I purchased a simple but lovely birdcage veil from Etsy. The fabric is poufy and needs to be molded to shape my face. The seller recommended that I steam my veil, either by placing it on a ball or bowl in a steamy bathroom or by using a steamer. I am nervous that I am going to mess this up, but the clock is ticking (twelve days to W-Day!). Any pro-tips or possible landmines to avoid before I embark on this process?

EXCEPT. Except today, that person does exist.
