i would just pay to have them do it again! you dont want someone to mess it up and some of those materials can be easily ruined with just too much steam coming out. I say better safe than sorry on this one and take it back into DB.

$40 is actually really cheap for steaming. I’d take it to them. A drycleaner may charge you even more!

I tried steaming my dress myself using a handheld steamer and NONE of the wrinkles came out. I even used the recommendations of my seamstress but nothing worked. I’d just pay to have it professionally done if there are a lot of wrinkles.

I would pay the $40 to have David’s redo it.  It’s going to cost at least $100 at a dry cleaners.  When I inquired about my dress, the average price for steaming was $200.

Make sure you get a big car where you can lay the dress down flat to transport it after steaming.  I wasn’t thinking and picked my dress up in my little VW.  I reclined the passenger seat all the way and laid the dress down.  It went from my dash, all the way to the back of my trunk!
