    Maybe if you do put it in the closet you sit in the front so that you can get to it before any one else!!!! :)

      I am going to have to have my dress steamed by the resort once we rrive anyway ... so I guess it's not such a big deal if it has to go in an overhead bin. But, I've only heard good things from other former bride friends who say they were treated like Queens and moved to First Class (space available, etc. We are likely flying US Airways out of Charlotte (I'd rather drive an hour for a non-stop flight than risk having ANY luggage get lost) ... since we are bringing so much with us (flowers, centerpieces, OOT bags, etc).

      Thanks for this thread!!!

          Lose the dress when it's in the closet? Is it like a magic trick? Perhaps there is a secret hatch which will drop the dress from 5,000 miles in the air. "It's raining brides, halleluiah, it's raining brides."

            yeah!!! I think she meant like, other people took your items instead of hers... who knows... Maybe the airline did secretly pay her!!!

              For those who carried on their dresses, did you buy a dress/garmet bag? If so, where did you get it?

                I've never heard of anyone ever buying an extra ticket just for their dress. That is beyond excessive! She definitely had to be getting commission from the airline companies! lol...

                Good to hear as we're flying America as well. Phew!

                  If you call they'll say it's on a space available basis, but if the closets are full you can still carry it on, you'll just have to lay it flat in the overhead which isn't a big problem.
                  This makes me feel better. I think we are going through Alaska.

                  Thanks for all the feedback girls. I just want to know what to expect!
