    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!!!!!
    Needless to say, security was alarmed when the bag went through the scanner. My MIL, mom, & daughter didn't know what was going on! 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! LOL

    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" What knife
          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.
