    Soooo... We can't ship anything to the resort so I was just wondering how everyone else is getting the oot bag items to their resorts? FI and I think we are going to just pack everything in a box (all is less than 50lbs) and check it for the additional $25 our airline charges. Is that what everyone else is probably doing too? We figured a box so that we could just pitch it when we got there instead of a suitcase we would have to try and pack on for the trip back..I'm also wondering if we should keep the box and ship the items back like my bouquet (silk), unity sand frame, and cake topper. Shipping back won't be a problem since there will be no food in it. (we couldn't ship there since we have food in our oot bags and they would have to go through customs if shipped)..

      Hi! I am going to check in everything probably in a box so we don't have another suitcase to bring back. We'll fill the OOT bags while we're in Mexico. Congratulations! You have the same wedding date and my matron of honor. :)

        I'm bringing all of our things in a box too. My mom has the bags and I will have everything else.

          Ok cool, yea my airline only charges $25 for each checked item under 50lbs so I think a box is the best way to go. We have mini rum cakes and snacks that we ware putting in our bags so that's why we couldn't ship them ahead of time.


          Thanks ladies, glad to know other people are going to be checking boxes too!!

          I think we will just pack our stuff in our suitcases.  My FI is usually a really light packer so Im planning on using the extra space in his suitcase.  Plus, we only have 16 people coming in total so we won't have as much stuff.

            I'm seriously thinking about mailing some of the stuff down (From Maine to Florida) to our hotel we'll be staying at before getting on the cruise sihp. I just need to make arrangements with the hotel if they'll hold my stuff for a couple of months. At least some of the heavier or bulkier stuff like aloe, notebooks, bubba kegs...


            If not there's going to be something going along in everyone's suitcase! lol
