Traveling With Dress

Recommended Posts

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!

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!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
