    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!!!!

      Speaking of shipping items to the destination, does anyone know what the costs involved are? How much and what type of items have you ladies shipped ahead of time?

        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.
