UGH!!!!!

    Oh, I got my guests to finally start booking by telling them I called the hotel and it's over half full already. Hehe. What they don't know doesn't hurt them.....
    I am going to try and take it all with us. If not, then my parents will take some. I am not too worried about customs (right now anyway). I hope I will be ok. I am trying not to think about it since I already bought everything, but I don't think we will have a problem bring down. I thought about shipping it down to Aruba but it is insanely expensive to ship things down there.

    HA! I love it! I should start tell people that! That should either get them to book or be honest with me if they aren't really going.

      I basicly told my guests that after 6/15 the group rate is not longer available--can't guarentee price or space. Which was mostly true....we where going to release them back to hotel and get my deposits back. Heard from my TA yesterday that there is only one room left in the block we reserved! Yeah!!
      As far as shipping down to mexico, customs etc---there are some very informative threads on here. I won't be shipping anything due to one post I read about them "burning" entire shipment because there was something not allowed. Sounds like taking your chances at customs and having all reciepts is the best bet.

        That's exactly how I feel! I have a feeling some just aren't going, but keep telling us they are. JUST SAY SO!!! :) But hopefully this will spur them into action, whatever that action may be!

        Yeah I'm going to brave it through customs w/ my receipts for the most part. I think I'll ship one box with vases (cheap ones) and some stuff like that. If it doesn't make it then I can deal. :)

          Hey Girls, I just bought a 2nd dress tonight. Its for the ttd I'm set on doing; I bought it on craigslist and when I told the girl what it was for, she begged me to send pics (she had a 2nd dress). as soon as I get pics downloaded, I'll add. its soo different from my dress, much more elegant (mine is more fun). I think I'll take part of the lining out so it is a little lighter weight and cooler.

          I'm going to do cups, first aid/hangover kits and aloe stuff but not food/liquor for the oot bags and plan to take receipts with me. I'm trying to limit how much I have to take down, DW are supposed to be easy after all!!!

          happy weekend all!!

So far (I’m not done yet) we got mini liquor bottles (5 different bottles per bag and we have 12 bags), puzzle books, the bags from Vistaprint, bug repellent wipes, and Advil and Aleve. I still need to get mini sunscreen, mints, small bags of chips and bags of the new M&M Pretzels.

                  Ha, I hope we don’t have an issue with getting everything there. The only other things we need to bring with us (other then our wedding attire) is the sand ceremony frame and vases, the sand, and the favors (personalized playing cards). All the other decorations and things will be at the resort. I have my parents saving their extra suitcases for us if we need it. I know my suitcase will be overflowing with just vacation stuff and my FI’s will be packed too so I will have to have at least one extra suitcase, if not 2.
                  Us too... We have a small group of people coming to the wedding so we thought we go crazy with the gifts. I don't have everything yet since I don't have the total count... bag, beach towel, hand sanitizer, sun screen, etc. We are carrying it all in our bag. I asked my WC about shipping some stuff ahead of time but she didn't recommend shipping boxes to Mexico. In case it gets lost...

                    LOVE the dress Wendy!! I'm on a hunt for the TTD now!!! We're doing it before the wedding and my photographer was so confused at first, until he realized there would be TWO dresses. :)

                      Thanks everyone. Mexico102, its very different from my wedding dress. my dress is much more fun than elegant. heres my original dress: David's Bridal - Strapless Faille Gown with Sweetheart Draped Bodice

                      Runningbride, I've been watching craigslist and bought that dress for about 100!!! it still had the tags. Now I have to stop looking for dresses, I don't need any more.
