    I was just wondering how you ladies are planning to get/got your dress to your location. I am planning to carry it on the plane with the hopes that they will have somewhere to hang it up. I guess if all else fails, I could lay it across the overhead compartment. I just hope it fits ok, because it is a slim A line dress.

    Thanks for any input. :)

      Sorry, my computer was having trouble last night and I didn't think it posted. Sorry to post the same question.

        Well...perhaps my idea is not the best way to go, but I am planning on having the dress, which is also a reasonably slim A-line, pressed at the dry cleaner's at home and asking them to fold and package the dress in such a way to make it fit in my carry-on luggage! The way I see it, it won't get anymore wrinkled in the suitcase than if it gets smushed by accident in an overhead compartment. Plus, I don't want to bank on the airline having somewhere to hang it, because if that were my primary plan, naturally they wouldn't! My sis is bringing along her "Steam Buddy" (a great little investment), so as soon as we get there, we plan to take the dress out of the bag to hang for a few days and then be steamed (in her room away from the FI!)

        I have read horror stories of other brides having their dresses sent out to be steamed/pressed at their resort, and then having to wait (sometimes down to the wire!) to get their dress back just minutes before the ceremony! My paranoia would never allow me to relinquish my dress to strangers...so I hope my idea pans out ok!

        Hope that helps...or at least you got a chuckle out of my craziness!

          I don't have the time to do a search for you but there are multiple threads on this very topic with some good ideas. The search function is at the top of your screen above where it says 'welcome'.
