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.

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!
