    I bubble wrapped the lanterns and packed them in a duffel bag, which was my husband's carry on.  I carried my dress in a garment bag. We didn't have any problems in customs.

     

    I packed the candles, frames, shells, starfishes, and sand ceremony kit in a luggage which was checked in.  Sadly, the glass on one of my frames broke but it wasn't bad.  The worst was when I realized that the main piece for the Sand Ceremony shattered.  I ended up using the smaller pieces instead.  Be very careful how you package each item if you're considering shipping it over.  Susana did mention that a few brides have shipped materials over and they always arrive to the "Bodas" office.  It's not a big office and I didn't see any closets, so not sure where exactly they would store your goodies.

     

    I hope this helps. Don't hesitate to ask more questions.

    Thanks So much. By chance who did you use for the DJ?

     

    Also, did you pay for your hair and make up or was it included in your package?

      I rented the music equipment and played music from IPhone. My brother-in-law handled playlist.  The 3 hours do go by quickly and we tried to enjoy every moment.  I don't regret my decision.  

       

      We almost considered getting a dance floor but didn't. Again, another decision I don't regret.  The reception is on beach near a hut which had some concrete in front of the bar. Some of my guests liked the sand while others, especially "salseros", preferred the concrete floor. 

       

      My hair and makeup was included with Strawberry Package. They have a book and pages with style ideas that you could choose from. She even had some of the pages of hairstyles that I liked from Pinterest...so they are up-to-date.  I brought my own makeup but also used some from the Spa.  They don't have a huge selection for eyeshadows. It looked like a 12 color palette from Sephora. 

      I did give Maritza a tip...I was very pleased with my look!

       

      My sister has a good close-up.  I'll get it from her and post

        For the ladies that have gotten married there... My fiance just read somewhere that we have to bring passports and have a bunch of paperwork noterized before we get married? What specifically do we need to bring/do for our marriage to be legal here in the US??
