Wedding Dress Travel Box

Recommended Posts

Good day ladies!!

 

Congrats to all of you. Regarding the storage bin, it is only available when you're in the first class section. However, if you're booking through a TA, they should normally offer to the futur bride and groom FREE upgrade to first class round trip since you're booking a group vacation. I ahve a group of 29 people and was offered by Sunwing this upgrade among other thing (11th persons gets a free ticket, seat reservation so the group sits in the same area, bride and groom allowed up to 30kg for our bagage instead of 20kg)

The TA gets approx 25-50$ per ticket sold, so bargain what you want and need!!

 

Hope this helps!

This is one of my biggest fears! I spent a good 3 weeks researching options. Here's what I found: Shipping it: Chances are, if your on this site, your getting married in an international location. If that's the case, you may have to ship your dress as far out as a month before the wedding! You can get insurance but you have to understand that that means if they lose your dress, you'll get your money back BUT notching dress! Imagine not having your dress for you weekly?!? Plus it cost several hundred dollars. No thanks. Checking it: You can get either a box for your dress or most wedding salons will offer to pack it in a suitcase for you. But like another bride mentioned, you see how those guys handle luggage and chances are you or someone you know has had their luggage lost on an international flight. Plus, can you imagine how wrinkled your dress you be after that flight? Again... No Thanks! Carrying it on: Most airlines will accommodate a wedding gown in the overhead bin. However, if your dress has a very full skirt, it might now fit. Now most planes have a pilot's closet. I suggest buying a few books of godiva chocolates and bribing the crew (there's usually 2 pilots and 1-5 crew). That way if the dress doesn't fit in the overhead bin, they'll be more likely to offer that area. Another (often overlooked) option: Buying your dress a seat!!! You can buy your dress a one way ticket to ensure it will fit on board. I'm considering using my miles for this. I'm not getting a round trip ticket because I can cramp the dress into one of the suitcases that had our OOT bag stuffings. Just saying ;)
