these are so cute...im going to look into it! im just worried about how much its going to cost to get down there because I dont know if we'll be able to fit everything we plan on brining in our 2 suitcases and be under weight....its giong to be tuff...i dont want to sacrifice bringing clothes! lol 

 

 

 

 

Check if your airline offers a higher weight allowance for the bride and groom. I think we get an extra 10kg. Also we are thinking of sending some of our oot bag stuff with my brother. He's only taking one suitcase for himself so that leaves me a whole suitcase to fill with wedding stuff ;)

We actually will both have our carry on bags, and each do a checked bag as well. My to be mother in law and her boyfriend will be traveling with us too, so I guess we can spread some items out if need be with them as well.

Im pretty sure I usually take 2 suitcases and a carry on when i travel, but each airline is different so just check their website and it should tell you baggage allowances. And on my invoice it just says 10kg extra weight allowance for bride and groom. Not sure if it's each bag or not. Good question - I'll have to ask my TA and I'll let you know what she says. It also says 50% off weight overages for the group so I guess that means they only pay half of the fee if their luggage is overweight.

I had no idea!  I'm going to look into it, I've never heard of a bride and groom getting weight allowances!!!!  This would be incredible.  Does your lfight leave on a Friday morning to?  We get into Jamaica by early afternoon and we can start drinking, hahahha!

The weight allowance really depends on the airline. Be sure to check your ticket etc as well (even after you check with the agent/airline). Sometimes when a plane does a double pick up (ie. when we went to Cuba from Toronto we were allowed 2x20kg bag + 5kg carry on, but people traveling on the same plane from Montreal only had 1x20kg bag + carry on). You can always pre-arrange extra luggage, this way it will definately cost you less. Make sure you do it for return as well - never know about the gifts,souvenirs etc).

Yes our flight leaves in the morning and it's direct. I'm pretty excited we will actually get to enjoy some of the day at the resort.

AshleyL - what time does your flight leave for going home?  Ours isnt until 7:30 which I am super happy about, that way we get to spend more time on the beach before we leave!

Hey all! Wanted to post about a couple other cute items that should be fairly inexpensive to do for a thank you bag. My fiance and I are talking about making our own "favorite jamaican recipies" book to add in the bags! The cover could be really cute and personalized and we even though about renaming the receipies to make it more personalized! You could print the recipies/pics out off the comp, and get some type of smaller bound booklet (maybe one of those tiny scrap books) to add them into! Also, thought about making a personalized CD with our favorite jamaican hits!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
