I’ve seen tons of tips on here from other Bees who travelled to Europe to get married and took their dress as a carry-on and etc. Super helpful stuff!
BUT, what if we want to stay and travel around Europe as a honeymoon? What in the world do I do with a wedding dress? No way can I carry it around, right? Do I ship it back?
We’re considering ditching our domestic wedding plans and eloping, but it’s getting pretty complicated!

I really don’t see any other options besides shipping it?
We’re getting married in Hawaii and probably honeymooning on the other islands, but we are having 12 guest so I’m sending mine back with them.

If you are flying in and out of the same airport, you could have it stored for you at a commercial storage facility (or maybe ask the hotel where you stay the first night if they will keep it for you).

I’m having a Destination Wedding and I was thinking I would mail the dress back to myself. But having your guests carry it home with them is a great idea!

That is a great idea! Would totally do it if we had any guests joining us!
Our tentative plan doesn’t involve leaving from the same airport, but thanks for the tip! If things change I will definitely be looking into that.
Depending on the weight of the dress and the shipping method used, it’s going to cost me probably a few hundred dollars to ship it… not bad for the piece of mind of not having to travel through Europe with it though!
