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

teresa asaro on

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

Jenn on

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.

Em on

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”!

Kat on

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!

KDemir on

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.

JMo on

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!

kct on

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

Sandy McCargar on

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.

ELC on

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

Ed.R on

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!!!

Kym on

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

Lucymay on

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!

Katy on

Will be so glad when she gets married…was like having another “Star” Wedding………YIKES

Amanda on

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.

Cinder's mom on

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.

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!

Susan on

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

JMo on

To all of you who thought my earlier comments were negative and unkind to Sherri Shepherd, obviously only watch the View occasionally. I watch EVERY day and she never misses an opportunity to talk about her wedding on each and every show. She seems to be trying to turn a 2nd wedding into a virginal, first wedding. I, too, have been married twice, BUT my second wedding while nicer than the first, didn’t find me acting like it was my first time around. I was married 14 years, the first time, waited 16 yrs before marrying again and now we have been married for 18 years! Come on! I was just saying that she is acting like a blushing, virginal bride when it’s her 2nd marriage. All of this big wedding is not necessary!!! A simple, tasteful wedding, with close family & friends, is more appropriate. The marriage should be more important than a silly,[wedding party dancing] big, over the top, wedding. From what I saw on the Marriage Counseling with her and Sal, I see a lot of red flags for that marriage. Whoopie told her right! She needs to hold off on having a baby because it appears that Sal isn’t ready to be a DAD yet. Most of the panel agreed.

fudge on

She is so unreal and a fluke of a person to have committed abortions, so why the mention of her on anything, I think she is an unreal person and should not be on THE VIEW> See this Bar. So we will see if the marriage works out. Get off the show. I do not watch it because of her and her having the abortions.
