Sherri Shepherd's Carry On? Her Wedding Dress

Is this her one small bag, or her personal item? Sherri Shepherd toted quite the carry on Tuesday on a flight from New York City, deciding to keep her wedding dress with her in flight.

“Headed out tomorrow 2 Chicago… I’m carrying my dress with me,” the View host Tweeted late Monday. “Hopefully the nice flight attendants will be able to store it-dress is huge.” Though she called customer service to see if her flight crew could accommodate her gown, she ultimately ended up keeping it with her. “May not have had any room to sit but I got my wedding dress on that plane,” she Tweeted.

Shepherd, who got engaged to TV writer Lamar Sally in December, is marrying her “baby” this weekend in Chicago. And though she’s revealed some details of her big day — her cake will be red velvet and her 6-year-old son Jeffrey will walk her down the aisle — the look of her dress, designed by Rivini, has stayed a secret. However, the talk show hostess did admit to lying about her dress size, kicking her into a diet and exercise frenzy last month. “Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] told me to tell the truth but I lied. So I’m going to the gym and starting Zumba tomorrow,” she joked in June.

But just like any bride, she’s feeling those pre-wedding jitters regardless. “I’m so nervous I can’t sleep,” she told Twitter followers. “Have a great night & thanks for putting up with my marital ramblings!”

My greatest pleasure would be if Sherri left The
View. She is a big mouth-has no eating etiquette
and is just plain annoying.

I’ll be glad when she does it cause I am so sick of hearing about it!!! And it probably won’t last as long as Star Jones’. Also, I get so darn tired of hearing about Jeffery!!! And really, they ain’t a cute couple!!!

JMo – get a little positive in your life. It does help with that affliction called “negativitiosis”.

To JMo: Why so hostile? I think Sherry is funny and intelligent, probably just going through the normal jitters about everything going according to plan for the wedding. Lighten up already and find some joy in your heart! Congratulations Sherry and Lamar, I’m sure your wedding day will be filled with love and happiness!

My husband is a travel agent and he told me that most airlines have a special closet for wedding gowns that many traveling brides don’t know about. They will store your gown in the closet (granting it fits) and you can still carry on your required amount of carry-ons!

If she would get a breast reduction she would look even thinner and probably feel better. Way too much up top.

I had two weddings also; the first 40 years ago, the second, five years ago tomorrow. I was nervous both times, so I can certainly understand Sherri’s jitters. I wish them happiness as they start their new life together.

Give me a break! This isn’t her FIRST marriage,so why all of this nervousness? Good grief! How many of you think that the dress is strapless with her big boobs about to pop out? I bet that’s the case.
Ever since the engagement, she has bored all of us viewers [just like Starr Jones] with her wedding plans. Hope the marriage works, but I have serious doubts!

Exactly the reason I would never marry again. Once bit, twice shy. I’d be MORE nervous the 2nd time around. No, she hasn’t hardly talked about her wedding at all and notice she is marrying in the “off time” NOT during sweeps?! It’s obvious you don’t watch The View much!

You look great, Sherri!! Good luck with your upcoming nuptial and may God continue to bless and guide you.
