Tips for travelling with your gown :)

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I read a story that was posted on here (not one of our brides though) where she packed her dress in her suitcase...her luggage was lost...when it was finally found, the dress had been stolen from the garment bag from inside the luggage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HORRIFYING!!! I say...GIRLS, BRING THE DRESS AS A CARRY ON!!!! So maybe there will be a little arguing at the airport...SO WHAT!! I rather get into a little fight with the airline desk person than risk having my dress lost or stolen!! Our dresses are IMPORTANT :)

So, they let me do it, stating I had to work out the logistics of the dress once I was on the plane. So, while we were waiting our 4 hour delay (yes, that's right 4 HOURS) a random girl walked up to me and was like: "Is that your wedding dress?" And I told her it was and she got a bit irked as she was ALSO getting married but she called ahead to the airline before showing up at the airport and they told her she wasn't allowed to have it as carry-on so she had to stuff her dress in a suitcase and check it!! I tried not to look smug, and I really did feel bad for her because the dress must have been SO wrinkled when she took it out of the suitcase!

In my opinion: Show up with your dress in a dress bag as carry-on. They'll find room for it. Even though we were on a small plane (with no room to hang the dress) the flight attendants were REALLY sweet and made sure the dress was laying on top of the luggage stored in the overhead compartment (the compartment was the perfect length!) and they routinely checked on it after turbulence and after landing. :)
Thanks for the info! I'm also flying CanJet from Montreal.
I will definitely show up with my dress as carry-on.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
