Border Crossing Complete!!!! Site visit on 12/20

Recommended Posts

A mother's love has no end.


My mother drove from Idaho to the Bay Area, then to me in Orange COunty to pick up my 12 suitcases of wedding stuff to deliver (driving) to Cabo San Lucas). She left today with the truck packed to the gills with all 12 suitcases (Thanks Jess for 7 duffles) plus an additional several random items.


She left OC at 7:30 am today and made it to and across the border in less than 2.5 hours. She didn't get stopped at all...waved through with 0 issues.


Unfortunately as many of you know our storms here have been horrible and the roads are covered in accidents, trees blown down or over 3 ft if water ub the intersection once she passed TJ. I have lost contact with her at 3 PM today and am praying that all is well.


However, absolutely thrilled that all my wedding stuff (yes I am 3.5 mos out and could do my planning thread already, but assuming you wnat me to wait) is in transit to Mexico with no issues with customs/border crossing.


YEAH! Love and prayers for mommy that she makes it all the way with no issues (besides the weather issues she had today).


I am flying to Cabo on Sat for my site visit on 12/20 for 7 days with mom/stepdad, best friends and their 15 mos. baby girl. I am so exicted as this was originally planned as a vacation and now it is a site visit with meetings and tastings with everyone!


I hope you all have such loving and supportive parents. I cannot imagine what it means to be a mother for what my mom is doing for me (over 4000 miles driving).smile123.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
