    Has anyone heard of these?  Is anyone planning on using this?

     

    I was talking to a family friend who is a flight attendant and she was telling me that closet space for those not flying first class is pretty much non-existent and even the space for first class is very limited, so now I'm thinking about different options to carry on my dress.

      I have never heard of those.  I just plan on laying my dress on top of the stuff in the overhead bins.  Lots of brides have done this and it worked well.

        I also plan n laying it on top of the luggage in the overhead bins.  If you are travelling with friends and family get you, FI and them to basically take over a bin and lay your dress in that one, shut it so that no one else tried to stuff more into it and you are good to go :)

              TRUST ME YOU WANT TO CARRY IT ON!!!!!! Gawd forbid your luggage gets LOST, or is DELAYED getting to your destination at LEAST you will have your dress!!!!!!!  Nothing could turn a bride BRIDEZILLA faster then an MIA wedding gown.  I think we will carry FIs suit on as well just to be safe!!!!!!!

               

              I even carried on my BM dress for my friends wedding last weekend just to be safe!!!!!

                I 100% agree with tori, I ve had my luggage totally lost one time.....and there is no way i want to chance that with my wedding/TTD/reception dress and FI clothes. I would def be carrying it on with you and this way you know its with you and safe>

                 

                PLUS>>>>> Ive seen those guys doing the luggage, they are not light with the hands

                  What about shipping it to the resort and insuring it:?

                    I would just make sure your resort accepts shipments, I know a few brides had talked about shipping their decor down but the resort would not receive it as they have too many weddings going on they do not have enough space to store everything (which I understand, some brides get carried away!).

                     

                    I would still be too nervous to ship my dress because even insured say it goes missing or doesn't make it, well ok you have the money but you are getting married without a dress!  How many stop overs do you have?  Do you change planes every time?  I don't plan on having a ton of other carry on (I usually only fly with my purse :) so the dress bag will not be the end of the world for me, but I am also on a direct flight......
