I bought that exact steamer – I figured $20 minus a 20%off coupon, it was worth the risk.  My wedding is at the end of April – I’ll let you know how it turns out!

i use a steamer at work all the time (i work in retail). granted I am not steaming fine gowns or anything, but it is really easy. I steam from the underside of the fabric, hold it 3-6 inches away (or whatever instruction say) and just go down in long vertical strokes (it helps you see where you have already steamed to keep a consistent pattern). Make sure you use clean water and the machine is clean.

I am sure it depends on the fabric, but mine was perfectly fine getting steamed. I picked up a $10 Conair hand steamer and it worked like a charm the day of the wedding. It’s also come in handy since the wedding-I haven’t used an iron yet since we’ve been married.
