? for those of you who traveled with glass decor

Recommended Posts

I'm taking glass candleholders (they vary between 5-10 inches tall and have thin stems) along with me to Mexico. I'm obviously going to pad them up as much as possible so they won't break, but I bought an extra one in each size just incase one of them does break.

 

Is that enough or should I buy a few extra? I don't want to buy too many extras because of $$ and I don't want to add more carry-on items to my already long list. How many of your glass items (whether they were candleholders or not) broke while traveling?

I brought (and sent) plenty of glass with me, but much of my decisions about which glass to buy were based on what would be less likely to break during shipping/travel. None of it broke, although I did bring a few extra just in case... I would say that your decisions about how many extra to buy should be based on likelihood of breakage. That's probably not so helpful, but that's all I've got! Good luck!!

Nothing of ours broke. I packed it with tissue paper inside and bubble wrap outside. Had it in my carry-on on the way down and checked baggage on the way back, also wrapped in clothing. No issues. :-)

I didn't bring much...but I brought a bunch of glass votive holders but packed them in the boxes they came in and I had a couple vases and I bought some bubble wrap for cheap at longs drugs and it worked great!

I have 10 glass centerpieces. I am giving 10 family members to take one each and carry it to Cancun. That will be their carry on luggage.

That's what I was planning on doing as well! We have 22 people traveling with us, so I will be putting them to work and holding my boxes!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
