I was pretty shocked when my seamstress told me it would be an extra $80 to have my dress steamed. This seemed like a lot to me. Did anyone steam their own dress? I’m highly considering it but would love to hear other people’s thoughts/experiences before I make a final decision.

Def want to follow this. I would like tips if you have a satin type gown (mine is a Maggie Sottero Gown) and how to steam it as I do not want to burn it up! LOL

Luckily, my seamstress only charged $20 to steam the dress. But for my bridal shower, I registered (and received) a shark steamer. We used that to touch up the dress the day of and now I don’t have to use an iron in everyday life!! lol

My mom steamed my cousins dress for her wedding in April. She just started on a low setting. It turned out fine. You need to be careful like you would with an iron. As the PP stated, you don’t want to burn it up.

My seamstress doesn’t offer the service, asked the local dry cleaners and it will be $75 for me!
