    Hi Ladies,

    How did you or do you plan to bring all the goodies (favours, OOTs, decorations, etc) with you? Me and FH have 2 luggages going with and I'm thinking of packing 2 boxes for all the extras? Our airline is making us pay for our bags but with the goodies, I really only have to pay for it one way. If I were to pack a luggage bag for extras, then I would have to pay for the empty bag to return home. Do you think boxes would be a safe alternative? I'm curious to know what others have done in the past and what others are planning on doing.

      I think that we had about 6 to 8 bags total. We each checked 2 bags & each carried on 1 bag. The morning that we left, we dropped off 2 bags to each of our parents & they brought them down with them. No one paid any extra baggage fee's & it worked perfectly. Since our parents came the day after us we were still able to assemble the OOT bags before the rest of the guests came.
      On the way back, we had sooo many empty bags that it was hilarious. So, we basically packed bags within bags & then checked those. We didn't have a problem doing that.
      Luckily we got married before all of these crazy fee's for checked baggage. Is it possible for you to put any of your bags, inside of other bags on the way back so that you don't have to pay any additional fee's? If you can, I'd definitely ask family members to take any bags for you.

        Great idea! Maybe I can get a big heavy duty duffle bag and then we squish them into the other bags. Ya, I wish we would've gotten away with free bags but it's a sign of the times, what can you do....

        We did already plan on having family take some of the small stuff (since they have to pay for bags too)... so we've already tapped that resource

          We only had 10 people so we didn't have alot of things but we did have to cart down our silk flowers...4 candle holders...place cards, fans etc. We just had each person pack some stuff for us.
