    How did you travel with your dress? Do you check it? Do you take it on as a carry-on? And if so will they hang it up for you? I will most likely be flying on TACA Airlines to Costa Rica and I am not sure what to do with my dress.

        That's what I'm hoping for, there is no way in H*ll that I'm going to check my dress, I'm hoping the airlines will let us use their coat rack,, but if all else fails I'll put it in the over head and I'll just have to get it pressed in Cabo.

                I went to Punta Cana last year for a wedding I was in, at Sunscape the Beach, if anyone has any questions on that place I might be able to help. Anyway, when we walked on the plan with the dress bags, the flight attendants just took then and hung them up for us, we did not have to ask. So, I would not stress about it, there will be someone there to hang up your dress, they are used to this now and are eager to help out the bride and the wedding party. I did leave from Toronto, but I can't imagine its that different on other airlines.

                The BM dresses we had did not need to be steamed, they were a chiffon material and did not wrinkle. The bride had her dress steamed for free. It worked out well for everyone involved. But, you will have to steam it for sure, no matter what.

                    I carried mine on. We flew Mexicana and they hung it up for us in First Class. I'm not going to lie, it was a pain lugging everything down there and going through all the cusatoms lines with luggage, my giant garment bag, etc. But I wasn't going to let that dress out of my sight!

                    Mariana (Dreams, Los Cabos) snatched it up for me as soon as we arrived and had it pressed. They did a great Job! The pressed my husband's suit too, n/c.

                    A little interesting fact:

                    We flew Mexicana on the way there and American on the way back. Well Mexiciana allows up to 70 lbs for checked luggage! My bag was over 60 lbs! But, American (an most other domestic Airlines only allow only 50 lbs limit for checked luggage. I assumed it was an "across the board" weight limit, but it is not. You may want to inquire with different airlines before you pack.

                      I'm a flight attendant... If they don't put in the crew cabin because it doesnt fit...(I think Taca is a regional airline- Smaller planes) I just tell my pax to roll it lightly and stick it in the overheard, or under the seat...You have more control of how wrinkled it gets
