How was your experience with the airlines letting you carry-on the dress? Foster Stephens is the company that most dry cleaners purchase their wedding dress preservation boxes. Let me know. Thanks!
I traveled with my dress as my carry-on in the regular garment bag that I got when I bought my dress. I had a small puddle jumper that was not very full so I just laid it out in the overhead bin, and in my other flight my dress flew first class even though I didn't. They did let me preboard and then I stacked my dress on another bride's dress who was flying first class. The attendants are usually good with finding a place for it where it won't get destroyed by people shoving their luggage into the overhead bins.
