    @ christinew: I did carry it in the white garment bag the bridal shop gave me. The bag was pretty poofy but I had to fold it in half to carry it. Everyone basically knew there was a wedding dress in it so no one gave me problems about it being big. You should have no problems. You can ask to put it in a closet, but be prepared if they say no or they dont have one, to put it in an overhead bin.

    Christinew - we just got back from our wedding a few weeks ago - we ended up having a stop over both ways and each time I was able to put my dress in the flight attendants closet. I would suggest a dress bag, and it does count as a carryon item, unfortunately. For us, I had my husband take it as his item and I brought a HUGE bag that carried both of our stuff for the flight so it worked out well! =)
    My dress really didn't get wrinkled but the hotel (we were at the Radisson) had a steamer come up to steam the dress and suit for me - I would suggest you do this regardless of how wrinkled it is...it's your wedding day, 1 wrinkle is 1 too many =) Hope that helped!

    Congratulations!!

    Arubabride - congrats and thanks for the info. I contacted the airline and they assured me I could carry on with the bag (the white poofy one lol) without any problems. They assured me the airline was not going to make me check the bag at the last minute. We have a layover in miami and both of our flights are on larger aircraft so I'm feeling pretty good about the situation.

    I also contacted my wedding planner a few days ago to arrange a steam cleaning at our villa. I agree, one wrinkle is too many!

    I was actually just wondering about this. Thanks for the tips everyone. I am sure I will need my dress to get pressed again in Aruba!

    wedding dress

    I must say, all were very great answers. If worst comes to worst, a steamer can be obtained if necessary :-)

    I LOVE this forum! It's been so helpful to me during the entire planning process. We leave in less than 2 weeks...so excited! I'm a bit concerned about traveling with my dress as well. We're taking a Jet Blue flight from NY and I'm told there are no closets on board, that it will have to go in the overhead bin.
