    Well, I tried packing some stuff into the one suitcase that I wanted to check. It only held the OOT bag stuff. I still have my maracas, centerpieces, menus, and chair sashes. Looks like I will be checking more than one suitcase.

      this is going to be a nightmare for sure!!! i told my mom we need to get to the airport earlier with all of this luggage! i'll probably end up taking 4 bags plus a carryon and my dress. i'm scared to pack!

        I think I'll wind up putting some stuff w/ my parents bags.  And I think I'll have to buy a huge purse to carry on so I can bring more!

        Ahh I've already been thinking about this and I'm still 11 months out!  Anybody know what Nolitours policy is for brides?  Do they allow you an extra checked bag at no charge?

          I'm too early in my planning to really know how this will play out, but as I plan things over the next several months, I intend to keep this question in mind.  I see how easy it is to get carried away and forget that it all has to be packed.  I don't want luggage fees eating up any $ I save by DIY'ing, so I'm going to keep the decor to a minimum, unless it can be bought in Mexico.  


          Many things I want, we can either be sure to have by buying it here & packing it, or take a chance on only possibly having it by buying it down there (the risk being that we may not find what we're looking for).  Wherever possible, I'm trying to have the 'take a chance' attitude and ok with the possibility of not having whatever it is.  A few things, I'm sure I'll be unwilling to compromise on, but hopefully not several suitcases' worth!

            We both took down two suitcases, and I brought my dress on the plane with me.  As we were checking in, the lady upgraded us when we told her we were getting married, and we flew business class all the way there.  It was amazing.  The extra luggage actually didn't cost as much as I thought it would.  It was only $30 each, and we were expecting to pay like 100.00 each.

              I just got back and as an FYI if you fly first class your first 2 bags are free!

                I have a hard time with taking to much stuff on just normal trips, but this is my wedding. My fiance will try to keep me on a limit of how many bags. I wanted to do sand buckets as part of our OOT bags instead of the bag, but afraid they will take up to much room. My common ground(fiance) will remind of this as I start buying stuff. Hopefully!!

                  how is it bringing a dress on a plane? Did you girls call the airline before hand?

                    I called beforehand and they told me I would have to put it in an overhead bin.  I got to the airport and they told me I would have to put it in an overhead bin.  I got on the plane and they put it in a closet.  I had a heavy dress so it was just a pain to carry through the airports, customs, immigration, etc.   I wouldn't let anyone else carry it either.
