Anyone ship Wedding stuff to ROR?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out what are my options for getting decorations and OOT items to Jamaica. Has anyone shipped their things to ROR? If you took your stuff on the flight with you, how difficult was that? Was the transfer bus able to accomodate the items? Any help is greatly appreciated.

From what i've read, most brides have taken thier stuff down with them. What you have to consider is the cost to ship vs the cost of being over weight. I would check with your airline and see what limits you have and weight that aganist shipping cost. I would think shipping is gonna be expensive unless you have a hookup.

I had posted a very similar question about a month ago. People that responded said they brought their items in luggage, or gave it to family to bring down in their luggage. I did a quick comparison of my own for shipping versus flying.

 

I am traveling U.S. Air, which charges $15 for the first checked luggage, and $25 for the 2nd through 5th. Checked luggage can be up to I think 45 pounds. I did an estimate of a 50 lb box going from Boston to Ocho Rios, and both UPS and FedEx had the cost coming in anywhere from $310 - $425 dollars. Though I think it is going to be a SUPREME hassle to bring everything down while traveling with my kids, it is definitely cheaper.

Keep in mind that some resorts won't let you ship things down because of the responsiblitiy and the lack of storrage space.

We're going to bubble wrap the heck out of our glass ware, centerpieces, and stuff them into "pilot suitcases" to carry on with us.
