Traveling with the Decorations?!

PLUS all the clothing I need for a week!
I already told Jay he had to give up one of his suitcases and my dad probably will too. Poor guys!

We aren't doing a site visit. I am starting a PhD program in a few months and I don't think I have the time or money to do one.

I think we had at least 8 bags/boxes of wedding crap. That's why I would recommend to other brides to not go overboard with DIY stuff. Just bring down what is absolutely necessary.

It's true that you can ship some things over. Sometimes letting go of control will save you uber stress down the road, but I hear ya, I'm a control freak too! I might bring some stuff on my site visit that if it does go missing then I can live without. Also, keep in mind the things you might be able to get while you're there. If there is a Walmart or Costco or something near by you might be able to get some of the stuff there. And like Christine said, some of the other brides may have left some stuff behind that the wedding coordinator can supply.

My starfish are what I am concerned about. I think I can get them cheaper online than buying them there on the beach...

I will have a couple of my family members take down a box of votives each since they are heavy. I wish I could've just purchased there or trusted my planner's pricing and just had her provide.

It looks like I will still have one big suitcase full of stuff, but that means I'll have an empty suitcase to pack with souveniers on the return trip!!

Anyway, it can be done. We severely limited the clothing and toiletries we brought. But, my 2 1/2 suitcases of wedding stuff surprisingly fit everything: 6 parasols, 24 chinese lanterns, 95 luminarias, 14 placecard candles and their holders, sand ceremony vessel and 3 pouring vessels, stuff for all out OOT bags (that was one whole suitcase in itself- they were ridiculously full), programs, menus, fans, small chinese lanterns for the tables, table runners, etc....Mariana said she'd never seen so much stuff!
