How much is your wedding going to cost on average? Did you receive any perks or incentives to book here? Thanks for the help!!

        So we leave for Mexico in 34 days and I am starting to figure out how to pack.  I am nervous.

         

        Besides our clothes we need to bring down...

         

        -My bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, and corsages/boutonnieres 

        -Sand and sand ceremony kit

        -Wine stopper favors

        -Beach towels for OOT bags

        -20 Embroidered OOT bags

        -Sunglasses for OOT bags

        -All of the other contents of the OOT bags

        -Welcome letter, itinerary, guest book mad libs cards, and programs

        -Cake Topper * "I Do" letters

        -Starfish place cards

        -Menus

        -Gown, jewelry, shoes, etc.

        -Kevin's wedding day attire

         

        I think that's it but it's very overwhelming!  We are also flying US Air direct but we will have to pay for our bags, I believe, so that sucks.  I am hoping I can do it by Kevin, myself, my mom, and my dad all taking an extra bag.  I will check the boxes that the favors and beach towels are in.  They will count as bags...then I will try to get the rest of the things in two bigger suitcases.

         

        My main concern are my flowers.  Does any one have any suggestions on how to bring down silk/real touch bouquets?  I don't want to check them in a suitcase for fear they will get tossed around and ruined, but I will if I have to.  I thought about putting them all in a carry on bag.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I can't believe how soon my wedding is!

          Mariposaazul,

           When did you get confirmation on the outside vendor fee?  I also booked Del Sol and they are attempting to throw up roadblocks against it at Dreams... Booooooo!

            Mariposaazul,

             I was wondering when you got confirmation from the resort regards the outside photographer fee?  I also booked with Del Sol and Dreams is attempting to throw up roadblocks to prevent it. Boooo!!!

                We booked through Liberty Travel.  We didn't receive an incentive, but we toured the resort and loved it!  We are booked in the honeymoon suite because we had enough people book through our TA for an upgrade.  Our first invoice said $9,900...but it will be added to.  I am thinking we can do it for $12,000 max but that doesn't include our week long stay.  :)  Hope I helped!  Check out my videos:

                  2. is anyone bringing their own bottles? are you bringing colored sand?

                  3. will it travel ok? can you bring sand back into the US?

                   

                  As much as i'd like to order some commemorative bottles for our sand with our name and wedding date, i'm not too sure how i feel about bringing that back to the States.


                  We actually didn't bring our own sand or our own glass vase for the sand ceremony.  In fact when we went over all of the details with Yamina we never brought up the sand ceremony.  They just threw it in.  The day after at the pool I remember someone asking me if I get to take it home with me and I said, "I guess not since we don't have it." But the next day it was in our room and they had sealed it for us :) We just wrapped in in a bunch of clothes and it was fine.  I think if you want a specific one then I would bring it.

                     This is great, thanks!

                    I was JUST browseing hourglasses online and thinking of buying one. Now, I may wait until after we get home so I don't risk breaking it (i would) and just go with whatever the resort has.
