Transporting Wedding Dress

Recommended Posts

Did everyone get their dress bag when they bought their dress? I bought mine on e-bay and it came from a bridal salon but in a clear bag (like they have in store)... uh, that wasn't soo good for hiding from the world. I bought a bag online, but it's really thin, almost paper-like. Probably more for storage than travelling..

 

Any suggestions?

I would just go to a bridal salon and offer to pay for one of theirs. Also, try some retailers in a mall near you. When I worked in retail, we always had people coming in to ask if we had any bags for dresses (we never charged) and we always had a lot because of grad/prom season. I would just hit the more hit-end retail stores that would have better quality, zip-up bags.

I paid $10 for mine at David's Bridal.

That bag should be fine. It will be with you at all times. I had a pretty thin bag as well.

I actually had two bags - one came from the designer & the other from the bridal salon. I ended up giving the designer's bag to my MOH to carry her dress. The salons bag was plastic & for the most part worked out well - but by the return trip I got a rip in the bottom of the bag from dragging it thru the airport.

I double-bagged everything. I had a clear plastic bag that my TTD dress came from, and then a white more traditional wedding dress bag (but it wasn't very thick) that my real dress came in. I did get a small tear in the outside bag during travel, so I was glad I'd double bagged. I also covered everything under both layers with a white trash bag that I slipped over the hangers on the top, just to be safe as there is a small gap where the hangers go through the bag.

I got my bad from David's also... Great tip about double bagging though.

It just made the dress bag unbelievably heavy- but just keep that in mind if you find some clothes you just can't fit into your suitcase! lol

I'm going to try this trick as well ... but OMG I can already envision how friggin HEAVY its going to be ... and FI isn't so careful with that sort of stuff so I'll be the one lugging it through the airport, along with my other carry-on. girl_werewolf.gif Tom will likely only have one suitcase ... but he's wearing his dress blues for the ceremony and then changing into khakis and a Guayabera (sp?) shirt for the reception ... so we'll have that, my real and TTD dresses (both HEAVY!) and any other sundresses etc I can't get into my suitcase. lol.

My arm hurts just THINKING about carrying this through the airport. And I'm DEFINITELY double -- if not quadruple (hehe) bagging...smile105.gif
