Ok...Cabo Wedding...Great Idea...How the heck do I get my dress there?
Posted 14 March 2008 - 12:53 AM
Being unfamiliar with all things 'wedding', I'm asking for advice on how to get my dress down to Cabo for the wedding, preferably, from past brides who've actually done it already. Do I take it down on the plane with me, wrinkling it horribly or do I ship it down risking it not arriving on time or at all? I'm thinking I will take it down and bring one of those handheld steamers to steam out the wrinkles. However, I just found out today from a recent groom that the dress doesn't show up from the store ready-to-wear so it has to be pressed anyway. Should I not have it pressed in the US and take it down, not worrying about the wrinkles since it's not pressed anyway, and take it to a place in Cabo to be pressed?
Is there a magic wedding dress transportation machine that will solve this problem? If not, advice is seriously appreciated.

But definitely take it with you on the plane, you want it in your sight and by your side at all times!!

Then when you get to your resort hang it. Our resort offered pressing but being paranoid I decided to just let it hang and any wrinkles that were created during transit were gone before the wedding. You could always hang in the bathroom with the shower running on hot, but don't do this if you have a silk dress.. water stains on silk are horrible.

ok first a few questions:
1) do you have a hotel yet? the WC at the hotel should be able to tell you if they can press your dress on premises.
2) have you booked your airline, or at least chosen which airline you'll fly? oftentimes if you call your airline after booking to tell them you're flying for a DW and will be carrying your dress, depending on the airline, they will either let you hang it in the 1st class/captain's closet, or give you your own overhead bin for it. angela is right though, my dress shop is doing what she recommended -- filling the top section with a form to keep the breast shape.
