Michelle -- as well, some resorts require as much as 72 hours (sometimes more!) to take your dress and steam it, and some brides just don't have that much time after arriving! (some may be getting married the next day or day after and may not want to risk it...)

Done! Well, I just emailed the WC at Shangri-La (my resort) to ask if they have a steamer on site.

I am arriving on Sunday night and the wedding is on Friday, so I could conceivably bring it into town if necessary during the week.

 

Am I nuts to think I might just be able to hang it in the bathroom and turn the shower on?blush2.gif

Anyone had experience with Canadian flights? We are flying skyservice and I have another bride sharing the wedding day/plane with us. I am hoping we will both be able to hang ours in the closet. Mine is fairly heavy and not sure i could lift it that high..*lol*.

Here's hoping for both us girls.

You know what else just occurred to me? How do we get it through security? I don't think it will fit through the x-ray machine!

 

And it's not just about wrinkles for me. This is the most expensive item of clothing I've ever owned. The thought of folding it up and having people shove their bags on top of it is a nightmare.

 

There is a service called DryKlean that comes to the Hilton to steam the dress...my WC told me about it. They may come to yours, too.

I have contacted my airline and they usually hang if there is room, otherwise the flight attendant will wait until everyone has their overhead luggage in and lay the dress overtop. Try asking for that if nothing else? Good luck!

On the flight now...we got first class, so no prob hanging in closet. Two other brides on the flight as well. All dresses are hanging! The only issue was getting it through the x-ray machine...it ended up in a ball at the bottom of the garment bag. Not sure how that happened in a matter of 2 minutes, but it did!

 

All is well! I'm off!

Oh crap... security! LOL! That will be funny. My dress is just a little on the poufy side... FI will FREAK if they want to open up the bag. He'll stand there with his eyes tight shut. THat will be hilarious. LOL! smile116.gif

Agreed on the expensiveness and just it makes me sad to think of it getting crushed.

Oh and my WC got back to me. Apparently the front desk can loan me an IRON. She must not have understood? Unless she means steaming machine. Ugh. I am sure there'll be a place in town (PLaya del Carmen) worst comes to worst. Ti then I'll hope for the best from the good folks on American Airlines.

I totally agree. I am so freaked out by the thought of flying with my dress. It's the most gorgeous, expensive thing I've owned, and I will go nuts if anything happens to it. It's $360 each person to upgrade to first class, and with every other cost associated with the wedding, I don't know if we are going to make that happen. Ugghhh....

Awesome!! Thank you for this! I am flying Transat too and my TA made it sound like the closet wouldn't be an option.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
