Travelling With a Wedding Dress?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married at the Grand Oasis Marien, DR in April and my fiance is worried about her wedding dress arriving wrinkled. How have you prevented it being crushed? Should we have it pressed before we leave? The resort isn't able to do it at their laundry. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated, especially by my fiance! Thanks! :-)

I plan on carrying my dress as a carry-on for my flight. From what I've read on my airlines website (and talking to their CSR's), they're more than happy to hang it somewhere so that it doesn't get wrinkled.

 

If the dress needs steamed or pressed, be sure to do it before if the resort doesn't have the resources to do it for you!

I've heard some airlines have a place to hang it for you, but not to count on it because sometimes they wont even if they've agreed to it prior. I'm having my dress steamed before I go and I'm just going to nicely fold it in half and put it in the above carry on area ontop of the luggage so it doesn't get squished. Then when we arrive I'm going to hang it in the bathroom and crank the hot water and do my own kind of steaming to get any wrinkles out of it from the flight.  The lady at the dress shop told me that was the best way to go because you can't always count on the airline keeping it hung up for you. It also kind of depends on the material of the dress and if it wrinkles easily or not....hope that helps a little bit.

This is a great idea. I'm planning to carry on, but I was worried the airline would decide not to hang it up for me when I get there.
