Current FAA regulations do not allow personal items to travel in a plane seat. I purchased a seat for my wedding dress to make transporting it to my destination wedding less stressful. Although I called the airline before purchasing the ticket to ensure my dress would be allowed to be stored on the seat, when boarding I was told by a flight attendant that I was informed incorrectly and that post-9-11 flight regulations prevented this. I was forced to store my dress in the overhead bin and the flight attendants were very accommodating about the confusion and reserved an entire bin just for my dress. In the end my dress traveled fine and looked amazing on my wedding day, but this was a spur of the moment stress that I was not anticipating. Don't let this happen to you. Make alternative plans for your dress as they do not allow them to be stored on a seat.
