Hi Denise! Great pics, and everybody looked happy and carefree!

 

I do have a question though; regarding your basket of goodies. . . did you have problems going through customs with those items? I'm planning on doing a welcome bag for all my guests and am worried that Mexican customs might "for some reason" confiscate any, or all of my items. I spent a lot of money on these items and don't want to have wasted my money! Another thing I'm worried about is all the new rules regarding a second (or more) checked on baggage charges. With all the advice against shipping things ahead of time, and with all the baggage I probably know I will end up having, I foresee my time on the plane and at the airport to be an experience I will never forget (not in a good way)! I will be so glad when I can sleep again!

Your florals were amazing! I love the arch! I really really want one, but it looks like the cheapest I can get will be about $700!

Erin, thanks! I paid $600 for that arch. I new it was costly, but I wanted something on the beach.

I didn't have a whole lot of goodies. I would say I had a Target/Walmart size bag of the goodies and 2 baskets in my suitcase and 2 in my son's suitcase. They never looked in my suitcase. You should be good.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
