Shipping Wedding Dress

Recommended Posts

*Definitely* bring it with you. Don't ship it ahead and don't check it with your luggage. Carry it onto the plane with you. If there is space you can hang it in the first class or captain's closet, if there is no space you can lay it across the top of the luggage in the over head bins :o)

Should I ship my dress to the resort or bring it on the flight with me? Any recommendations?
Ditto! The lady at the bridal shop was EMPHATIC about carrying the dress on the plane with you! From what I understand - airlines are usually very accomodating!

I am bringing EVERYTHING for the wedding on the plane. That includes my dress, veil tiara shoes and fiance's tux. If the luggage is lost or damaged everyting else I can live with and just buy a new bathing-suit and be happy for a few days until its found. If my wedding dress is not there for my wedding day I'm pretty sure I'll just have a hear attack.

For sure!!! We got tons of attention in the airports and on the plane. The crew even got advice for us from married passengers and announced it on the loudspeaker, plus gave us free champagne. It was sweet :o)

definately bring it with it. I just asked my florist about shippinh my flowers (silk) to the resort so I wouldn't have to bring them with me and she said she shipped flowers to a resort years ago and they never made it. She doesn't know where they ended up and she was out all the money.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
