Dress through security?
Posted 26 October 2008 - 08:26 PM
I'm feeling good so far...I think I will feel more at peace when were actually on the plane. I spent the entire day packing and we are going with 4 suitcases (two with just wedding stuff and 2 with our personal stuff) and two hanging bags (the dress and my FI's suit). I know that we are able to put the hanging bags in the first class closet....but I'm concerned about going through security...how do you get through security with your dress? I really dont want to put it on the belt and have it go through the machine. I'm thinking they can do the hand wand... just curious what other people did. Any advice would be awesome.

I ended up packaging mine the same way it was sent to me- It only takes up half of one of the bags I will be bringing on the plane with me.
As far as a bigger dress goes- I think a garmet bag would be counted as one of your carry ons. I know that on most airplanes, you are allowed one carry on, and one personal item (purse, laptop bag etc.) I think if you were to link them and carry them together, they probably wouldn't count it as two (atleast I dont think- I could be wrong..) I would call someone from the airline, and ask your coordinator about it to be sure. (I would cry if anything ended up getting checked on my trip)
Perhaps you could bring a very large purse? (I'm planning on doing this too) If you look at some purses, they are big enough to qualify as luggage! (opinion)I have a large pink purse that I'll be bringing on with me (first almost all of my cloths) and a carry on black bag with my wedding stuff in it.
Hope this helps-
I was wondering about this too. Does the dress and suit count as 2 separate carryons?

I am flying Air Canada and their website states that the wedding dress is in addition to your carry on. As for the closet to hang it in, or the overhead bin -- I think we will have to wait and see what the plane is like when we board. I am planning to hang it in the humidity and/or iron it, so I won't be disappointed if it's in an overhead bin.
I plan to bring everything my family is wearing to the wedding in our carry ons, including our swimsuits. We have the 2 of us and my 2 kids, so alot of extra bags. As well, my BM husband never uses a carry on so we get an extra bag there!!!
Under the plane we get 4 suitcases so we should be ok. Makes me nervous to put anything for the wedding in checked baggage but the reality of it is, it will have too!
