That is perfectly fine! You can carry whatever you want in  your carry-on so long as it’s not on the restricted list. Just make sure you don’t have too many liquids, and they aren’t more than 100 mL.

All electronics are allowed on the airplane.  The only thing that is restricted in the US are liquids.  You need to have all liquids in a quart sized ziploc bag and they need to be under 3 oz.  The bottle has to be below 3 oz, you can’t have a 5 oz bottle that is half full.

Everyone is allowed one carryon and one personal item so the bag and purse are fine.  A lot of planes are overbooked so if you are the last to board, there might not be room for your carryons in the overhead bin though.

Nope.. doesn’t matter if you pack clothes in your personal bag.  As long as at least one of the pieces can fit under the seat in front of you (the purse and the messenger bag both should) then you will be totally fine.  For the liquids, you can carry liquids in a sandwich size plastic bag.  No individual item can be more than 3 ounces but other than that as long as everything fits in the bag and you can close it.. then you’re OK.  You and your Fiance can each bring your own bag of liquids.

Each person is allowed one carry on bag and one additional item (purse and messenger bag qualify).  I see no reason you can’t put a bathing suit in whatever bag.

Also, remember that the liquids, even in your carry on suitcase, have to fit into a quart sized clear bag and each container has to be 3 ounces or less.

You can definitely do that as long as you adhere to their 3 ounces of liquid rule (or whatever it currently is).

We have issues with carry on only due to my contact solutions!

Depending on the airline, there will be a “checked baggage fee”.  We mostly fly Continental, it’s 15 a bag, each way.

You are also allowed one sandwich bag filled with liquid items, none can be over 3 oz in size.  Even if your 4 oz bottle of face wash is half empty, it goes in the trash if the bottle says more than 3 oz.

Ella, contact solution is actually considered medicinal and does not have to adhere to the 3 oz rules!  You just needs to pull it out of your bag to go through the scanner.

@Moose: Thanks for the heads up about contact solution!  I usually still check a bag because I don’t want to have to buy all the sunscreen I need when I get to the vacation spot.  Plus, I can’t handle hotel shampoos!

Moose is correct. You can bring any amount of contact lense solution you want, you just have to declare it as you go through the scanner. Pull it out and show it to the screener attendant and let them know it is a medical item.

HAHA I’m with you on the shampoo @MissAB!  I fly home to MA to see my family A LOT so normally the only liquid thing I have to bring there is the contact solution so I can just do carry on.  But one time I forgot the rules and tried to pack a huge aerosol can of mousse… TSA didn’t like that so much.

Wow, that’s great to know about the contact solution!  That will make me super happy in future travels.  We have just been shoving all our stuff into one checked bag to save a few dollars!  Now I know!
