I just found one online for those girls that need one and it's $8:

I am flying American Airlines to Jamaica!  I had not even thought about how to bring my dress until I recently started shopping for a second dress!  How far ahead did you call, and was there an additional carry on fee?

Did everyone use their dress as their one carry-on bag? Or did the airlines allow you to bring it in addition to your carry-on? We will be scuba diving the week of our wedding so it is a must that we hand carry our regulators on the plane. We are also flying Thanksgiving week, so I am sure the planes will be full.

We're flying American too. I was originally going to splurge on first class when booking our tickets, but decided to wait and see if I can get an upgrade just before. Maybe now I'll try the dress method and hope our flight isn't full and the flight attendants are nice!

We are flying Delta and I bought the Wally Bags dress bag for my dress and his suit (it is a really roomy bag!).  I'm hoping it's not an issue to carry on....I guess we'll see!

We full Frontier Airlines and my dresses were my carry-on.  They just put it in an overhead compartment and I didn't have any issues.  My dress wasn't huge or poofy or anything though so it fit in an overhead compartment.
