    I picked your local dry cleaner, but honestly I would do whatever would make you feel the most comfortable. Since it is just being steamed I think you will be find whereever you go.

    go with option 3 of your going to use it more then once. But if not then go to your regular cleaners, I’m sure they will do a great job.

    Wow!  $189 to steam your dress?  I called my local dry cleaners who are more somewhat top end around here, and they quoted me $150+ to CLEAN my dress (which i’m assuming includes steaming it).  I would go with the local place you know.  Just because they aren’t top end doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re doing or won’t treat your dress like gold 🙂  Sometimes the “little guys” care the most!


    Good luck!  Oh, and about buying your own steamer, I would be afraid…what if something bad happened?

    I steamed my dress and veil on the day of the wedding and honestly it was a piece of cake, even with my ridiculous train. Even if you pay someone to do it you still will have to transport it, I’m assuming, to your venue that might cause additional wrinkles.

    I vote for buying a simple steamer and doing it yourself (or have a Bridesmaid or Best Man do it while you are getting ready).

    Can you ask the tailor for a recommendation?

    If you already have an established relationship with your dry cleaner, they will probably go out of their way to make you happy for your big day!  I am sure they will do a great job if all you need is a good steaming. 🙂
