Hello ladies !


I am having a destination wedding and I’m not sure how I should travel with my dress. I would love to get some advice ! How did you guys pack it so it won’t be wrinkly; etc.

    I didn’t know I could carry it with me. I thought it had to be packed in the bag.


    And congratulations!! Where did you go?

    I suggest keeping it in your carryon luggage. That way you still have your dress if your checked luggage gets lost.

    Yeah I definitely was thinking that. I usually only bring a carry on a personal bag anyways because that’s one of my biggest fears 😂😂getting a checked bag lost

    Also, suitcase packing bags may help protect your dress from the other things in your bag. Some fabrics and even dresses have packing/storage instructions. Maybe check with your salon or wherever you bought your dress to see if they have suggestions. As I said in the linked post, I vacuum packed my ballgown when I flew from Vienna to NYC and it was perfectly fine.
