I have read about all of these bags and the awesome goodies, but how is everyone getting them to their DW? From the sounds of some of the bags that they are going to weigh a lot. I think I may crash some of these weddings. LOL, J/K

A lot of girls have made up packing lists that have everything planned out for all four suitcases. I think it is Paulav that had a really good one. I will see if I can find it

Wow! That list is great, I'm gonna copy and save it.


Our out of town bags are probably going to be heave too. My parents, Maid of Honor and Best Man are coming down early with us, so we might give them each some stuff to take with them (maybe take over 1/2 to a whole suitecase if they can spear it).

My MOH is the first person out of all of my guests to arrive in Cancun for the wedding. I am going to send enough with her to make the bags for all the guests that arrive before me. We are expecting around 80 people. And everything else will be divided among all the families bags. We are taking down a lot of stuff. It's a good thing that bathing suits don't take up a lot of room in the luggage! wink.gif

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
