It is very obvious that you are seeking attention though. Why not own it?

interchangeable:  That was the first image I thought of the minute the OP said she “flips upside down for photos”

So I read the first post, and OP.Clearly said she was JOKING about wearing her dress. Joking. It’s right there.

So I’m going to assume that she won’t actually do that.

As for the shirts… I really don’t see the big deal in how “tacky” they are. It’s no different than anything with a monogram or name or designation.

It’s fine to want attention, it’s not a capital offense! Wear the modified white dress you were talking about or T-shirts (some will think it’s annoying but more will likely think it’s adorable, so don’t let that dissuade you).

Apple_Blossom:  This. I think OP was throwing out a hypothetical “Wouldn’t it be cool if [insert random thing you’d never actually do here]?”

While I do agree that OP sounds a bit attention-grabby, some people are just like that. To each their own so long as they aren’t disturbing or harming others.

That aside OP, I think it would be quite uncomfortable to be on such long international flights – even in just a more casual nice white dress and a suit. You refer to the outfits making great photo opportunities, but I’m curious as to what pictures you plan on taking after being on such long flights that would be worth the discomfort. The shirts sound like the more practical option while still fulfilling your desire to celebrate and showoff your newlywed status.

galephys:  Ok, I totally understand why you’d like to make it a little more special, but it’s always a good rule of thumb to dress for your destination. 

If it’s Provence, pick a nice little sundress, maybe a light coat or wrap as the plane can be cold. The  sundress could be white or a pale colour and that would make it special enough. 

If it’s Cyprus, go for something more colourful and flowing – maxi dress, gladiator sandals, etc, etc.

The only freebie you will receive is much side-eye. Also, rolling up to a foreign country in a wedding dress is going to make you look like a moron. If this whole idea really isn’t about showing off or getting attention, then monogram your underwear and leave it at that.

We eloped and I had called the airline ahead of time to ask if they would have a place on the plane where I could hang my dress so I didn’t have to stuff it in the suitcase. Dragging the garment bag through the airport was a big pain, can’t imagine wearing my dress. Several people asked if we were getting married, and we did have strangers offer congratulations and had someone buy us champagne on the plane. It was a sweet gesture, and we were amazed at the kindness of strangers (because, let’s face it… Getting married isn’t exactly a big accomplishment).

I have a newsflash, there might be other honeymooning couples on your plane.  Just wanted you to have the freakout now rather than on your honeymoon.  Seriously, people get married every day – it’s not that special.

Apple_Blossom:  I think she was “joking” in the sense that she was hoping everyone would be like “oh, that’s a great idea!” but would have plausible deniability otherwise.

OP, I kind of agree with PPs who are saying calling to attention to your honeymoon traveling may attract pickpocketers, but I freely admit to being a paranoid traveler.  Also, even in first class, a long flight could make your feet or legs swell with the change in pressure.  You wanna be comfy.  Maybe wear a maxi dress and cardigan.  (I understand if you wanna look cute with your new hubby and not just do sweats.)

My advice is to live in the moment. Everything is not a photo op for social media. What could it possibly matter to you that some random strangers in the airport or on the plane realize that you are newlyweds?

galephys:  We didn’t do anything on our plane trip. We had to get up at 4 am, put comfy clothes on, barely showered, and boarded the plane.  Who is going to be taking these pictures? Do you realize how annoying it will be to get through security? Sounds like more hassle than it’s worth. Once you get on your honeymoon, everyone will ask why you’re visiting and youll get plenty of attention then.

It all gets nasty very quickly sometimes! That being said it’s a silly idea. You’d probably garner a lot of attention but none of it positive. I’m not saying you should care what other people think but you’ve got your own dignity to consider. I would think “how immature”.

Airline freebies are virtually mythical nowadays too.
