    I’m not sure what hold luggage is, but I assume that’s stuff you have to check, right?  I would not recommend checking the dress… I think you should carry it on.  Then you have more control over how squished it gets and it won’t get lost or end up in some crazy destination!  Also, definitely get it professionally steamed/pressed.  You could steam it yourself, maybe, but I personally wouldn’t risk it.  It’ll get wrinkled on the journey, so wait until NYC to press it.

    Agreed with above… carry on for sure, during either trip in May or September, and press/steam in NYC in September, otherwise it might get wrinkled/droopy while being stored in NYC for 4 mths.

    @Sparkidoodle:  As long as you’ve set up the appointment in advance with a reputable steamer, and have conveyed the absolute need for the dress to be back on-time, it shouldn’t be an issue. I just can’t see how having it steamed several months in advance and/or before traveling will do any good.
