For those that brought decor down with them

Recommended Posts

I will try not to have a lot of "extras" with me, but I was planning to put it all in a suit-case.

For most of the stuff I don't even have receipots anymore. sad.gif

I travelled with Sunwing and split up the decor and OOT bag items among my immediate family members. Regardless, I ended up spending almost $700 on extra weight charges! $20/kilo adds up very quickly. No one asked me for receipts, either in Toronto or in Punta Cana. My advice - if you have a lot of items, split it up amongst MANY of your guests so as to lighten the load. There isn't anything I regret bringing, and my guests loved the OOT bags, I just wish I had split up the load better.

Same as some of the other girls, I am dispersing all of my decorations out for our close family to help carry. As long as you mark down who is carrying what and that they have receipts for those items, it shouldn't be much of an issue.(hopefully)

I haven't been saving my receipts either but I will definitely start!! 

Once again, I cannot express enough of how much I appreciate all of you ladies and your great advice.

Lol - that is exactly what I was thinking but at $20.00/kilo (2.2lbs) I could see how it would add up fast.

I have already started to let people know that I will be "using them". Also for carryon's the often don't weigh our here, so you may have a little more wiggle room.

I am shipping my stuff down ahead of time to the resort. It was suggested by my WC, I'm getting married at a Dreams resort, so that might be resort specific. When I asked how to ship it, they just told me to make sure it was "packed well" because customs can be tricky.

I have also heard that there are problems in customs not just because of the content (i.e. sand, shells, etc) but that most of the time it is multiples. I was told to but a note on top of the items inside the package saying "not for resale / wedding decorations". I'll be adding my receipts into the boxes I ship, too. Can't be too careful!
