Wedding Dress Travel Box for Plane
When traveling with your wedding dress on a plane, it is important to take steps to ensure its safe arrival. One way to do this is by using a wedding dress travel box specifically designed for carrying wedding dresses as hand luggage. Here’s how you can prepare your wedding dress for travel:
1. Choose the right travel box: Look for a sturdy and durable box specifically designed for transporting wedding dresses. There are various options available online or at specialty stores. At Bonbod’s our boxes are 55x36x20cms so the perfect dimensions to comply with your airline’s carry-on luggage restrictions.
2. Prepare your dress: Prior to packing, have your dress professionally cleaned and pressed. This will help prevent any stains or wrinkles during the journey. Remove any detachable parts or accessories, like belts or veils, and pack them separately.
3. Fold or roll method: Depending on the fabric and style of your dress, choose either the fold or roll method to pack it in the travel box. For delicate fabrics, folding is generally recommended, while rolling works well for more resilient materials. Be sure to follow any specific instructions provided by the dress manufacturer.
4. Padding and protection: Use acid-free tissue paper or clean, white cotton sheets to wrap your dress to prevent any direct contact with the box. This provides an extra layer to protect delicate fabrics and lace details. Stuff the bodice and sleeves with tissue paper to help it maintain its shape.
5. Secure the dress in the box: Place your dress inside the travel box carefully, ensuring it is centered and lies flat. If there is any empty space, fill it with additional tissue paper to prevent movement. Close the box and secure it with the provided clips or straps.
6. Additional precautions: Consider adding a waterproof or dustproof cover on top of the dress inside the box for added protection. Make sure any zippers or buttons are covered to avoid snags or damage.
7. Carry-on requirements: Check with your airline about their specific carry-on requirements and restrictions. Some airlines may allow wedding dress travel boxes to be carried in the overhead compartment, while others may require you to store it in a designated closet in the cabin. Plan accordingly and arrive early to ensure accommodation.
8. Communication: Inform the flight attendants about the delicate nature of your carry-on and request their assistance in finding a safe spot for your wedding dress during the flight.
By following these steps and taking proper precautions, you can safely transport your wedding dress on a plane as hand luggage.
