How to Travel with Your Destination Wedding Dress
A dream wedding is one of the greatest events that every girl dreams of. Preparing for the big day can be very stressful and exhausting, peculiarly for the bride. Everything has to be perfect. Perfect dress, jewelry, shoes, ceremony, the groom`s suit…literary every single detail. If the future newlyweds decide to travel somewhere to do the wedding ceremony, they must think through and plan everything they are going to need.
There are several ways you can travel with your wedding dress. One of the biggest problems for the bride is how to carry over the wedding dress without any obstacles. A thing that is very important is that the gown does not get any wrinkles and not to get stains. So, the thing what not to do is not to put any liquids near the dress. No one wants to unpack the dress and see that something leak on it.
Dress for this magical day you can put in a garment bag, which will be with you on a plane. If you say to the flight attendants that you are traveling with the wedding dress, they will be very polite to you. Also, they will try to help you as much as they can, so you can feel comfortable and have much space as you need. If you ask passengers, they will let you put garment bag in overhead bin above the luggage.
Some airplane companies have special treatment for this kind of situations. You should call them and tell that you are traveling with your wedding attire. They will take special care of you, and your dress will be the first thing embarked on the plane. If there is a special carry-on section for this kind of requests, your dress would be there. Just do not afraid to ask. In case that the plane does not have a special carry-on section, ask a flight attendant to hang your dress in their closet.
If you have “hard case” carry on, that will do a great job too. When you put your dress in this, it will prohibit people to stuff their bags over yours. For packing your wedding dress in carry-on the best way is to put tissue paper between each fold, and the dress won`t get wrinkles. If you have money and want your dress to be tip-top and on your sight all the way, buy a ticket for it. Or simply, you can wear the dress on the plane, it will be fun!
Do not forget to bring all stuff that you will need for this day (shoes, veil, jewelry, garter, etc.). It is much safer to pack all of these in your carry-on than to put in your luggage because it had happened on the airport to lose a luggage. Some air companies prepare a surprise party for the happy couple when they land on the airport. So, be ready for a potential surprise.
