              I had my first dress visit in July and was surprised at the amount of detail I didn't recall. Can't wait to see it.

                : D Yeah for real!!! i was the same way with mines too.

                 

                To all RIU brides, quick question, what did you do in regards to your dresses when you got to the hotel?

                how did your dress get steamed or cleaned if it got any spots in transiton? curious to know.

                 

                and what was the price?

                 

                thanks

                  As soon as we got to our room, I took my dress out of the garment bag and put it in the opposite side of the closet from my clothes and hung something in front of it so you could not see it, then on the morning of the wedding, as soon as my fiancĀ© left the room to go meet up with his groomsmen, I hung it up in the doorway. Most of the wrinkles fell out from the humidity alone, then one of my bridesmaids used my travel steamer ($20 from bedbath&beyond, and well worth it), to get the few remaining wrinkles out. I would not trust letting your wedding dress out of your hands. Too risky. What if they lose it or mess it up. Things are not as organized on this resort as they should be. The wedding site is amazing, and overall I loved my wedding, but it is SO laid back, it's almost to a fault when important aspects of your wedding are concerned. That travel steamer is very powerful and there is no reason to send your wedding dress out of sight. Too scary! My dress was more traditional as opposed to destination-like, and if it can work on my dress with a train and beading and everything, it can work for anyone. Hope this helps! :)

                    Great!! Ashleyp13,

                     

                    Thank you so much for that info. i will look into getting that steamer.

                    I know what you mean about letting the dress out of sight...im totally scared!! my dress also has a lot of beading and train.

                    I also sighted a little stain on my dress but proberly wont be noticeable...Jamaica on a whole is so very laid back...till it's a little annoying sometimes

                    especially when you use to things moving a little faster. : D

                      I'm bringing a travel steamer as well. The idea of having it done offsite makes me a bit nervous! Thanks for the tips Ashley! Beginnin94, what date is your wedding in October? Had to believe it is almost here!
