The steaming appointment is normally set for the wedding day at
the same time as or just before the cosmetology appointment begins
so the dress will be as fresh as possible for the ceremony &
pictures. We recommend scheduling your steaming at least 3
hours before your ceremony or pictures, whichever comes first. More
time may be needed if you have additional garments. If you are having
an early morning ceremony or pictures the steaming should be done
the day before.
If the steaming will be in a hotel room, you will need to contact
us with the room number after you check in. Most hotels will
not give out that information for security reasons and we will not
be able to find you without it. This is especially true for all
of the Disney Resorts. They require that we know the room number
and the name the room is registered under before they will connect
For on-site steaming, there is a minimum of 1 bridal gown OR 4 dresses (formals, bridesmaids, flower girls, etc.) and/or tuxedos
(in any combination). There are no minimums on in-store steaming.
If you are unsure of how many additional dresses will need to be steamed
with a bridal gown, it is always better to over-estimate. The
number can easily be reduced, but we may not have time available for
* Number of Bridal
(Veils, slips/crinolines, wraps/shawls, etc. are considered additional items and may be added below.)
If you are requesting a bridal gown steaming, please select the style from the following:
Check this box if your gown cannot be steamed and needs to be pressed (ironed), and use the box below to tell us about your gown's fabrication.
* Number of Additional Dresses/Items:
girls, mothers dresses, veils, shawls/wraps, slips/crinolines, capes, etc.)
Number of Tuxedos or Suits:
(Each tuxedo/suit is
considered 1 piece. This includes the jacket, trousers, shirt,
vest, & tie.)
*Please use the box below to advise us of the designer's name (brand) AND fabric content your garments are made of so we may determine the proper way to
care for them. The type of fabric (satin, chiffon, crepe,
georgette, taffeta, etc.) is actually a description of the weave
of the fabric. We need to know that, as well as the type of fiber
the fabric is made of (polyester, silk, acetate, nylon, etc.). This
information should be on a tag inside your gown (the tag is most
often found at the zipper). Certain fabrics, including silk satin,
any type of taffeta, and any type of faille, cannot be steamed and
must be pressed with an iron. We do not normally bring an
iron unless we are notified in advance that it will be needed. If
you are unsure of the fabric, check the label or consult the store
where you purchased your dress.
