Traveling with a wedding dress

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I am getting married on June 12, 2012 at Sandal's Grande Antigua.  I was wondering if anyone has tips on traveling with a wedding dress?  I really don't want to check my dress and leave it to the mercy of the airline lol.  I was hoping that there is somewhere on the plane that I could hang my dress and take it on and off with me.  Also, we have to have our photography and wedding stuff paid for in the next couple of weeks.  We haven't figured out which photography package to use because we are already spending so much and their photo packages are very pricey.  Is it better to just do something like the al a carte option of 18 5x7 or to get an actual photo package?  Do the photographers make it worth the money you spend to get a photo package?  Right now we are getting married on the beach because I've always dreamed of getting married on the beach.  I would hate to have to switch locations because they don't have a private beach for their guests.  Has anyone gotten married on the beach there recently, or even last June around 4 PM? Was the beach overly crowded?  Is it worth getting married on the beach?  Is it hard to switch locations once you get there, in case we decided to move the wedding?


Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you,

Brittany, Congratulations!!

We are getting married there a week from today. We are also planning on doing the beach but at 9am. Ebony is our WC and has been great! She said that we can change easily once we get there. Also we decided to not choose a package until we have seen the pictures. And today last minute I decided to go for the video and she added it on with no problem! I bought my wedding gown in Ohio and brought it to Texas with me on the plane with no problems as well, I think it may have been stashed in a overhead bin, but it was fine. I will let you know how it goes once we get back. Let me know if you have any other questions! I am so excited!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
