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!”

Congrats to her and I wish her happiness with her new husband and feel her pain. This will be me in a few weeks traveling via plane w/my dress. YIKES

I hope she had the good graces to buy 2 seats? I wouldn’t want to be inconvenienced like that on a plane

I got married in a different city from where I live too and I was so scared of my dress getting lost that my parents agreed to drive down with it in the car with them. I totally understand why she kept it with her in her seat. Though I do think she probably should have bought two seats.

Go Sherri! You look great! You look like you are about 25 in this pic – whatever you are doing is working!!! I can totally see you have lost weight. Also, wishing you so much success with your family plans – have “FAITH”!

She’s sitting in First Class, and probably has her son or a friend or assistant in the seat next to her. She’s not likely annoying some random stranger with her dress!

Sherri, you are so cute holding that dress! Have a wonderful day and best wishes to you both!

Sherri doesn’t normally fly first class; she’s just like the rest of us and flies as economically as possible when she is paying the way. Having said that, for this flight, she most likely is in first class (by the look of the seat) so she and her dress could travel together. Smart move.

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!

I love Sherri and wish her all the best for a happy marriage!

I don’t think you can compare Sherri to Starr. I was surprised to even read that comment. She has NOT monopolized us with her wedding plans on The View. She is a sweet and genuine woman, and is very, very likeable, in my humble opinion.
