How did you handle luggage/baggage to ROR?

Recommended Posts

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.

 

THANKS!

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 resourcemsnwink.gif

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.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
