I think the bag you have should be fine, but regarding the airlines-call them.  Take some meaurements of your dress in the bag and ask the airline you are flying on how they usually handle this situation.  It won’t the first time they have had to do that for a bride.  I do agree with you that you should carry it on.  Remember that will be your carry-on and you will only be able to have a personal item (purse) in addition to the dress, and nothing else.

Yes, call the airline and check.  Some airlines only allow First Class passengers to use the closets.

i did it this pass weekend.  The airplane we were on had a closet that they allowed me to store it in.  But most of the people were total assholes about it…it was only for first class, yada yada yada…it worked out fine but it was a lot of added stress.  Luckily, I got the dress to my final destination in tact and sans wrinkles…

Speaking of bringing your dress on an airplane…can we expand this thread to discuss issues related to airline travel with the dress?

I have not yet bought my dress, but I am having an overseas wedding.  Is there a particular type of fabric that I should be focusing on during my dress purchase that will be less likely to wrinkle as it makes its way across two continents?

Thanks,

~ Kelly

I would suggest bringing it as carry-on and having them hang it up for you. I’ve had to travel for many family weddings with a long, formal dress and that’s what I’ve done.
My BFF had a Destination Wedding in another country so she was worried about flying with her dress, but she just carried it on and had them hang it up.
