Can you steam tulle?
Apply the steam of a fabric steamer or an iron with a steam function. Direct the steam onto the wrinkled tulle with the source of steam approximately 6 to 8 inches away from the tulle. If you are using an iron’s steam, be very careful not to touch the tulle with the hot iron because the tulle will melt instantly.
Is ironing better than steaming?
Iron Pros. An iron is going to provide a clean and crisp finish overall, and will be more efficient than steaming on heavy and durable fibers and weaves, like linen, wool, and denim. It’s ideal for any garment in need of a sharp crease, like dress pants for instance, and should also work well on dress shirts.
Can you steam satin?
Satin is a lustrous textile with a smooth finish that will wrinkle, but ordinary ironing and steaming may not be the best solutions. A too-hot iron may melt the fibers, and steam alone won’t remove wrinkles from heavy-faced satin ball gowns or revive creased and crumpled wedding dresses.

What should I wear under my wedding dress?
We recommend wearing seamless underwear on your wedding day. They are usually more forgiving and don’t hug your hips as much as ones with elastic waists and side seams. If your wedding gown is very fitted, you may want to wear a seamless thong to be extra sure that no one will catch a glimpse of your panty line.
