    Carry it on, amazon.com sells cheap black formal length travel bags that you can put on top of whatever it is in for extra protection, I have that and a breathable gown bag.

        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!

                I plan on carrying mine on as well and asking the flight attendants to hand it in their closet.

                  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.

                    I'm bringing my dress with me on the plane. Not leaving it to chance...I'm planning on asking the flight crew to store in the closet as well.

                      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!
