My travel agent advised against it and at the time, so did Ana. Things can sit in customs, get kicked around and are easily lost plus it can be extreamly expensive to ship something with the gurantee it'll be there on time. Ana told me they have no way of securing what is sent and it may very well be used in another brides wedding if its seens as available...whatever that means but I woulndn't risk it! Just ask everyone to pus something in their carry on and get some hard case suitcases

I am seriously bummed though because Yamina told me the Barracuda Bar would be perfect for welcome cocktails. Um no, it closes at 6. She confirmed today. What does our invitation say? 7 at the Barracuda Bar. I am confused as to why she'd suggest it in the first place, but whatever! We will have to correct it in our welcome letter.
We also ordered a heart shaped sand ceremony vase and cork bowl set from Wedding Star. It's engraved with our initials and date. I LOVE IT. Also got 7 cameras for the reception tables and bridal party tank tops from etsy. I feel like I get a wedding surprise in the mail every day, I love it!!
Question about shipping - how many of you are shipping things to the resort? Honestly, I'd like to just pack them so I know they're with me, but I'm nervous about checking all the extra baggage.
I am nervous to ship because if something [like our sand for the ceremony or artificial flowers] gets stuck at customs, we're beat...we wouldn't have it. Thoughts on this?
