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?
