    They let me lay it flat in one of the overhead compartments in first class, even though we were stuck in 'steerage' :) - my mom had been upgraded to first class, so as a worst case scenario we had already decided that we would have had her take it on as her carry-on item.

     

    There were 2 other brides on the flight and I shared the compartment with one of them, while the other bride hung her dress upright in the closet.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the update!

        Oh just to add, although there is a 'closet' it is pretty short, so you may want to go with laying it down flat in the overhead compartment.

        In any case, as part of our wedding package the resort pressed both my dress and my fiance's suit.

                Im getting married in Jamaica in November.  Should you definitely carry-on your wedding dress?  Or is there any good way to safely pack it in your luggage?

                  You definitely need to carry your wedding dress in a garment bag or pack it in your carry-on luggage (not your checked-in luggage). Also, remember to turn your dress inside out so that it doesn't get dirtied by the TSA handlers at the security checkpoint!
