if i were you i’d wrap it in tissue paper and fold it gently in a hard-sided carry-on bag so it won’t get mashed by other people’s suitcases in the overhead bin.  this is what i’m doing with my dress since we are flying a budget airline that doesn’t have closets.

I flew mine on a plane over the Christmas holiday (so super busy, really full planes) and had no problem putting it in the closet up by first class.  Most flight attendants are female and they are going to understand that you don’t want to fold up your wedding gown.  I wouldn’t be too worried about it.

It should be ok in the overhead.  I would make sure that no one else puts anything up there though so your dress doesn’t get crushed during landing and take off.  I know you really can’t say this overhead is off limits but maybe you can get on the plane first, when they call for parents with small children and those needing extra help hop in line to get on, and then you can stake out the overhead.  Talk to a local dry cleaner or seamstress and see what they say about seaming your dress.  I would think it would be ok and you can just buy one of those travel steamers to do it instead of sending it out.  Good luck!!!!!!

When we were flying for our honeymoon I was surprised by how many wedding dress bags were in the closets up front.  I had never noticed them before!  But in one closet on the bigger plane there were maybe five dresses hanging and it seemed like there was plenty of room.

I’m a flight attendant, and I can tell you that it is very rare for us to be able to fit a wedding dress in our first class closets.  On most of our planes they are quite small and not only do we have to fit first class coats in there, but it is also the storage spot for the onboard wheelchair and oftentimes the only place we have to put our tote bags.  If they *can* accomodate your dress, great!  But please don’t count on it.
