Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

I think it's just Sunwing's way of making you feel at ease lol.

There shouldn't be any sort of program - all the airlines should allow you to have your dress hung up - they all either have closets for this on the plane or they have a hanging rack near the pilots.

 

Whichever airline you fly with - if you want to put your mind at ease, just give them a call and ask :)

I don't think that's necessarily true Deanna.  Most airlines don't let you use the closet any more.  I had to put my dress up in the overhead bin, as have a lot of ladies.  It depends on the size of the plane, the carrier, and the flight attendents working that day. 


Sometimes it's better to lay it in the overhead bins anyway.  On the flight I took last week to Mexico, the bride wanted to put it in the closet.  The closet was at most three feet tall.  Even jackets were crumpled at the bottom.  So her dress would have been complete wrinkled.  Instead, she just laid it across the suitcases in the overhead bin and it was perfect.

I don't know every airline's rules - I think the safeset thing to do is to call the airline and ask them what their policies are regarding wedding dresses.

I flew with Air Transat and they were very accomodating.

 

Calling the airline will also  help you figure out what model plane they will be using for your flight and then in that case they will know how they can accomodate you.

 

I think the only overall rule we can all follow is NEVER LET THEM CHECK YOUR DRESS IN AS LUGGAGE! lol

Some airlines have closets and some don't.. There is not much we can do. I had my dress in overhead bin for a half a trip and it was fine. It did not even get wrinkled much. Also some airlines will let you do priority boarding cause of you wedding dress :D

I'm assuming that they just created this "program" so that they can limit the number of dresses that are hanging...if there are 12 brides and only space for 6, it would definitely alleviate some drama...in my opinion anyways...

 

Even if my dress has to lay down, I'm fine with that...it'll probably get steamed at the resort anyways...
