Anyone thought of steaming their own dress?

I am just having sticker shock about steaming a dress and was wondering if anyone has thought of doing their own or know someone that has.  I can buy a nice steamer for the cost a bridal shop will charge and then own a steamer for future use.  I am worried about damaging my dress and don't know if this is an easy endeavor or not.  I am not trying to sound cheap but spending $80 (more than the cost of my alterations to steam a dress seems ridiculous!  Just curious about what you girls think.

    Call CiCi's if you are in/near St. Pere.  They are doing mine since I am coming over from Orlando and they said either 30 or 35 (I can't remember!)  As for steaming your own, I'm sure it would be fine!  I was just in a wedding and after traveling it was pretty wrinkled so I just ironed it on a low setting and that was fine!

    I own a stand-up steamer (like the kind you see in dept. stores, with the log pole you can hang the dress on) so I'm doing my own.   I asked the lady doing my alterations, and she said as long as you're careful to not get any water (condensation) droplets on your dress, it will be fine.
