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

    This may be a stupid question  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!!

      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!

                 

                Thanks ladies! this forum rocks my world hahaha you ladies are awesome

                  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!

                    I know with Canjet you can pay around $80 and upgrade to your seat to their "Select" service through their website and get an extra 10 kg of baggage.
