    OK, so I am in the initial stages of planning our fabulous DW in Costa Rica. Needless to say, I have become obsessed with this blog (and others). I am a planner at heart so I don't want to start any projects until I can figure out how I am going to get it to Costa Rica - it's a control thing. How are you getting your DIY projects, accessories, decorations to you destination, and the ever growing OOT bags. Are you distributing amongst friends or sending it down early or buying it there. The real question is - how many bags is too many?

      I am bringing an extra bag with us with everything in it. I dont want my friends/family to bring it because I want to put the OOT bags together before they arrive. I dont want to ship it because I am paranoid it wont arrive or something will happen in transit. So needless to say I am taking an extra checked bag (hopefully not two) myself. That just my opinion. I know some have had friends/family help. What airline are you taking? Maybe see what their baggage limits are.

        I distributed some of my stuff but let me tell you- this was my least favorite part of travelling. I hated carrying the wedding dress- my hubby carried it most of the time for me. We only had one bag each plus the dress. I would NOT do any more than that. It's a pain and why pay for more?

        I gave my mom all the wedding parties clothes to take in a carry on. She also took some tealight holders and my pashminas. It helped a bunch for her to have some empty suitcase space. I would just communicate with people about that.

          If you figure something out...let me know. I do not pack lightly. I am the "bag lady!"

            If people are leaving from your area I would ask them to save from space for you in their bag and then just pack some stuff in there.
            I wouldn't wait to buy things down there, last time I went I had never been to that resort before and we ended up being so secluded so I couldn't do much shopping at all.

              You can try shipping the items. The amount the airlines will charge for your extra bag or over weight bag will probably be more than the cost to ship the items. Good luck
