    I am going to have everyone going down bring a few things and the stuff for the wedding day will be in their carry on bags. I am also a fan of the vacuum bags. I used this summer when I went to Europe. The worked great to add more room but it will add more weight to the bag.

      I love the idea of vacuum sealing the items.

        OH WOW!! I guess shipping things down aren't a good idea....I guess I will have to convince the fiance that it's a bad deal. Thanks for the input ladies! As always, you have probably saved me the added STRESS! You all ROCK!! :)

            I completely forgot about Vacuum Seal bags!  That is a GREAT idea. Thanks!

              I shipped everything for our OOT bags and 4 of the 5 boxes have arrived to our hotel safely - the other 1 box (of course the one with the bags and welcome cards) got stuck in customs

              We worked with Fed Ex and they said the reason it is stuck is bc it contains travel sized medicines - we included Tylenol and Alka Seltzer - and apparently you need a special medical waiver to allow that into the country - ahhhh!!!

              So, thank goodness my dad is also a licensed customs broker and he spoke to Fed-ex and they want to discard the medicines in order for the box to be delivered. I'm ok with that but I'm affraid about the other more important things in the box!!!!

              We are now waiting to hear back from our wedding coordinator to let us know when she receives the box, to open it and let us know the contents - thank goodness we forwarded her the packing list to double check - and thank goodness i still have 3 weeks til my wedding so if stuff needs to be replaced it can be brought down.

               

              if i would have known this before we shipped the boxes, i would have kept those things in my luggage!

                      You shouldn't have an issue with bringing it down with you - make sure you divide it up between a few people just in case.

                       

                      Our box finally arrived last week to our wedding coordinator and the only things missing were the alka seltzer and tylenol - so we bought them again and divided them up for everyone to pack :)

                      Hopefully all goes well!
