How to transport your wedding dress?

Recommended Posts

I have read a few ways to transport your dress. The one way is to ask the air line to put it aside in like a private closet. The only thing is I do not want to dry clean my dress at the resort I do not trust it will be okay. Any one else know of how they are transporting their dress???? Has anyone contacted the air line they have booked with too find out if they do have somewhere they could keep it without it getting bunched up or ruined?

There have been a couple threads on this topic and it seems like all the brides carry it on with them and ask to hang in closet. if the closet is full they store them in overhead bins. Hopefully, your resort will steam your dress when you arrive.

Yah I know  I read a review where a bride had her steam cleaned at the resort and all of her ruching was screwed up on her dress. It freaked me out because if they run it that's all you got.

That's all I've heard as well.  And if those are the only choices, I'd say try to get it in the closet (I'm sure it will come out less wrinkled then if you were to have it put in the overhead bins).  From experience traveling with a stroller, make sure that you get to the airport in plenty enough time and let the associates at your flights terminal know that you have a wedding dress that you would like to store in one of their closets if possible.  Be courteous and I'm sure they will take it on for you before they start boarding people or make sure they have adequate room for you in one of the closets (or they may even have a hook they can hang it on somewhere up front). Whatever you do just make sure you let them know BEFORE they start boarding and I'm sure they will try and do everything they can to accomodate your needs :) ...I know its different from a stroller, but I didn't check my daughters stroller, just asked politely if they could accomodate it somewhere on board (before they started boarding) and they did (even with 2 other carry-ons). It stayed up front (not in overhead) and was up front ready for me to take when I got off the plane.  I'm not sure if this is a common practice, but its worth a shot!

I agree with the posts below, I will add that when I flew to a friends wedding, the flight attendants were happy to accomodate.  Depending on how big the overhead bins are (usually bigger on charters) there is plenty of room to lay the dress flat unless its really full/lots of crinoline. That is what my friend did and her dress didnt require steaming once we arrived. She hung it right away. 

 

I travel a tonne for work and I have found the trick with airlines is to always be courteous and never seem whiny! they deal with some pretty annoying people so I have always found that if you brighten their day they are happy to accommodate!

I was in Cuba over New Years and saw someone travelling with her dress, there and back, she carried it on, it looked like no big deal. I assume the flight attendants stored it for her. To be honest, that is the least of  my worries right now, but I am probably behind most of you with the planning...

Mine was stored in the first class closet one leg of the journey but on the second leg, it was folded in the coat closet.  We were travelling along with all the 10/10/10 brides and had 3 on one flight and 4 or 5 on the second.  The flight attendants were happy to assist but were running out of room.  I had mine steamed at the resort and it was perfect.  I put it a checked bag that had my oot bags and fillers for the trip home and was thrilled not to carry around 2 dresses (wedding and ttd, in one dress bag).

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
