    I'm getting Married at Compass Point April 29, 2011. We are have rented a Stone's Throw Away Bed and Breakfast for our all of our guests. That way it will only be our fam and friends and no wild chidren or tourists. My wedding Panner, Victoris Sarne has been great, but I am having trouble "ironing out" one specific detail (no pun intended).

     

    How am I going to dewrinkle my dress? It has to be hand steamed and the small B&B doesn't offer a service. The wedding planner recommeded I take it to a dry cleaners, but I'm feeling nervous about it.

     

    Any suggestions???

     

    Here are the wedding details in case anyone is interested in what we have planned.

     

    Thursday our guests' arrive and we will have cocktails by the pool at the B&B. That night we are having a pig roast on the beach at the Poop Deck @ Sandyport.

     

    Friday morning me and the girls are going to the Marley Resort Mystical Spa for for mani/pedi. The wedding is at 5 on the dock at Compass Point followed by a cocktail hour with a calypso band. For the reception we are having the choice of steak/chicken/ pasta. And a simple cake. We will have a DJ for the night.

     

    Saturday the men are going deep sea fishing and we are either going to have the B&B prepare it for us for dinner.

     

    Then we are off to Greece for our Honeymoon!!!

          hi,

          what is your material of your dress? Mine was chiffon and we just ironed it. It was perfect!

           

          congrats too! Bahamas is fantastic!

              I found a place in the Cable Beach shopping center That will come to you and steam for a very reasonable price. I have my gown, grooms tux, and 4 bridesmaids dresses all for about $125. The place is called Buttons Bridal and Formal Wear LTD. They had a very quick response.

               

              I think I have everything planned, but now I just have to hope the wedding planner has everything in order. She just sent a full list of everything I owe and all the plans. There are several things that were wrong! yikes!! She is suggesting that I wire her the remaining balance because the oversees fee is twice as much for using a credit card. Any thoughts?

                Are you also staying at Compass point?  What did you choose for your meal/bar selection?

                  If you email local dry cleaners and formal wear shops, there are several that will come to you. We ended up going with Buttons Bridal and Formal wear because they got back with us so quickly and the price was reasonable.
