I'll share with you the packing list that we give to our clients as well so you can cross reference!

             

            Happy Planning!

             

            Carry-on items

            • Wedding dress. Don't trust your dress to checked luggage. Most airplanes have coat closets and will allow travelers to hang garment bags. Call ahead, let them know you will be bringing a dress and ask if the airline will let you hang your dress in the closet
            • Groom’s wedding outfit (tux, suit, shorts, etc.)
            • All original and notarized documents--including air tickets, birth certificates, passports, hotel reservation confirmation, medical/trip insurance, etc.

              Wow this list is great. I travel at least two times a year and I love the prepacking anxiety but this list is more organized than mine. Def will be printing before I lose it
