How's the security process PAL -> USA?

My wonderful lady will be in my arms in almost a week exactly from right now (well, as I typed this line). By now next week we'll have been together for about an hour :D

I'm curious about the security process in the International wing of PAL's terminal at NAIA, specifically (but not limited to) luggage procedures.

We had her wedding gown custom made in her hometown. It's apparently a very very nice gown, but I won't see it until the big day :)

A bit concerned about the security process her checked bags will go through, since this gown will be in one of them.

The gown has many rhinestones... I wonder how rhinestones look in an x-ray... I wonder if they'll want to inspect it. If they inspect it, we're worried they might get it dirty or damage it.

Also of note, she is transferring here, originating in Cagayan de Oro. PAL told me she'd be collecting her bags and re-checking, but if anyone knows otherwise, do tell. :)

Thanks all!

You gal, her dress, and rhinestones will be find. Depending on her originating airline and connecting airline her luggage may have to be rechecked and possibly reinspected. Unless she is carrying anything illegal, don't worry about it.

Best to you and yours,
