Cabin Baggage Size Guide

Cabin Baggage Size Guide – Hand-Luggage Requirements – Which Wedding Dress Travel Box

Our Cabin Baggage Size Guide will help you decide which wedding dress travel case is most suitable for you.  We have summarized most airlines cabin baggage policies. Please bear in mind that these policies can change at any time and this page should only be used as a guide. For the most up to date information and specific cabin baggage requirements please contact your airline directly, both for travel to and from the UK plus any onward travel. Remember that your Wedding Dress Travel Box will be your one piece of cabin baggage although some (but not all) airlines do also allow a small handbag – it is very important that you check this before your departure.  During busy times, many airlines operate a ‘first come, first served’ system with cabin baggage and can ask passengers checking in late to put their cabin baggage in the hold – please try and check in early with your Travel Box.
