    Hi Ladies!

    I need your help. I want to do welcome bags for my guests for my beaches boscobel wedding next May. I want to be able to mail the bags down ahead of time so i don't have to worry about them as well as my dress and other things. Do any of you know if I can ship them down to the resort?

    Thanks in advance!

      Most resorts won't accept things shipped prior to the wedding. I got married at BB in May and the WC there told me that they only way things could be shipped there was if they placed the order for me and from their store. I wasn't interested in anything that they offered, so skipped including them. I brought most of my stuff wtih me; however, I did give out some of the bags beforehand.

        I'm with Carly on this, I wasn't interested in what they had to offer after finding out I couldn't ship. So with my impending day just around the corner and my bags almost all done, I'm going to have my FMIL and friends pack a few bags each in their luggage for me. So I won't have to worry about it so much. I think another option is maybe try and get a dinner with everyone going down that is local to you and pass them out then.

          Thanks Ladies! I wasn't sure if I was getting the correct information from Renee so i figured I would check here.

          The prices for their stuff is so outrageous! I couldn't believe it! Some of the stuff I want in my OOT bags is the timeline and other evernt for the weekend, in room snacks and bottled water and of course some Jamaican rum and Blue mountain coffee. I think I will just bring the stuff with me and maybe put it together on the ride from the airport to the resort. How is that ride, other than long?

            I kinda liked it. It was like a transitionary period of calmness. And it was pretty! Mostly, anyway. Although, I would pay extra to have a private transfer both ways. I had the Twilight Package which included private transfer one way and was PISSED when we had to take the ride to leave in a bus full of kids and loud people. Although, be prepared to fend off (or accept, who knows!) advances from sellers of hash, pot, coke, etc.

              I got married at the same resort this past May and between my mom and I, we brought everything for our OOT bags down with us and then assembled them when we got there. You can ship them down there if it is very close to the wedding and you can have it held in the wedding planner's office there. Though it is extremely expensive to ship them so you might want to just bring them. You do not have to go through Renee for everything, you can actually call down there and speak to any one of them at the resort and they can help you as well. They were great to work with and extremely sweet and pleasant.
