      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.

          Thanks for all your stories! This is a helpful forum, has anyone traveled with AeroMexico? I wonder what their policy is...

          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!

            Does your purse count as carry on? I would want a small carry on luggage the dress and purse would that be two or three items?

            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. :)
