Traveling With Dress

Recommended Posts

Did anyone order the light pink breathable garment bag off ebay? Is it see-through at all? I don't want my fiance to even get a hint of what my dress will look like!

Lol I had a dream I got to Cuba, was having a blast until I realized I FORGOT my dress...oh my, I am not letting it out of my sight, its for sure getting carried on! That would be terrible if it didn't show up to your resort...what would you do?? In my dream I got married in a white bathing suit...pretty bad!

The garment bag that the dress shop provides should be good enough. That is what I used. And I also carried mine onto the plane. We had regular coach seats but I asked if they could store my dress in the captain's closet or the first class closet and they were able to. As you can see in my siggy, my dress was super poofy with an extra crinoline underneath and they still let me carry it onto the plane. It was like carrying around 30lbs, constantly having to keep my arm in the air so the dress didn't drag. Definitely tough!

 

We also carried on DH's tux as well. And my MOH was also on our flight so they let her carry her dress and hung it with my dress on the plane. Once we arrived in Paris (our layover), we had to switch to a smaller puddle jumper. They didn't have a large captain's closet, but they let us lay the dress flat in the luggage bins above the seat. It took the space of 2 bins, but they were very understanding since it was a wedding dress.

Just as a heads up to all the future brides out there. I brought my dress as a carry-on and had no trouble with bringing it on the plane. However, the moment I walked on the plane, I had a flight attendant tell me straight away that they could not accommodate me with putting the dress in the captain's closet (we flew first class). They actually didn't have one that was accessible outside of the cockpit. With that being said, I took a charter flight so it probably depends on which airline you are traveling with. Just be prepared that you "might" have to store it in the overhead storage. My dress made the trip just fine but it was pretty wrinkled. I just put it in the bathroom, threw the shower on to hot and steamed it that way. Worked out perfectly fine!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
