- Wedding: October 2010
I will have to take several long car rides and possibly an airplane trip with my dress in tow. I will be getting all my alterations done and having my dress steamed in my home state before the wedding. But between then and the wedding, the dress will have to travel. When you travel for many days in a car (or plane) with the dress, I presume it will get all wrinkled again despite having been already steamed. The town I am getting married in is not big and there isn’t a bridal or formalwear store or dry cleaners within an hour and a half distance. Has anyone out there purchased or used a small, inexpensive mini steamer for their dress? I was thinking of getting one of those so that the day before the wedding I can steam out all the travel-induced wrinkles myself in my hotel room. Is this a good idea, or do you have any better suggestions? Do those mini travel-friendly steamers actually work, or are they useless?
