How Do I Care for a Birdcage Wedding Veil?

Two Cents: Is getting steamy my best option?

How Do I Care For A Birdcage Wedding Veil? Steaming?
Q:Hi APW!
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?

Thank you!

OKay, APW, this is a good one! Did you buy (or DIY) one of these beauties, and then get it wrinkled? What’s the best option you found to care for a birdcage wedding veil? Did you accidentally ruin one? Is the steaming process–gasp—foolproof? We need to know!
