Giving some of your luggage to your friends/family to bring to your DW?

Recommended Posts

With sooo many things to bring to a DW such as OOT bags, favors, ceremony decorations, many of us give our friends/family some of our extra luggage to bring for us. If you are giving your friends/family some of your luggage to bring to your DW, make sure that you tell them if they should check the baggage or carry it on. I know that baggage is expensive to check in now & some may carry the bags on but either way please remember to tell them whats in the luggage that you give them & let them know what they should do with it.

 

I was talking to our daughter last night & she reminded me how I almost got MIL arrested! Well not really arrested, but pretty much detained for a few minutes. The morning that we left for Jamaica, we dropped off 2 bags to both of our parents & had them bring them down with them since they were coming the next day.

Now, although it was about 3am when we dropped the luggage off, I could've SWORN that I told our parents to CHECK the bags. My MIL did not check the bags I gave her and tried to get on the plane with our cake knife set IN HER BAG!!!!! doh.gif

Needless to say, security was alarmed when the bag went through the scanner. My MIL, mom, & daughter didn't know what was going on!embarrest.gif They pulled her aside & went through the bags & found the cake knife set. Ofcourse they told her that she could not get on the plane with that & they proceeded to take the bag & made her check it.

So now the running joke is that I tried to get MIL arrested so that she couldn't make it to the wedding! Ofcourse, I'd NEVER do any such thing! angel1.gifLOL

 

Just make sure that you give people instructions on what to do with any luggage you give them & definitely tell them whats inside of the bags...just in case!

lol, it's definitely great to be able to have family and friends help tote all your stuff down. Anything we had others take, we asked them to check - and we all checked in together (those of us leaving from the same airport on same day) so I could make sure everything went as planned. :-)

 

PS - luckily those cake knife sets don't have sharp knives in them!!!

I figured that this would be a good tip to remind people about. With all of the rushing around that we do before we leave, no one ever probably thinks to tell the person to check the bag or carry it on, or even whats in the bag.

I know she was a mess when they stopper her!!! When security told her about the knife I know she was thinking "KNIFE"huh.gif What knifehuh.gifgirl_werewolf.gif
I didn't tell anyone what was in the bags...just told them it was "stuff". So I'm sure she wasn't expecting that at all. But again, I KNOW that I told them all to check the bags....sigh....I guess they probably figured it was easier to carry them on.

Yeah, you are soo right! And really we were lucky that she had a nice agent. She explained that it was for my wedding, etc, and at least they gave her the option to check the bag & didn't make her throw away the set.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
