Moral of the story....let them know WAY beforehand and demand that it goes in the closet before boarding!

If it ends up in an overhead bin I would recruit a flight attendant to make sure nobody does what that guy above did. Also, mine was slightly wrinkled but with the humdity in PV in June the wrinkles fell right out...lol

My mom took it for me. She had the airlines put it in the closet at the front of the plane. They actually offered to do it. The problem remember to get it. hahahaha Mine was a shealth style so not bulky. We had no issue with getting it on the plane or through customs. I hung it on the door and let it fall out on its own. Depending upon where you will marry the sand is a hard place to walk through. I actually brought another dress to change into after the pics so I could enjoy walking around. My dress was so dirty at the bottom. Then I did a trash the dress photo shoot and it actually cleaned it up some. hahaha

Carry-on luggage will be limited to one piece plus one of the following:
a purse, briefcase, or laptop computer for all flights. A carry-on
piece can have a total linear measurement of up to 45 inches. On all
Northwest jet aircraft, a closet is available in the cabin of the
aircraft to store some items. This closet is relatively small, it is
not full length and a large wedding gown would be compressed in the
closet. The space for this closet is available on a first-come,
first-served basis. Therefore, kindly explain to the agent at your
departure gate the need for you to store your wedding dress on board the
aircraft. If space is available, we will be happy to accommodate your
Hope this helps a little!

I'm scared because I'm flying spring break (so so stupid!) and I doubt they will be as accomodating. We shall see, but my dress WILL NOT be checked. I'll wear it before that happens.
