    I am traveling to Anna Maria Island from Kentukcy for my wedding in October, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my dress down there with me.

      are you flying or driving down if you are flying, most airlines will let you hang the dress in the first class closet or just put in nicely folded in half in an overhead :o)

          I have two dresses - my DRESS, and my TTD. I was going to put them both in the same back and just carry on and hope for the best. I'm flying Mexicana, and from what I understand, there is no closet.

          I was planning on folding them in half and laying them over the top of an overhead bin - and keeping an eye on it like a hawk to keep anyone else from touching it. But...if it gets wrinkled, I'll just spend the extra money to get it steamed...I'm kind of figuring I'm going to have to do that anyways!

            Make sure that you carry it on with you....don't let them check it, and don't mail it. I've heard a lot of girls say that folding it in half (or even rolling it up) and putting it in the overhead (you can put it on top of luggage if needed) is better than hanging it in the closet because the closets are short and the bottom of your dress gets scrunched a wrinkly. You can always steam it when you get there if it does get wrinkled. A good way to do that is to hang it on the back of the bathroom door right away and run the shower at it's hottest temp...the steam from the shower should get the wrinkles out. If that's not an option you can either buy a travel steamer or a lot of hotels will steam your dress for you for a fee. If all else fails, use the hotel iron on a low setting with a towel between the dress and the iron! Good luck!
