How much Luggage?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

I was wondering how much luggage you guys are taking? I saw a few threads that people had 6 suitcases and I couldn't even think of what I would put in 6 suitcases.

 

Please let me know if I am completely forget items that should be going with me on a 8 day trip. Are you traveling with any decorations or shipping them prior?

 

Thnx

I think a lot of what people have in those 6 suitcases is stuff they are bringing down for the wedding, not just clothes, etc. I will likely have a ton as I'm bringing down all my bouquets, centerpieces (huge), OOT bags and programs, etc. I can't even imagine how many I will have. Maybe 10huh.gif

I'm trying to travel with as little as possible because I am afraid with three flights we will be missing something once we get there. I am planning on one carry on suit case that my faince can carry since I will have my dress. Then checking two big suit cases. We are going to NYC on the way back from the Carribean so we need winter clothes too (November wedding). I am hoping to give his mom and my mom stuff to take with them if need be. I'm stressed just thinking about it!

I just returned from my wedding one week ago today. I was there for 12 days and had 7 suitcases, a laptop and a large carry on bag and my dress.

 

I gave 2 suitcases to my bridesmaids and we took 5.

 

I brought down OOT bags and stuff for them, paper lanterns, candles, real touch flower bouquets and centerpiece flowers, bouts & corsages. I brought down all the guest book table stuff and menu's, programs, etc.

 

So be prepared if you plan to bring a lot down, it was fine, not too expensive and it all worked out, nothing broke, nothing lost, nothing questioned!

I will have a ton of stuff to take also. We are staying in Mexico for 2 weeks, so in addition to traditional vacation packing, I anticipate that we will be taking the following items for the wedding:

- OOT bags and contents

- flowers: bouquets, bouts, altar decor, corsages...

- wedding attire

- decor: chair sashes, table runners, centerpieces,...

- programs and fans

 

The plan is to purchase some durable plastic containers (think, Rubbermaid) for the wedding stuff. We will just secure them well and dispose of them after use. There is NO WAY I'm shipping anything. I've read horror stories on here about things getting lost, damaged, or delayed. We plan to divide the containers up amongst the WP and family to defray the cost for extra baggage and decrease the hassle in customs. Wish us luck!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
