with steaming. It is best to have a professional to do it but if there is not make sure you use a flat white sheet between the gown and the plate of the steamer for extra precaution.
