    I'm bringing my portable steamer with me!  Just in case it needs a little something!  With my luck lately it would be traveling around Mexico and wouldn't make the wedding! LOL

     

    Here's the link to purchase my steamer!  It's the best thing since sliced cheese.  I don't travel without it ever!



    I flew US Air, and I (meaning my loving husband) carried my dress in a double garment bag through the whole airport as a 'carry on' item.  I was told that they could make no guarantee and that I had to ask the woman at the terminal, who also told me they could not promise me anything.  When I went in, the flight attendants even told me that I had to put it in the overhead bin, but I had a friend in first class and he just hung it there for me, no questions asked.  I would bet that if you asked someone in first class if they would mind, I'm sure they wouldn't!  I think it really depends on the people working the plane.  MOST people would be very understanding and willing to help you, knowing it is your bridal gown!!

     

    My gown shop pressed my dress before we left and I didn't need to do anything to it on my wedding day.  It was still as perfect as day 1.  If they press it nicely, it should stay.  At least know this...unless something has changed...they send your items OFF SITE to have them steamed/pressed, and it will take a few days.  If it were me, I wouldn't send me dress away!

     

    Hope this helps!

                    So I should have heard from someone by now???  I thought so but I was letting it go only because I started doing so many things on my own!  Ugh! I swear I can't win with this wedding!!!

                      I am not sure, I have a feeling someone reached out to me, because I was expressing my concern about the negative reviews to Yesenia, then magically the wedding coordinator reached out, so I wasnt sure if Yesenia told her to reach out to me earlier than normal. Because usually its around that 30 days or less mark....

                       

                      I mean if you have an idea of everything you want, then it wont be hard, you just have to tell them basically! I just basically have told her general things I want so far, because I took a back seat to planning for a while, now I feel like I am doing all of this stuff and dont know where to find the time to look at stuff!

                       

                      I am not bringing any decorations really, unlike I know most people on this have gotten their own centerpieces and table decorations, I just dont want to carry it all, the welcome bags are enough to worry about!!

                       

                      Everythign will work out for us, I am putting my faith into it and hoping everything pans out!!

                       

                      If its making you nervous reach out to Yesenia or your miami office contact, and tell them you would like to start the planning with the onsite coordinator.
