    Hi all, I was wondering whether anyone out there has had their dress steamed at a Sandals? I'm getting married at Sandals Grande Antigua in May, and the hassle of transporting the dress super carefully to lessen wrinkles and then try to use a portable steamer when I am there is just too much stress.  My dress is taffeta, gets super wrinkled, and doesn't seem to respond to the steamy shower method.  I would at least like it to be wrinkle-free for the ceremony (afterwards it's fine, it actually looks fine with some wrinkles).


    Does anybody have any experience using their services? 


    Thank you!  And thank you all for your posts that I'm learning so much from!

      I spoke to my WC for Sandals Negril on Friday and asked this very question. She said steaming starts at $80 and goes up from there depending on the fabric/complexity of dress. I decided I'll bring my own hand held steamer instead of adding another cost haha. I would def check with your WC as it might be different prices on diff islands/resorts.

        Thanks!  That's the same as they told me.  At first I was definitely against it, but now it seems worth it because of the headache and having to get the steamer, and the absolute certainty I would probably screw it up and would end up calling my FI in to talk me down....then he would see the dress.  For some reason, this is the "headache" for me--the one problem causing stress.
