That’s actually pretty good, I called a place in West Hollywood and was told $195. Then I realized the wrinkles in the tulle kinda themselves out when taken out of the bag, so I’m not doing anything.

My steaming is $35 but I live in a rather small city in Ohio.  I’m sure regions make a big difference too.

Mine was between $75-80.  My dress was dupioni silk and I was more than happy to spend the $$ to have a professional take care of it.

my alterations lady did it and she didn’t charge any extra beyond the cost of alterations, which were $120 for side seams taken in, bust taken in a little, and a bustle added.

Mine was free because I got my dress at David’s Bridal.

@SoonToBeMrsJordan: Really? David’s Bridal does a dress pressing? Or is that only with alterations? They didn’t tell me this when I bought my dress!

it is free with alterations where I got my dress (at house of brides), but I think I may be able to get it done when I have my bustle installed.

Are you talking about getting it pressed before or after the wedding?  I got mine pressed for free where I got my dress and alterations done before the wedding.  I havent cleaned mine yet, its STILL at my parents house in their closet.

Sheesh I haven’t factored that cost in yet.  I just bought a steamer from woot!  But I won’t have it with me for the wedding. 

@ddubzz btw congrats on doctorhood!  I’m just about to take step 1 and right now life seems pretty sucky!  Can’t wait to get to where you are 🙂
