      People are always willing to bend over backwards for brides!!  I would ask the flight attendants if they have a personal closet or overhead bin.  If not, make it known that you're getting married and I've read that another bride got her own overhead bin because people were willing to help and make room for "the dress"!!!!  Good luck!

      Perfectly said.  People will bend over backwards for you.  The flight attendants will find a way to accommodate your gown.  You should purchase a heavy duty garment bag for it just in case.

      We flew to Jamaica with Air Transat and I had my dress in the white cloth bag provided by Davids. There were 2 other brides on our flight! There are not closets but what I did was basically take over an overhead bin. Between my husband's carry on and my dress, we took the bin and I just stood guard to make sure no one tried to add anything. My dress was very simple chiffon and I just folded it in half once then hung it when we arrived and it worked out great.


      A little tip ladies as well. Take your dress out of the bag a full day or 2 before your wedding and hang it in the bathroom, then turn on the shower. It works like a charm for letting out any small creases!


      Good luck to everyone!

      I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

      I'm considering splurging for 1st class tickets to avoid having to stuff my dress into an overhead bin =/


      Every time I've flown Boston to Cancun, the flight has been full. I've seen fights over overhead storage space and I've even seen passengers being forced to check their carry-on, even if it's within the size limits. That is NOT how I want to start my wedding trip.

      Anyone had any experience with Frontier?  Wondering how they handle wedding dresses.
