Getting your OOT Bag there

Recommended Posts

We thought about shipping too. It seems so much easier, but the cost to ship everything international (to Mexico) is so expensive.

 

I think we are going to get some cheap luggage/bags and just pay the extra baggage fee going there and just leave the empty bags behind.

We are also carrying all of our items with us. We are not allowed to ship anything and the resort and the island do not recommend it at all. I think your best bet would be to keep it simple and easy to carry!

those who said you get 2 free checked bags -- which airlines are you flying on? I didn't think any of the big airlines offered free checked bags anymore (except southwest, but I don't think they fly there)

After reading this i am very sure I will stop shopping. My friend offered to bring the koozies down for me. The bags themselves take up so much space that I'm not re-considering the real touch flowers i was planning on. I just don't want to lug so much stuff. Definitely buying my OOT contents in Mexico. there is a walmart in Playa del Carmen so that should work. I'll bring a list of things to buy, thanks to all of you!!

I flew Delta to Mexico last summer and we got 2 free checked bags. I don't think the baggage fees apply to international flights, but not positive on that.

I think you would be taking a risk in shipping them there. We are going to carry ours on..somehow. We have been asking people in our wedding party if they would take bits and pieces for us! :-)

I would be worried about shipping the stuff and I don't really want to lug everything with me...so I think I'm going to have a little get together about a month before we leave to give everyone their bags and send out the bags to those who don't live in the area.

 

I'm hoping that this will get them excited for the trip and prevent them from buying some of the items themselves.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
