Carry On Garment Bag & Backpack

New Arrival

I will be traveling with a garment bag containing bridesmaid dresses (2).  Will I be able to get assistance from a flight attendant in order to make sure it is placed on top of other bags, overhead?  I do not want it getting crushed and wrinkling the gowns.  -- Also, may I have a backpack as my personal item, to store beneath the seat?
