How to transport your wedding dress?

Whether you’ve decided, it’s important that your wedding dress looks perfect on your big day.

That’s why transporting your wedding dress is so important! Before we start please be sure to ask your wedding dress retailer to provide you with a bridal dress cover before you take it home to protect it from rips, wrinkles, and other damages. Leave it in that packaging!


First thing: if you’re having a wedding abroad or out of town don’t pack a wedding dress in your checked luggage. Do NOT, under any circumstances, check your wedding dress. Before you buy any specialty bags to transport your dress, contact your airline to find out what their policy is on carrying wedding dresses on board. If you have a ball gown dress consider buying your dress a seat.


The best option is to get a train during off-peak travelling hours. This way you will have more space to store your dress. Even then don’t forget to keep the dress in protective packaging such as a garment holder.


Make sure you don’t lay anything else on top of the dress. Drape the gown over the back seat, keeping it as flat as possible to avoid wrinkling. If it’s possible take a trusted travel partner with you to either drive or keep an eye on the dress.

With a little protection and planning, your dress will look absolutely perfect on the big day.
