    I carried mine on with American and had no issues. The lady at the check in gave me a hard time as my dress was HUGE! but I told her I would check it if the gate people made me but not going to before that. There were 2 wedding dresses on my plane, mine went in the closet (still has to fold up a bit) and they hung hers on the wall between first class and coach. They were very nice about it.

          That is good to know because we are flying Continental too!

            About the search I did search but for some reason it was not finding anything! Could have been the operator though :)

              We flew Continental to Cancun to be married in Secrets Maroma. I folded my Jessie McClintock gown into my carry on. I would not let my dress leave my sight. Everything can be bought in Mexico, etc. except the gown you searched for everywhere, so guard it with your life! HA! My wedding package included pressing of my gown. It looked perfect on the big day! So I guess it depends how big your gown is. Good luck! P.S.-Continental is very accomodating in all kinds of ways since I have been flying with them for years. Just call ahead!

              I carried mine on plus two carry-ons in addition. Oops, I meant ONE carry-on and a personal item

              We flew American Airlines and the steward guy totally rocked. He even offered us a bottle of champagne but I can't drink so we had to forego. Most airlines are really understanding and everyone thinks it's really cool!

                We are flying American, and I am definitely going to carry my dress on with me. My mom seems to think we may even get a seat upgrade. That would be an Awesome bonus!
