            If you have a dollar store near you, it's a great place to get them and also to save money :)

              We are packing all of the OOT bags and wedding supplies in Tupperware containers. We have 2 Tupperware containers and used space bags to conserve space. we put flip flops in the space bags, the straw fans the OOt bags itself and Sunblock and Aloe (so the would not explode).  We called American Airlines to see if this was acceptable as luggage and they said yes as long as it fit in the dimensions and weight requirements items must be 62 inches or under this is length + Height + width and must be 50 lbs or under. We plan on leaving the Tupperware containers in the Dominican Republic.

                it will all depend on how much decor I ended up getting.  But our travel agent was able to upgrade us to elite class and get us all 28 extra kg.  that should help!
