    I need to get my dressed pressed and also packed for travel on the plane because I don't want to depend on the resort to press my dress.
    I'm just wondering for those who did this, how much did you spend?
    I've been quoted $40-250.

    Thanks!

      The place I purchased my dress does it for free. The will also include instuction to for pressing/steaming if needed when you arrive at the resort.

        Most resorts will do this for you. It might not be worth it to do it ahead of time since it will get wrinkly on the plane.

          Does the Dreams participate in dress pressing?

            Isn't where you purchased your dress steaming it for you? I would not make a big deal prior because your dress will get a little wrinkly in travel. I would suggest bankin on steaming it when you get to the resort or steaming them on your own.

              I'm getting mine steamed at the resort for $20 since there'll be wrinkles from travel. You could also get it pressed before leaving and then use a travel garment steamer to release any wrinkles.

                Not sure which Dreams you are inquiring about but Dreams Los Cabos has steaming or pressing of some sort, and it is included in most of the wedding packages.

                  The salon where I purchased my dress refused to let me get my dress pressed there since I did my alterations off site (I"m so annoyed with this salon right now). NOw, I have to find somewhere else to go and I'm so nervous about leaving my dress with someone that I don't know/trust.
                  Also, I've heard that you shouldn't have the resort do it either because that's a huge risk. I was told the best thing to do is get it pressed at home and then have it packed safely for travel. What have other people done?

                    I believe that I read that someone hung their dress in the bathroom and steam helped. But I guess it depends on the material.

                    I would trust the resort and bring a travel steamer for peace of mind.
