Flying Jet Blue with wedding dress

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I've read that no one has had any issues flying with their dress and that generally flight attendants can hang your dress somewhere during the flight.  I"m a little nervous as I just read the below on the Jet Blue website:

Wedding Attire

» Wedding Dresses, Bride's Maid Dresses, Suits and Tuxedos

Wedding Dresses, Bride's Maid Dresses, Suits and Tuxedos
Though we wish the bride and groom the best, JetBlue does not make special allowances for the transport of wedding attire. Whether it is packed in check-in baggage or a carry-on, wedding or bride's maid dresses, suits or tuxedos, would still have to meet the baggage requirements to/from specific destinations. There are no closets for hanging clothing items or garment bags on the aircraft.
Customers may wish to have wedding attire shipped separately. Information on specific shipping companies is available in the yellow pages or Internet.



Has anyone flown Jet Blue with their dress??  I'm leaving in one month and am now getting a bit nervous.


Any and ALL responses would greatly be appreciated.


Thank you!

I flew Continental. What we did was carry-on our garment bags and lay them on top of the carry-on luggage in the overhead compartment. When we flew down, our immediate family was on the same flight (8 people in total). So we were able to arrange carry-on luggage from only our own party in 1 overhead compartment and lay our garment bags over those. So we didn't bother any of the other travelers.


I have read that other girls also laid their dresses over the carry-on luggage in the overhead compartment. I can't imagine how this would be a problem, even if the carry-on luggage underneath the garment bags belong to strangers. The other travelers will all be super nice to you since you're a bride. I purposely worse a "BRIDE" tank top for the flight over, just in case the giant white garment bag didn't give it away!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
