As far as water bottles for our OOT bags, do I ship cases to St John USVI? Or do I pack them in a suit case? Any advice?

    I also am using bubble wrap.  I have already been collecting it at work.

    I've only used a vacuum bag once before and it definitely left wrinkles but I could have just been doing it wrong.
    I'm going to have to invest in bubble wrap!

      The shop I am getting my dress from said they would pack it for me in a carry on.  I am bringing an empty suitcase up for them to take care of that.  Then I will just get it steamed at the resort.

        If you really want to budget but make sure everything is safe you could stop by museums or art galleries and pick up their left over shipping supplies. They have a vast array of foams that they will be throwing out after it transported the artwork. My fiance works at a gallery so we have quite a bit of foam saved up. We will package everything then distribute it to friends and family to help us bring down.

          Vacuum bags are a great idea! But how do you use the vacuum bag for the trip home?
