It is best to take the garment bag that the dress came with, put it
inside of a standard luggage garment bag, fold the garment bag in half
and place it in the overhead bin. This causes the least amount of
wrinkling especially through the bodice and the bottom where steaming is
usually most needed. Any minor wrinkles that folding may cause will
usually "press themselves out" if you hang it up as soon as you reach
your destination. The maximum size of a garment bag that will fit in the
overhead bin is 45 inches. I would suggest transporting your dress this

We're flying US Airways in August. I was also told that you can prepay for check in luggage. Its $15 per bag now if you pre pay on the airline site or $20 after
July 9th and $25 at the airport.
Some girls have said to also do this and that it really depends on the flight attendants if they would hang your garment bag up for you. When we went to the Dominican Republic, they accomidated the in flight brides. Guess it probably depends on their moods. huh
I'll have to purchase a garment bag of that size. The only one i have is the one from David's Bridal with the dress.

Also, not sure if this is normal, but we did not have to pay to check any luggage on the way home from JA. Not sure if its just going and not coming, or if they were just behind.

Regarding checking the dress...I would never check the dress...there are so many stories of garment bags coming without the wedding dress in them. It seems US Airways is trying to make it so you can bring it on the plane vice checking it. When we fly to Italy next year, that dress is coming on board with me.

Here are my points:
1. You may want to invest in a higher quality bag.
2. My dress didn't need to be steamed or anything. That Caribbean humidity took care of those wrinkles in no time at all.
