    Has anyone had their dress steamed or pressed in Maui?? On the west side near Lahaina or Kaanapali??

    I leave tonight and I still don't know what I'm doing
    I thought I would get a travel steamer, but just realized you don't steam silk.

      Stacy, Talk to Deanne. She recommended a bridal store (adjacent to the Sugar Beach Resort) near Kihei that pressed/steamed my dress for about $80. They did an excellent job. Have a wonderful time!

        For any future brides, the name of the store that steamed my dress was Elly's Formal Wear. The owner, Elly, was very sweet and was able to handle my request on only 48 hrs notice.

          I FED EX'ed my dress and his suit to Martinizing Dry Cleaners in Kaanapali which is really easy to get to if you are staying in Lahaina.
          I would suggest shipping it 2 weeks in advance so you dont have to pay to ship quickly.
          I didn't have to worry about packing and bring my dress in my luggage and it gave them plenty of time to have it steamed and ready when we got there.
          Although I had tracking on it, the people at the cleaners called me to let me know that they had received it (I didn't ask them to, so I thought that was nice).

            Fed Ex'ing the dress is a fantastic idea!!      


            That will save me alot of anxiety on the numerous flights we take to get to Maui.


            Thank you for the heads up!!

              Elly's Formal Wear was great. I used them twice while on the island.  They steamed my dress before my wedding.  After the wedding I did trash the dress photo shoot and my dress was more than trashed. They were able to clean it and get it to me the next day before I left the island.  My dress looks good as new. The ladies at Elly are extremely helpful.
