we must be on the same wavelength! i’ve been wondering about the same issue recently.  i’m going to ask my seamstress if she has any recommendations.  if you got your dress from a bridal salon, could you ask them for advice?  also, just really quickly, i found this discussion thread and there are a few vendors on there that describe how they ship dresses.

I squished mine into a carry on suitcase… It actually came out unscathed and hardly wrinkled lol if you fly with it, do not check the bag that it’s in. Depending how large the dress is, you can just take it in the garment bag, but I was advised to put it in a suitcase if I want to be 100% certain I can take it on with me. You can ship ahead, but just make sure you get insurance and a tracking number. You may want to ship ahead of time just incase the dress gets lost in the mail and you need to get another one. Not likely or anything, but always a possibility. You can also buy an extra plane seat for your dress if you’re really really worried and have the money.

Some movers offer a special box for hanging items, that might work? You might just have to have it steamed once it arrives.
