I know when you go thru customs you are supposed to show receipts but most of the stuff I am ordering online, will this be a problem? Do I need to print the email confirmations?
Also what type of fabric do I need for the Gazebo on the sky deck and what size fabric do I get? And Finally what length christmas lights do I get for the poles at Zavaz Plaza for the reception. Oh and one more thing...I ordered the Chinese hanging lanterns. If I have Christmas lights on the 6 poles do I still need the lights inside of the hanging lanterns? I know I am asking alot of questions. I am so last minute and trying ti know everything out this month. Thank you guys for any help that you can provide
I have added you to the official Bridal roll call, and it looks like you are our first August bride! Okay- let's try to answer everything:
- Chair sashes- can be any fabric, just depends on the look you want. Like Allie mentioned the organza are much more see through, compared to satin.
- Technically you will not need receipts for your decor, but I would bring the email receipts just in case. Customs just want to make sure you are not bringing things into the country to sell. And that being said, you will likely only have to show things to customs if you get the red light! Simply state it is decor for your wedding.
- Fabric choice for the gazebo is personal. But the dimensions are all listed on the Official thread (as well lots of helpful tips about customs/airport/etc) :
- Dimensions for the Zavas gazebo are on the official thread, but I am not sure what length you would need for lights. Hopefully the photo will help. I think if you are hanging lights that will be plenty, so I don't think you have to worry about lights for inside the lanterns.
