Garment Bags in Closet?

Is there a hanging closet for garment bags?  

 

Quick trip for wedding, no checked bags. No time to wait for checked bag before ceremony.

 

Overhead compartment will result in squished & wrinkled suits/dress.

No there is not.  You would have to lay it flat on top of the bags in the overhead compartment.

Sounds like you're cutting things very close. With the frequency of delays these days I wouldn't recommend this unless you're ok with the posibility of missing the wedding.

Schedules are schedules,  cannot be helped. 

 

Overhead compartment is sure way to wrinkled clothes in  garment bag. 

 

 Maybe a hardcase carryon bag.  Or bigger, checked hardcase bag.  Better than looking rumpled or trying to arrange ironing.

General advice for any important function, or a cruise, or other time-sensitive event, is to schedule to arrive the night before if at all possible. Everyone is different, but I myself wouldn't risk timing a flight for a wedding so tightly that waiting for a checked bag was problematic. Good luck!

Last night at Midway I didn't have a checked bag, but ended up waiting 20 minutes for the economy garage shuttle. (And only passed up one Red Lot shuttle during that time.)

 

That would be game over on the wedding right there!
