What did you do with your stuff after the wedding?

Recommended Posts

Most of the stuff that we are taking down there we won't have to bring back, like the OOT bags and the wedding favors. I will be bringing back my wedding dress, but I probably leave my TTD dress, as my Mom is making it to be a light-flowy dress that slightly resembles my wedding dress. As for the table decorations, we might take runners and then just have tealights and shells or something. If my Mom makes chair ties, we will probably bring them back to. Oh yeah, and the cake topper that we ordered and got yesterday!!! It is laser engraved with our names, wedding date, and a tropical scene and then lights up from the bottom. I love it!!!!

We left almost everything! We had planned to bring some of the stuff back (lanterns), but our resort was small and they loved our stuff. I know future weddings will have my stuff used, so that is pretty cool :)

Along these lines, I plan on using old suitcases to transport our OOT and other wedding items. Then I'm leaving the actual suitcases there too. Less to haul on the way home! And now that many airlines are going to be charging for the 2nd checked bag, it should save a little $

I looked into shipping items to the resort ahead of time and was advised against it. There is no guarantee you are going to get the items and its quite expensive.

 

I left all my stuff there (except the wedding dress) I really have no need for 100+ tea lights and bags and bags of rosepettals :-)

Shipping is tricky - trust me I learned from experience. We shipped some items by FedEx (who were great!), but customs removed some of our items because they were made in China. All in all, we only lost about $50 of stuff, but the headache that accompanied it wasn't worth it!

We are planning to get some insuated mugs with a logo on it for all the guests in their OOT bags, and we were going to ship them down, but with the cost and the chance they may not get there, we decided that we will give them to everyone before we leave. We will give some of them out a few days before we leave, and others at the airport. Each person taking one mug isn't as bad as us hauling them all down.

As for decorations down there, we aren't taking that many. The bigger, bulkier things (besides my dress and my daughter's dress) will be the OOT bags and the wedding favors. I haven't decided on the centre pieces for in the DR but they will be something small and easy to pack. I am also waiting to hear back from the WC as to what they have for decorations.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
