My younger daughter, Lisa, took a break from her graduate school studies to spend the weekend in Hawaii.  She was in town to participate in a friend’s wedding as a bridesmaid.

She borrowed this Conair steamer from her aunt to iron her dress:

And look what happened to the back of her dress:

I guess the moral of the story is:  Don’t use such a device in the first place.  Lisa tried to dry the dress in our electric dryer, but there was still a spot in the back when she removed the dress from the dryer.

Anyway, Lisa used to be a hairdresser, so she offered to style everybody’s hair at a hotel in Waikiki.  It was a beautiful wedding, and the weather cooperated.  Absolutely no rain!  Halleluia!

I hope Lisa finds someone nice to marry someday.

    I guess it wasn’t bad enough to keep her from wearing it. What a shame! She wanted to get the wrinkles out and ended up with a stain instead.

    How nice that you got some time with your daughter. The hair styling was a major gift to the wedding party!

    Bless her heart. Was she upset about the dress or did she simply move forward? Did it dry enough before the wedding that the spot disappeared? Was the bride upset? I guess in the whole scheme of things, this was a minor detail.

    Glad all turned out well, what a nightmare! These things always happen.

    Lisa is such a great sport. Hair styling is arduous if creative. Years ago I went to school to become a hair stylist. I dropped out because I didn’t like the complaints I got. Not everyone has the right people skills.

    I’m glad it was a happy wedding, and the day just had one more story added to it.

    Did the steam stain the fabric? Thankfully that looks like the back of the dress and would not spoil the photos or the fun of the day.

    It would seem with Hawaii’s weather just hanging the dress out outside under cover would have “steamed” it safely. I’m glad the dress “disaster” didn’t ruin anyone’s fun. And didn’t it eventually dry?

    It’s been so cold here we’ve been thinking we should have moved to Hawaii; maybe next time; so glad the wedding went well, what a bummer about the dress, your daughter sounds wonderfully generous to fix everyone’s hair.I hope she finds the perfect partner.

  11. Suzanne Says:

    Oh no! Hopefully she was not too stressed over it. That was very nice of her to do their hair. That is a lot of work.

  12. Denise Says:

    Oh no, I don’t think I will be buying one of those things now. I had thought about it, but not so sure any more.
