Any Canadian brides ever ship their OOT bag stuff to the USA?

Recommended Posts

Hi All;

 

Unlike many of you, my actual wedding is going to be taking place in Florida. We're from Nova Scotia, Canada. And I have been troubled with the idea of all my OOT bag stuff and where I'm going to put it and how many family and friends' luggages I will have to practically take over to fit all the stuff into. I also really and truly want to have the guests get their bag delivered to their cabin on the cruise ship, I don't want to give it before we leave or at a welcome dinner or anything like that.

 

So my mother suggested shipping a few boxes down to Florida (probably to the hotel we'll be staying at the night before we get on the cruise ship, making arrangements with them beforehand of course) well in advance of when we leave. Now I know most people don't ship their stuff to their weddings because it is in Mexico or Jamacia or somewhere like that and it might get stuck at the border or whatever, but I'm wondering has anyone ever shipped from Canada to the US? Would it be ridiculously expensive (I mean I'm willing to pay some but not hundreds of dollars) to get a couple of boxes of my stuff to the US.

 

Do you think there would be a problem?

 

Also, I'm planning a trip to the US in August and again in November, but to Maine, which is still quite a ways from Florida, but at least I could ship from within the US to the US if you guys think that will save me any? Or is that even legal? lol confused.gif Plus the hotel would have to save it for months, i'd have to really trust the hotel I guess. And that's IF they'd even do it.

 

Any feedback would be appreciated! embarrest.gif

I'm not sure exactly all the logistics about it or the price.  You should probably contact the hotel to even see if they would store your things until you got there.  Plus you would hate to risk if Canada Post went on strike again and your stuff never made it down there in time for your wedding.  Its probably just safer to take it with you, as much of a pain in the butt that is.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
