Plenty of people have done this. Either get a second seat on the plane for the dress or fly first class board first and lay flat in the overhead. Just plan to get your dress steamed once you arrive in Chicago so it’s not wrinkled

I also think certain airlines have guidelines on wedding dresses. How big is this dress going to be? Maybe ask the airline in the airport when you fly to Chicago/LA about their more recent regulations.

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
