She said that if they don't approve of something they will send it back to you and who knows how long that will take.

    I talked to my shipping coordinator here at work and she said she sends packages to Mexico a lot through work. She said that if you fill out the correct paperwork for customs and detail how much everything in the box is worth then you shouldn't have any problems. I have lik 40lbs in towels here that I just can not bring in a suitcase, so I have no choice. I also want to ship my centerpieces since they are glass and fragile. I'm going to do it anyway and hope for the best. They did say to send everything a month early as long as you contact the wedding coordinator and they know it is coming.

      Thank you for this information. I am also planning on shipping stuff for my OOT bags and decorations. As bad as it may be to ship stuff, it still has to be better than trying to get through customs in person with bags and bags of stuff. I'm hoping anyway!

      I see you are getting married the day before me. Where are you having your wedding/reception? I am planning on the gazebo for the wedding and the beach for the reception...but a little undecided on both.

        you have not booked your locations yet? The WC told me that i could not change my ceremony because other locations were booked. i see that your wedding is a week before mine. how is that possible?

          I have my wedding location booked, but the reception says TBD on my checklist. I asked her last week and she said we could change our wedding location if we changed our mind. Now I'm a little concerned. I have an email in to my WC (Suzanna) right now to find out for sure. I am pretty sure we will stick with the gazebo but I really hope the beach reception is still available!

            Hey All!
            I am back from our spectacular wedding! It was perfect! We had a few issues, but it really is not worth sweating the small stuff, and overall everyone had a fabulous time. This thread really helped me out in the beginning of my planning stages, so thanks for that. Below is my review, I will post more pictures when I get them, just a few so far. Let me know if you have any questions too. Thanks!

              Congrats and welcome back! I have a silly question that may already have been covered. I'm trying to decide between stadium cups and beer mugs for our OOT bags. Was the beer served in cans or into plastic cups?

              Thank you!

                Hello Ladies - I thought it might be time to update the wedding date list. I think this is the latest list we created. If you aren't on here, just add yourself! If you have any changes just go ahead and make them.
