    About bringing your dress?  Just bring it on the plane.  I did it - worked fine.

    EDIT: I put the gown in a hang up bag and carried it on the plane. I asked to hang it in a closet, but the plane didn't have one.  Instead, I laid it down on top of the other luggage in the overhead bin.  It seriously was totally fine.  Don't stress :-)

    If you're staying in a hotel when you get there, an iron will likely be available in your room.  Should be fine for touch ups on low heat with no water/steam and a thin towel or pillowcase between the iron and your dress.
    Whoever said it was supposed to be happily ever after is a big fat liar.

    This is a concern of mine too!  Airlines are really okay with you carrying on your dress?  I'm so used to them being ridiculously strict about carry on limitations and the thought of handing my dress over to baggage handlers fills me with abject horror.  Is there anything you have to do in advance to make sure it's alright to carry the dress on?  Do you have to sacrifice other hand baggage?

    They are completely fine with it.  Seriously, don't stress about it.

    I carried on another bag and my dress.  Obviously the dress counts as a carry on so don't try to stretch the rules, but yes, they are totally fine with you carrying on a dress.  Don't over think it.

    What airline did you use?  Everyone keeps telling me it will be alright, but stress is my middle name these days!!!  LOL.

    We flew US Airways - out of Philadelphia and out of Bermuda.  I actually got congrats from the flight attendants in the airport because it was so obvious what I was carrying!
