      I have heard of this. I read an article in InStyle Weddings. Apparently it is really common among celebrities. I thought it was a little pricey, but at least you know your stuff will get there. I wanted to do it, but where I am getting married practically in the rainforest.

          I have - when traveling to winter wonderlands in Canada, etc. The snow pants and ski gear are just too cumbersome.

          However, I don't recommend it to Mexico. You have to go through DHL and it's less reliable.

            I have never heard of this before, but I dont know if I would risk it for your wedding. Has anyone heard of space bags? I saw those on tv and they look pretty cool.

              Are those the bags that are airpacked tight so that everything you put in them kind of collapses or something. And you put all this stuff in the bag and then it just looks flat? If we are talking about the same ones then it is crazy how they do that. I forget how you take stuff out, I think you have to wet it or something like that.

                There is no way in heck I would ship stuff. (esp to MX!)
                I would never see it again... and i'm way too anal about my stuff to send it off with anyone but me. I even stress about checked luggage...!
