    I'm lucky because I can FedEx all my OOT bag stuff ahead of time to my wedding planners' team office in Maui before we go. I have no idea how much it will cost me, but I would rather do that than worry about bringing it all with us on the plane etc. I know you can't really do that for Mexico which is too bad
    You're so lucky you can ship stuff! I have a feeling we are going to be lugging (and paying for) a lot of suitcases to Mexico.

      For checked luggage we will have 3 bog suitcases, sporting goods bag, playpen. Then our carry-on luggage will be 3 bags and our dresses. The stroller will be checked at the door when boarding, and then we get it back on the tarmac in Punta Cana.

          I haven't actually test packed, but I know what are suitcases usually look like when we go on a trip, and how much room we should still have. It will be our first trip since Justin, but Hailey has a big suitcase this time that is probably 3 times the size as her old little one, so we should be good.

            I know, the kids have a lot of stuff! We usually end up with less of their stuff when we return, but yeah, with the dresses and all the extras, it's going to be a lot. We have a friend who offered us his FedEx discount to ship our stuff, it's not that I don't trust Fed Ex, I don't trust the hotel. I would be SO PISSED if my stuff somehow disappeared in transition.

            FI got his pants last night from Island Importers. They are nice. He said he felt left out because I get a package at least once a week and he never gets anything! He is too funny. Now we are waiting on shirts and shoes to arrive. He ordered some Teva sandals from Overstock ( I have no clue what the look like), and the shirts from the Guyabera store. He bought the shoes for all of the groomsmen as a gift.

            We've changed the date of our assembly party to next week. YAY! I can finally get the invitations out!

              I haven't test packed either. But we have plenty of luggage. We both got new sets of luggage before we moved in together. Then we got a new set this year xmas time because it was so cheap.

                I haven't test packed other than my carryon suitcase. I really didn't fit much in there like I was anticipating so I know I'm going to bringing a lot. Our OOT bags alone might not even fit in one suitcase. We bought two new luggage sets from Macy's not that long ago when they were on sale. I still have my old big suitcase that I can use if needed so I'm hoping between the two of us we'll have enough room. We'll be bringing back a lot of empty suitcases so that is the part I am most pissed about since we'll have to pay to check them and there is nothing in them other than empty suitcases!

                  I am hoping to get by with three check bags and two carry ons plus dress. I hope this is realistic. I know coming home we will hopefully be lighter in weight (just not luggage) because of the lack of OOT stuff in our luggage, yeah!!

                  Celina, that will be awesome to have your assembly party!! What a relief that will be to get those out in the mail!

                      It is amor. That is cute that you are getting them engraved.
