Hi Selina, 

 

I spoke to Thomas Cook and they said that as I have not booked my wedding with them I cannot have the extra luggage allowance so I guess I am stuck with what I have got. I was considering taking it to another level, seems a bit cheeky really - all my party have booked holidays with them - totalling £25k - yet they cant give us some extra luggage allowance! Stupid! 

 

I am still going to try and take it on the plane with me I don't see how they can stop me really as long as I have it in the right size case, which I know you can buy online. 

 

Don't worry about your dress if you look at all the pictures online very few people actually choose a 'destination' wedding dress and they all look perfectly happy to me!!!!

They have told me that there Terms and Conditions state that you cant carry your dress on as hand luggage either.  My dress is quite big and dont think i will fit it in a box with the dimensions of there hand luggage as they are soooooo small.

 

Ordering my dress tomorrow so excited.

 

Glad I am not the only one ordering a non destion wedding dress as one shop really had me worrying about it.  They told me if I didnt buy a destionation wedding dress I would not look happy in my wedding photos as I would be to hot the cheek.

 

xx

Hi Carrie keep me posted on how it goes taking your dress on board with you as your wedding is not far away now :-)  I was suprised Thomas Cook said I could have the extra luggage allowance as I have not booked my wedding with them either.  I am going to save the email they have sent me too.

 

Jenna I am about to order my wedding dress today so 13 months in advance planning to get my bridesmaid dresses early next year as one of my bridesmaids is pregnant at the mo.

We've got 37 booked so far and another 4 are still deciding.. All 37 of us have booked together so it was crazy booking for everyone and the total.. dizzy.gif How many of you got going? Yes ive always loved the colour lemon for my bridesmaid.. And I think lemon and white will look so fresh on the beach but ive just seen this watermelon colour and wow, its lush! So ive not 100% decided yet.. What are your colours? Are you taking much with u? Ive been excited buying loads of stuff to take already and I keep forgetting I gotta lug all the all the way to mexico! lol xxxx
