So you sent the boxes through TSA security and they put the ties on? yes - we walked them to TSA and asked the guy if we should close them up before he took them or if he could inspect them and then watch us seal them up - it wasn't a problem doing it that way - just make sure you bring your own box tape and zip ties so you can quickly close them after inspection
Sorry so many questions about this....but I was super nervous about this very same thing since we are talking ALL of our decor (including many breakables).we wrapped all the candle holders and glass items in bubble wrap - we bought a roll of it at lowes - i was worried too but it worked out great
You said it was hot there....was it warm at night too or did it get cool? I am wondering how cool in will be at night in April? warm during the day like 80 degrees and great to sit by the pool in but it got cool at night - bring a few sweaters to cover up with.
About transportation....was this just you and Scott or was it a bunch of guests on the same ride to the Hilton? For your 17 guests....will they all be picked up from the airport at the same time? How does this work? I want to contact this company for us and our guests. I will definitely let them know you & Scott referred us!!Scott and I were alone on this trip and we paid $51 total for both of us- roundtrip airport transfers. I know that when I go in July I have 17 people coming on one flight and so I emailed them when I got back to find out if they could give us a better rate. That is when they quoted me the better rate. I know they will give other guests arriving at different times a better rate too but not sure what it will be exactly
Again, thanks for all your information. No Problem - right back at ya - you have been soo helpful too!
