    All I know is Westjet. If the bag is over the weight limit they make you take stuff out. There was one lady in front of me who was moving. She was over, so right in the front of the line, she had to take items out and switch suitcases. I believe the weight limit is to protect workers.

    Can you give a suitcase or two to someone else to bring on for you?

    Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

      The first year I went to the DR, we flew air canada vacations, there were alot of people who were charged for being over weight. Have you considered flying first class? They allow you more weight! :)

        We flew with Air Canada vacations through Toronto as well, and you're allowed 2 checked bags at a max weight of 50 lbs each. We were slightly over (about 1-4 lbs) and they didn't bug us. I did make sure they saw me carrying my wedding dress just in case that helped them 'let us go'! Lol! As for business class (AC vacations doesn't have first), I think they were just allowed an extra bag with the same weight restrictions. We had extra bags and we just got our friends flying with us to check them.

          I had every wedding item you could imagine in my suitcase, candles, silver candle holders, silk flowers, tiara, cake toppers, etc) and nothing got removed during customs checks.
