    Don't count on being able to hang it up. We were on a flight down for a site visit and a bride was crying because they didn't have a place to put her dress (except the overhead compartment).

      I really like the idea of putting it in a small check-in bag. That way you won’t have to stuff your dress in the over head compartment and watch everyone smash it. I would be every upset and probably cry.

        I just spoke to a representive for the airline we are flying with and they told me they dont have room to hang it, that I have to put it in an overhead compartment. I am going to have to guard that compartment with the life to make sure no one puts anything on top of it!

          I loved this idea too until I remembered the times my luggage has gotten lost and took several days to arrive after me....



          I don't think the idea of carrying it on and even having to store it in the overhead bothers me because I'd hold it on my lap until everyone had their heavy bags already in the compartment. If it got wrinkled, we'll be there 2-3 days in advance, so I'll check to make sure the resort has some place where it could be steamed for me, if needed.

          I like Natasha's seamstress tho---- that was really neat of her to tell you what to get and bring it to her so she could pack it for you without worry....

            I'm telling you - the people that you will talk to when you call know nothing about what you will be able to do when you get there. It's the flight attendants and gate agents you need to talk to when you get there!

                I believe it to be a little suitcase with rollers that you can store in the overhead compartment of the plane.

                  Girls - don't frett about the overhead compartment thing. The flight attendants used the one in the way back, right next to where they sit/stand & kept it exclusively for my dress. They guarded it for me. Just be a real happy faced sweetie to them & they will treat you well.
