HOLY CRAP!!! That is terrible. That makes me want to cry! I'll definitely put mine inside out.

We flew Skyservice as well and we did have to put in up overhead...but another bride had to put hers in the same spot so we both took extra care leaving the plane so as to end up with the right dress :)

They do have irons and boards (at least in the Junior Suites anyways) my mother in law had a reg. room and she requested both to her room for the one day...no probs

Every time my mom has flown down south there has been a bride, and they always hang them in the front cupboard.  Just be really nice and smiley and suck up to them, if you're mean I bet they won't, hahaha.

I was advised by the wedding shop to pack the dress shortly before the flight, that was its not in your baggage for longer than it needs to be. Apparently some airlines will hang it up at the front for you, but im flying with Thomson and they say it has to be packed into hand luggage or put in your suitcase. I am hoping to fit it into my hand luggage just so that it is close by me, but i am worried it will be abit tight getting it in. Not sure if my hotel are able to press the dress when i arrive either, i thought maybe hang it in a bath room and then heat and steam should sort it out....not sure if that will actually work though.

I haven't started looking for a wedding dress yet, but would ideally like a dress that won't wrinkle easily if packed in a carry-on luggage. What's the best type of dress material to consider? Thanks for any help.

I believe chiffon and satin are good options.  But I think if you're going for a light flowing dress, whatever the material it will pack easily in a carry on if thats what you want.

Thank you RoyalBride610! Yes, I'm probably going with a light flowing dress since it'll be so hot in Jamaica.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
