    Hey ladies. The resort I'm thinking of having my wedding at doesn't have the linens I really want. I'm thinking of renting linens here in NYC where I live and then either shipping down to my aunt in MoBay to use for the wedding or bringing them down to JA myself. Have any of you rented linens, sashes, etc. elsewhere and brought them down for your wedding? Do most resorts allow this?

      A lot of ladies buy their things. It's often cheaper than renting. Check with your resort to make sure they will set your things up (most of them will for no extra charge). If you go here, you will link to a widely used and inexpensive site. Good luck!

        I plan on doing the same thing. I've purchased samples from Wedding Linens Direct and have gotten them in as quick as 2 days! I definitely plan on using them.

            I too have decided to bring my own decor since the resort prices were just too high.

              I am bringing down my table runners, chair sashes and centrepieces.  I used wedding linens direct for the sashes and runners. I'm actually dividing up everything amongst the wedding party and my parents to avoid going over the weight allowance for luggage. It takes some planning ahead of time, but it makes sense to me for everyone to bring a little rather than just my fiance and I bringing a LOT!

                that is a good idea to divide everything up. I have been racking my brain trying to see how i can get all my things to Jamaica. i was thinking of shipping it

                    I thought about doing that too, but was just adding to my list of things to carry. That means more weight for my checked bags. Not sure how amenable you are to this suggestion, but maybe you could ask the resort to rent reception tables that can go bare. Like these below and in this link: http://www.serendipi...ta-photography/. That way, you won't have to worry about linens and things (sorry for the pun, lol). You can just do a runner or nothing at all.

                      I bought some organza table runners off of efavormart.com for 2.19 each. They don't weigh much at all and I think I can line my suitcase with them. I don't want to carry a lot of stuff down there, but I still want it to look great!
