    Hey everyone!  Just wondering if anyone has flown Sun Country?  If so how did you get your dress there?  I will carry it on, but their guidelines state that it must fit carry on size.  I really dont want to fold it up, but I may have to.

    Call your airlines. They are not allowed to state on their website that bridal gowns go in the captains closet, but they do.

    It will be considered your carry on. I have never heard anyone not being able to put their wedding gown in captains closet. Pretty common.

    Some airliners don't have closets but definitely call and find out. The closet on our plane was short so even though it was hung up the train was bunched up the whole way. My friend brought a travel steamer for us that came in super handy. I was hoping humidity would work but I think Our rooms were just to chilled From the AC. The steamer worked like a charm.

    No one questioned me having a dress as an additional carry on and I think most airlines would be the same. Although my airlines website stated the same about it being carry on size. I feel strongly this will be a non issue.

    I agree with @calgarybride2015 & @LisaAnthonyPoppy - my mom (in her excitement) called SouthWest airlines and they don't have a closet.  They told her dresses have to go in an overhead if available.

      I did a carry on for mine.  Unfortunately I had to scrunch it up but it didnt wrinkle due to the fabric.  I would give a call to the airline and see what they say.

          I went with sun country last month, and yes unfortunately I did have to pack my dress in my carry-on. It actually wasn't a big deal, as soon as I got checked into our hotel I took it out and the humidity got the wrinkles out.

          Hi All - 

           

          I flew United and carried my dress. Unfortunately, the flight attendants were nasty and made me put it in overhead.  My new hubby was sweet and thankfully had the foresight to pay to pre-board so we took up an overhead compartment just for his tux and my dress which was bulky.  Once at the resort, we had them both steamed the day before the wedding.

          I wasn't aware of airplanes closets.

          I folded mine with curved creases to avoid harsh wrinkles. It fitted nicely into a hard shell carry-on suitcase with only the dress, shoes, jewelry inside.  Arriving at the hotel I used the steamer setting on the iron to removed some minor wrinkles. It got further steam cleaned when it got stored by our wedding co-coordinator.

           
          :) Keep the iron at least one inch away from the fabric if you are using it to steam.
