Lol! Decisions decisions!

    yikes, are you going to wanna lug those things around especially without wheels??!! You can find luggage at goodwill for about the same price as a tote and if you don't want to bring it home, you're not really at much of a loss!

          NO extra charge but must fall in these limits. 

          Piece:2pieces
          Weight:Each piece must not weigh more than 23 kg (50 lbs.)*.
            Size:
          The total linear dimensions for each piece of baggage shall not exceed 203 cm (80 in.) derived by adding the height, width and length

                Be sure to bring receipts ladies.  You cannot bring more than $300 worth of "gifts" into Mexico per person.  I was stopped by customs and they went through both of my bags and my mom's bag.  They asked what the total value of the merchandise was in each bag.  They never asked me for my receipts, but I have heard of other brides who have had to produce them.  It was not stressful or a big deal since I was prepared with the receipts, but if I hadn't had them I probably would have been freaking out!

                    And thanks for the advice! I'm keeping all my receipts in a file folder. Would we include our decor in what they consider $300 worth though?? Hmmm...they're not gifts.
