I think I am going to ship a box of stuff to Mexico prior to the wedding. I have heard the risks about shipping to Mexico, so, I called DHL the other day to get specific instructions.
She told me that Mexico is tricky and have a lot of funky rules & regulations. Probably why some stuff never makes it. They have weird rules about shipping clothes or fabric, etc. She told me that when I fill out the commerical Invoice to list EVERY item with, quantities, a detailed description, cost and (**IMPORTANT**) make sure to write at the bottom
"No Commerical Value"
For Custom Purposes Only"
Gifts for Wedding guests
Not For Resale
(and then put your contact information)
She also told me to have a contact name on the label (I am going to ship to Mariana at Dreams and send her an e-mail that it is coming) and she said to allow at least 5 days. I am going to allow 3 weeks, since I'm paranoid
I am going to use my company account number and reimburse them. That will give me a big discount.
I got an estimate from DHL and one big box weighing 10lbs with insurance was around $200 from Orange County to Cabo.

I was just curious...
My sister is in charge of doing my centerpieces and helping w/ oot bags, etc... she is a designer and so she has all the creative ideas and does good w/ budgets...anyway, I was wondering if we end up having alot of stuff to take with us (which I am going to try and keep it all at a minimum the best I can) have any of you shipped some of your items to your wedding coordinator ahead of time like a week or two?? Just to try and save the hassle of packing it in luggage, etc....
