Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies...not sure this is the right spot to post this?

This may be a stupid question embarrest.gif but how are all you ladies transporting all your stuff like OOT bag contents, favors, decoration etc....I have so many great ideas but when i add it all up i may need an extra 2 suit cases just to bring it all with me!!! Are you arranging with the WC's at the resort to ship the stuff there? I would worry it would get lost of misplaced?

 

Any help or suggestions or your own experience would be great!! smile159.gif

My assumption is that almost everyone is planning on bringing stuff in extra suitcases.  That is the general sense I get around here.  Maybe ask some of your guests to bring an extra suitcase of your stuff if you reach your baggage limit.

Wedding party and family here.  I didn't even have to ask, they've been offering.  Love my family & friends! :)  Some are even trying to say that my fiance and I shouldn't bring any of the items!

I am still in the begining stages so i dont even know how much of anything I will have but i am already assuming a lot hahaha :) especially since I am reading all these planning journals and i know i have lots of stuff to do :)

These are great ideas.....I will talk to my girls and see how we can split things up! I'm sure my mom and dad wont mind either.

I just wasnt sure if anyone had maybe arranged with the WC at the destinations to ship bigger stuff there but there is so much risk in doing that, i dont think i would want to take that chance personally :S

I know there are some resorts who actually will not accept shipments like that from guests, insurance purposes I guess.  I think the safest bet is to pack everything yourself and distribute it among family, friends, and bridal party in order to get everything there.  Plus, international shipping costs are probably more than an extra airline baggage fee.

Good call!!!!!!! I'm not sure what my airline will charge for extra luggage but you are right, it probably would be less then the international shipping costs!

We are flying WestJet and it is $20 for the first extra bag and $50 each for the 3rd and 4th so since FI and my dad will only have one bag each, that will be 2 extras so I am hoping to fit all of my stuff into the 2 extra bags - it should only cost about $40.  I've heard shipping is in the hundreds so hopefully, I can manage to fit everything into 2 suitcases (worst case scenario -3 suitcases) and the extra baggage fees will stay fairly low!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
