Was it hectic getting it all there and then putting them together?
I'm also making my bouquets and bouts and god knows what else....Center pieces maybe? I dunno, but I am gonna need alot of suit cases aren't I?
I better tell my FI to pack lite!! hahahahaha
To give you an idea: I bought 30 medium sized tote bags from eddie bauer (canvas, blue handles) and are having them monogramed. They have their own large suitcase.
The items I am bringing to put in the bags are small, so they will take up one more medium suitcase, then when we get to mexico, we are going to take a trip to the store to buy some bottled water, a couple of snacks and maybe little bottles of tiquila.
*** The best idea I have is to make sure your luggage can pack into other luggage for the ride home. So if I have things that are non breakable- like the bags themselves, I am going to try to put them in a duffle bag so I have less to bring home, make sense?
The other thing I am trying to remember is to not get too carried away, the gesture is nice, but people will appriciate anything we do!
