Portable Dress Steamer?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone take there own dress steamer with them? I am looking into this as i dont want to send my dress away to do this....(our resort sends them away)

Just wondering if the portable ones are just as good.

My dress is pretty simple. Just straight satin.

Hoping to get some feedback...

Thanks :)

I did not take one down myself but another BDW bride did so and I borrowed hers. I did not use it, but I do know that the steamers do a good job, however the regular iron does an even better job, My WC also mentioned that most girls just wrap the dress in plastic and let the steam from the shower smooth out the wrinkles. Satin should be reallly easy to straighten out with the shower and steamer

I bought a portable steamer from Bed, Bath, & Beyond for 30 bucks that I'm planning on bringing with me. It is about the size of a hair straightener, so it will fit easily into my suitcase. I haven't tried it out yet, but if I ever remember to try it, I'll let you know how it works!

I brought one with me b/c I wasn't sure if my resort "steamed" dresses or only ironed them... And since my dress was organza it had to be steamed, not ironed...

I tried it out before leaving on a section of my dress -- and it worked!

 

(But when we got to our resort, it turned out they did offer steaming...so I never used it in Mexico...) However, I've used it on other clothes since then and it works:-)

I have a dupioni silk dress, would love to hear what other ladies thought? I def. want to bring a steamer with me, I dont trust it to the resort or some 3rd party steaming vendor. If there is a particular brand that works best would be great to know.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
