On AA you can check in 2 bags for free if you're flying internationally. So my family members/wedding party can check in one personal luggage and the other is reserved for my stuff.
I used bubble wrap and plastic bins to store my things in, then placed them inside huge canvas bags I bought for $12-15 each at a Latin store here in miami. So far they are working out perfectly. I have 11 canvas bags, total.
Everything that's for the OOT bags is spread out between 2 bags which I'm checking in since I'll be arriving a few days before my guests. That gives me the opportunity to set the bags up before they arrive.
All the ceremony and receptions stuff is spread out between 9 bags, those will arrive 1-2 days before my acutal wedding date.
I don't trust shipping them out because the Hotel is not going to be liable for anything broken or missing.
Also, if customs in the foreign country opens the bags, it'll be in front of you, not behind closed doors with the option to really open everything up and decide what they want to keep! Not that I'm saying thats what a foreign customs officers would do but just in case....
Tsa, the ones that scan you bags in the US are nicer to your bags if you lable them correctly.
I can't say much about the airlines' Ramp agents! l

For our wedding we're inviting 90 guests, about 70 will be travelling from outside France (England, Wales, Canada, US, Italy to name a few). Can anyone recommend something to make guests feel special on their arrival without costing a fortune?
