    so its funny I just found this thread.  Went home to my moms this weekend and she showed me the cake serving set and the toasting flutes that she bought for FI and I for the wedding.  I felt like such a jerk, but I was like "MOM!  How are we going to get those down south?"  Luckily I didnt hurt her feelings too much, we both laughed because she said, I dont know, i was going to give them to you to bring down.  I talked her into returning them or giving them to someone else for their wedding.

     

    Its sooo not worth the hassle.  (plus they were VERY frufru-shishi.... not my style at ALL)  I like to keep it simple, thats why we HAD the destination wedding to begin with!

     

    Unfortunately i didnt know how to break it to her that a white satin wedding album is not really my style either.  sooooo I will have to bite the bullet on that one.  But seriously, white satin??? will people need to wear gloves to look at our wedding album????  I mentioned that it would be hard to keep clean and that it would get dusty, and she told me that I had to keep it in the box????? OR i could wash it.  How does one wash a photoalbum???  LOL.  gotta love mom-logic!

      Don't you just love moms?  lol!

       

      I was just thinking about this.  I have no idea if my resort has cake cutting sets or if I need to bring some down with me.  Do you ladies know if most resorts have them?

        I hope my resort provides them because that is one thing I do not want to bring down!!  My list of things to bring is starting to get pretty long!!!

          I purchased my own flutes and cake server set and had no issues when I put it in our luggage.  Tip - keep it in it's original box and travel with it like, they shouldn't break.  I found a Lenox set at Macys for $15 each.

              I'd be shocked if a resort did NOT have champagne flutes and cake cutters. Weddings aside, resorts serve champagne/sparkling wine and cake during the normal course of business.
               

              But now that I think of it, it's always better to ask and be sure than to assume!

                  I was thinking the same thing but if I didn't check, I know that would be on my mind constantly!

                    I want to bring ours.. We're not planning on packing our OOT bags. going to give them to our guests at the air port so this frees up a lot of space!

                      Another thing to put on the list to ask the resort, but I assume they'll have one.  As we bought so much stuff for the OOT bags, I'm getting one more thing I have to pack!
