Default wedding dress

it's pretty bulky - has a train but not a super long one...

i really do not want to check it in and it won't fit in a carry on i don't think...

i have heard airlines have coat closets if you need something hung up?

Some planes have closets but not all, so I wouldn't count on it.

your best bet would be to have your ta call the airline for you. If you didn't use a ta then i would call the airline, not reservations but customer service tell them exactly what you told us, give them your flight number and hope for the best, otherwise you are going to have to pack it in a garment bag and check it in

another option that you might consider is that if you are staying at a hotel pre-cruise have your dress shipped to the hotel, have UPS or FedEX or whatever box it up for you, ship it insured to the hotel, call the hotel and tell them what you are doing.
