    Has anyone talked to Emeline about shipping items to the Hilton prior to the wedding?

      Hi,

      I have spoke to Emeline about shipping and she confirmed to use DHL and ship items 1 month prior. I will confirm this with her next week at our appointment!

        Sorry, I guess I'm not good at explaining it. Maybe Tammy can help?

          Regarding shipping, I've been given the impression that DHL is the best option but it is very expensive and you still run the risk of items not arriving. Customs can be a pain. My Dad works for Federal Express. I had him explore that option, but the person he talked to in his office advised us not to risk it.

          I'm flying Continental and called the airline last week. See their baggage policies below. Regarding my 2 checked bags, I've resolved to pay for the extra weight and/or pay the $100 to bring another checked bag. Also, I'm asking some of my family and friends to carry items for me.

          Wrapped Packages

          Due to higher security levels at airports worldwide, gifts and packages are subject to the same inspection as your carry-on baggage. To reduce delays at the airport security checkpoint Continental recommends that you travel with your packages unwrapped. This will allow for easy inspection, if necessary.
          Carry-on Bag

          Continental will permit one bag plus one personal item (see below) per passenger to be carried on the aircraft.
          The maximum combined linear measurement (L + W + H) of the carry-on bag is 51 inches (130 cm). The maximum weight of the carry-on bag is 40 pounds (18 kg).
          Personal items

          In addition to the one carry-on item, you may bring free-of-charge the below items:
          ·one small personal article such as a briefcase, purse, day planner, small laptop computer, camera case, compact disk player or similar sized personal entertainment item

          ·personal aid devices such as wheelchairs, braces, canes, crutches, prosthetic devices and walking sticks, provided passenger is dependent on them.

          ·one infant article such as a collapsible stroller, a diaper bag or a government approved child seat.



          Economy Class Free Baggage Acceptance

          ·2 Checked Bags: Maximum 50 lbs (23 kg) and 62 linear inches (157 cm) (total length + width + height) per piece.
          ·2 Boxes instead of two free checked bags: Maximum 50 lbs (23 kg) and 62 linear inches (157 cm) (total length + width + height) per piece
          Boxes are accepted on a voluntary separation and limited liability basis only (space available only, in good condition and labeled). Boxes are not accepted on Expressjet Airlines, Inc. dba Continental Express ExpressJet destinations to the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico. Continental Airlines shall not be liable for damage to boxes and their contents



          Bags in excess of 50lb (and under 70lb) = extra $25 charge



          Excess bags (3rd checked bag) = $100 per piece

            Just be careful because during some times of the year there are "Excess Baggage Embargos" which will limit (or in some cases not allow at all) extra baggage.

            For example here's the Continental Airlines Excess Baggage Allowance Embargo Dates:
            April 7, 2006 - April 19, 2006
            June 4, 2006 - August 31, 2006
            November 15, 2006 - January 15, 2007

            Here's the link: http://www.continent....e/embargo.aspx

            ...I imagine the dates for 2007 will be similar. BUT not all airlines do this. Delta and Continental are notorious for these embargoes (I book a lot of international travel with excess baggage for my job) but American, Alaskan, Mexicana and AeroCalifornia don't really seem to do this at all.

              I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the tip!

                I think with your October wedding you would be fine anyway. How exciting - we've finally entered the month of your wedding!

                  Yes, I'm getting super excited now!
                  I have to say that Emeline has gotten progressively more helpful and quicker on response times as the wedding approaches. I think (hope) that bodes well for us working together once I arrive...
