“I had my wedding dress and bridesmaid dress steamed and I was pleased with the end results. My only complaint is the different information I was given on the phone versus when I dropped it off in the store. My dress was my mothers and 42 years old. When I called and asked if it could be steamed, I confirmed that it was an old dress and did not need cleaning. I was told it would take a week and I had no problem with that. However, when I went to drop it off a few days later, all the employees said it takes months to steam a dress. The man I worked with the day I dropped it off was very nice and was helpful. I left the dress and they put a rush on it. I got it back just in time for the wedding. I just wish whoever I talked to on the phone would have told me it could take longer than a week or even tell me that they would need to see the dress before giving an estimate. Plus when I got a call the day after I dropped it off they said my dress normally would take six months to steam. Six months seems a bit much. However, like I said I was pleased with the dresses and I had a beautiful wedding.”

If you purchased your gown and had your alterations done at the same place, chances are they pressed or steamed the gown for you before you picked it up. Regardless of how you acquired your dress, ask your seamstress to be sure. In this case, you would not need your gown steamed again.

If you acquired your gown second-hand, this service may be for you.

If you need to travel with your dress before the wedding, you will want to steam and or press your dress at your destination before your wedding day.
