So I found the answer to my own question: - your wedding dress does not count as your carry on luggage. You can bring it on the plane however most of their planes do not have a spot fot it so it will have to go in the overhead bin

I heard both good and bad stories about Skyservice. Sometimes the attendants are awesome, allow you to lay your dress flat in the overhead that holds the pillows so no one puts their stuff on your dress, to attendants that have told brides to roll up the dress and stuff it under the seat. There is no way I am stuffing my dress under the tiny seat!! Can you imagine telling the attendant she had to do that to her dress. The nerve!! I hope they are in a good mood on April 18th!!! I'm going to try and have my FH's suit not count as a carry on as well. Why should the privilege only extend to the bride? The groom is just as important. Some people have even gotten away with bringing their bridesmaid dresses or MOB dresses on and not count as an extra. But once again, it depends on the agents discretion. What I'm going to do to maximize the amount I can bring without getting dinged with extra charges for weight allowances is buy a big bag and call it my purse, which is also not considered a carry on.

We booked through Sunquest but flew with Air transat which I don't think is much different (crappy). They helped me with the dress on the way down and I believe they put it in the closet for me but on the way back they didn't even offer. I just put it up in the overhead bin folded. I also put "now" my husbands suit in the same bag as my dress and that worked too. No questions asked but it was extremely heavy! So I suggest that you can do that also. My Dress did have a lot of beading and it was fine once we got down there.

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
