    Is anyone shipping items to your resort for the wedding? I'm trying to debate if it would be cheaper to get all of my decorations here or go with the ones at the resort. Thanks!

      I think that I'm going to bring mine with me. I've read quite a few posts and it seems like most people have been bringing their decorations with them because it ends up being cheaper. I think that most airlines allow passengers to have two luggage per person so I'll probably ask some of my guests if they mind taking an extra bag if they only have one.

        I hear the issue with shipping your decorations to the D.R. is they often get stopped at customs.  From there they sometimes do or DO NOT get to their final destination.   If you do get your stuff from customs, there is a good chance not all of it will be there.  It's well know that things often go missing on the trip to your wedding resort!


        I am bringing mine down with me.  I have secured some family members to help!  Also, you'll have to claim your stuff at customs (and pay).  If you don't and you happen to get stopped they will take it all from you because it's unclaimed.



        It's sort of a pain in the butt... but it would stink if you paid all this money for things and then customs takes them - - Well, I guess we'll all figure it out

            wait why do you have to claim them if you don't live in the DR and it is just part of your luggage?? Also, how much does this cost to claim it?

              Everything fit in my luggage - we were charged extra as we were overweight luggage wise but it that was it.

              If you are concerned about having to claim anything, make sure you bring all your receipts to prove that everything was purchased in the country where you live
