So you’re one lucky bride who is having a destination wedding and you’re all set to go? But what about your wedding dress? Have you thought about that?
Taking your wedding dress from the shop to your home is not an easy task, so we can only imagine how traveling with your wedding dress is going to be!
Don’t worry, we have tons of tips and ideas to help your wedding process go as smooth as possible.
The main fear of brides who travel with their wedding dress is for it to get ruined, or even worse, get lost!
So here are 4 tips that will help you and your dress reach your wedding destination safely:
Box it up: Putting your dress in a pretty box with handles will help you carry it safely without damaging it. Also make sure the box fits the dimensions allowed in the overhead compartment of the airline. We love these boxes from the Empty Box Company.
Don’t ship it: Travel with your wedding dress as hand luggage and never ship it.
Acid free tissue: Make sure you wrap your dress with acid free tissue paper. Add tissues inside the folds of the wedding dress too so it won’t crease.
Treat it well: If your dress is too big to fit in any travel box or luggage to carry with you on the plane, you will need to ask for cabin space, or even purchase an extra seat, (and yes some brides do this.)
