I will be flying from Chicago to Orlando for my wedding which means baggage and needing to pack my wedding dress and get it on a plane. The dress I'm using is a ballgown and I do have a hoop skirt petticoat to fill it out. I do not want to pack the dress into checked luggage cause thanks to my anxiety I have a real fear the airline will lose the dress.
Do I take the chance and pack it in checked baggage which would allow more space for the dress which will mean less folding? Or do I stuff it into a carry on and keep it with me that way?
