How are you getting your dress to your DW?

Recommended Posts

I had planned to take my wedding dress on the plane as my carry on, but the airlines (Delta) said that they might take it from me when I get on board. How are you getting your dress there?

If  your dress exceeds the maximum carry on allowance they can "ask" you to check it.  Most bridal shops are aware of the difficulties and can pack your dress to fit in a carry on bag. If you just have your dress in a garment bag and it is super big you might have trouble. Try to be among the first to board so that there might be more room to store your dress. I plan on having my dress steamed at the resort, so it will be packed into a tiny package for carry on.

As of now, I'm planning on carrying it on in the garment bag that came with the dress.  Due to the volume of the skirt with the pickups and such, it can't really squeeze it into a small bag.  I do however plan on calling my airline a month or so ahead of time to see if i'll be able to arrange to hang it somewhere on the plane if I carry it on.

I'm carrying my dress on and I dare them to try and take it away from me!  I'll sit with it on my lap if I have to but I am definitely not going to check it.  It's small enough where I can place it in an overhead compartment on top of our suitcases.

 

I read somewhere that you should try and board first and the flight attendants might offer to put your dress in the first class closet.  And of course, be super friendly to all the airline staff at check-in and at the gate so they don't try to make you check it.

I have the major problem with my dress. It is now in Poland - from there I need to take it to London, then few days later it's travelling with me to Maine, and for the wedding we are flying to St. Thomas in USVI. I decided to keep it in my carry on all the time - that's why I bought the special travel box for travelling with the dress. It was £45 and I got it in London http://www.emptybox.co.uk/

I just got it today and the box seems really solid and it's so pretty:)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
