Hello everyone, I am highjacking this original posting to explain that I merged all the threads that I could find related to this topic. Please keep all your questions/concerns in THIS thread and DO NOT start a new one. This will make it easier for future brides to find all the information that they need in one particular thread.

I would vote that the purse "doesn't count" - I'm pretty sure I carried all that on. Plus, when you are the bride, 99% of people treat you better.

No problem. I carried a really large purse and my wedding dress, hubby carried 2 carry on bags. Alaska Air says purses don't count either, they are considered "personal items" that don't factor in the carry on allowance. You do get a lot of attention with that dress bag at airports, it's cool.

 

They let me hang my dress in the first class closet, made an announcement to the whole plane, and gave us champagne - woohoo! One flight attendant told us twice he's seen brides get off and actually forget the dress. Can you imagine??

That's too funny because there sure is extra space in that bag!

technically it's one carry on item, plus a personal item. but really, it all depends on your gate agent and flight attendant! but like others have suggested, just throw it in your garment bag while you walk past the person. there's a 99.9% chance you'll be just fine!

Did you guys have to notify the airline before somehow about the dress? Did any of you have another person, like say your mom, bring the dress, and if so how did that work?

 

Thanks!

I have always been told that purses do not count. When I was a BM last year at a wedding in the DR, I carried on my purse, BM dress in a garmet bag and a whellie carry on case. No one even looked at me strange, so I do not think its a problem at all. Your Travel Agent should be able to tell you though, or call the airline, they will tell you. Most actually have luggage allowances on their website.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
