- Wedding: May 2011
I went for my first fitting yesterday and was floored when the shop manager told me that to have the dress cleaned and steamed/pressed before the wedding would be $225! Just another hidden expense that I was never informed of in the beginning (slightly annoyed with the store manager, but that would be a whole other post).
My first thought is that the dress has been in a bag, why the hell does it need to be “cleaned”?
Now, the dress is a bit wrinkled from being in the bag. Has anyone ever steamed their own wedding dress? I am fairly knowledgable of fabrics and what can and can’t be done to them. I am fairly confident that i can doing a light steaming of the dress. However, there is the tiny part in my mind that thinks “What if I f-up my dress?!”.
I am on a tight budget and the costs have already exploded for the wedding. It is pretty much impossible to squeeze out anymore money! So, it looks like I may be a wrinkled bride!
