Me too! People have been asking me too, I wasn't really sure

I just called Southwest Airlines and they told me they do not allow wedding gowns to be carried on! Now I have to find another airline to travel with since I don't want to risk having it taken away and checked.

@@Anani there is a bag called the Wally 66 ( or wally 60) that some of the brides on here rave about that can be brought on the plan in the overhead bin and it has special foam stoppers in the suitcase so that the dress won't wrinkle. That's waht I am going to use. If I can hang the dress even better but I'm bringing the wally 60 as a carry on anyway with my fiances suit in it.


 


Here is the link. You can look at the different types of options they have. Also type this into the search box on the forums and you will see reviews from some of the other brides. It got GREAT reviews.

Air Transat was fantastic and even allowed the bridesmaids to carry on their dresses.

We travelled with Sunwing with no problems, they have a special overhead bin specifically for wedding dresses, it's even labelled in big red letters! I'm sure airlines get wedding dresses as carry on all the time!

With any airline I have ever flown no, your purse does not count as carry on. But I would check to be sure if you're concerned, you never know, airlines are changing their rules all the time!

Thank you all for the info! I was a little worried about having to carry-on my dress but am feeling a little better about it now. :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
