Shipping things out before hand??

Recommended Posts

Hello...

I don't think I've read this on another thread and I wanted to ask.

I am hoping to have my DW at Dreams Cancun next July....I also was hoping to make my own Center pieces and Bridal Bouquets and I'm not sure what else.

My Question is...Would I be able to ship any of this stuff out, say a month or so before the wedding to my WC at the resort? Has anyone ever done this?

I really don't want to have to drag all of that stuff on the plan with us! It's bad enough I am gonna be a nervous wreck about my dress!!

 

Any thoughts or Advice is appreciated!! :-) Thanks!!!

It has been mentioned before. Most people do not recommend it. Once your stuff enters Mexico, it is handed off to another delivery company so you don't know what is going to happen to it. It is also pretty expensive! Most resorts do not accept the packages anyways because they do not want to be responsible.

As Bianca mentioned, from what I have heard the shipping methods to Mexico are very expensive and often unreliable. Yes it will be a pain to drag our crap through the airport but my feeling is at least I will know where my crap is. I dont know if DC would store it for you. Maybe Jill knows that one or someone else.

I agree with the others and would NOT recommend shipping anything to Mexico. My friend lives in Mexico and works at a school where she has had 2 things shipped to--one showed up, one did not. Her old roommate was also supposed to receive a birthday package but it never got there. She even says for us not to bother mailing her cards and things like that b/c it'll never get there.

 

I know it's a pain to have to pack an extra suitcase or 2 (or 3), but at least you have the peace of mind knowing it'll get there. Plus, it will end up being less money to pack it than the ship it.

I agree with the girls...I wouldn't rely on my packages to get delivered beforehand...I would rather bring them on the plane. I am bringing my own centerpieces down as well...I plan to but my BM's to good use and have them help me! cheesy.gif I recommend carrying them on if you can...Lord knows how the airlines actually handle baggage marked "Fragile!"

Good Luck!

Ok, this is slightly off subject, but I was wondering about disposable cameras. I just bought a ton of them to take down to Mexico but will they be ok going through the Xray? I have taken these types of cameras through in a carry-on and they were fine, but if I put them in a checked bag will they be ok? I only ask because my fiance took 3 disposables on a flight and all 3 got messed up somehow. (Maybe they were all bad to begin with?) I just don't want that to happen with these. I bought them fairly cheap from the knot wedding shop so I hope they will be ok.

Thanks Everyone! I think I will take your advice and see how much I actually have when all is said and done and then I will take it with me and/or have everyone help me out a little! :-) Thank you so much! :-)

    • 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. 
    • 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?
