    Wow! I can't believe they're that booked up for November. I hope there isn't too many weddings on the same day, cause I feel like brides would have to fight for particular things. My wedding is in November 2013 as well, and I am aware of 2 other brides in the same month as well. I'm sure the resort will be able to work something out. No worries.

      Oh wow just looked at your wedding date!  I am trying for Nov 12th or 13th. I will push for the 13th now so I don't crowd up your day. :) How long have you been planning for?  I feel like I am really behind!

      Currenlty they have 4 weddings per day per hotel location - mental  but they run it like clockwork.

        I know there was another bride who HAD the 13th originally, but I believe she changed it to the week after now, so there might be an opening for the 13th. I really can't believe they have 4 weddings per location per day. That seems so crowded, but I haven't really heard anyone complain, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much either.

          Hi ladies! Quick question- is anyone shipping their decorations and oot bags in advance? Does anyone know how successful this has been for other brides? I really worry about the resort losing the box!

                Hi,

                I would really recommend carrying as much as you can - also it is a good idea to split some of your things between your check in bags. For instance I am giving my parents some stuff to bring, we'll take some and am giving a few small things to my maid of honour. Obviously this depends on your baggage allowance and how much you are bringing. We are only carrying over the favours and some small decorations. The only thing I'll have shipped to the hotel is handmade personalized marracas but these are being made in Mexico.

                I used to travel to mexico for business about 5 years ago and shipped a few trade show/client things separately.  I had a lot of issues as postal systems work differently there from what I understand. If you do ship I would make sure that you ship via FedEx or UPS which can get pricey.x

                  Most of our guests live in the same city so we have decided to personally deliver the oot bags a couple of days prior to departure - we are only inviting closest friends and family so these are people we see regularly. My luck, our luggage would get lost and the goods would arrive the day after our wedding haha

                  Yeah, a LOT of items get held up at customs and don't ever make it to your resort.  So it's really not a safe and reliable option.  I'd definitely scale things back and bring them in your luggage instead.  What also helps is luggage that fits inside of each other.  For my wedding I had a big suit case and then the two suitcases that fit inside of it.  All three had wedding supplies in them.  On the way home I put the suit cases inside of the suitcases and my wedding dress smushed into the smallest one.  Made travel on the way home WAY easier!!!
