    Are we allowed to bring our wedding dresses on board. Do we need to do anything prior to arriving to the airport. Did anyone experiance any problems or have other suggestions for transfering the dress

      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.

            Thanks for posting this. I was worried about the baggage limit as well as where it would be put.
