Hey ladies, is anyone or has anyone shipped stuff to the resort for your wedding? I'm not sure if I should ship my welcome bag contents ahead of time or bring with me. Not sure if customs will give me a hard time.
Thx!

I am not planning on shipping anything.  From what I have read it is quite the hassle and the resort is not responsible for your items.  I am just planning on packing my items and bringing them with me.  Which will reduce the stuff I do for them.

Thanks @Sabes44, I was worried about shipping and losing stuff! We'll just pack it with us :)

@Crystal17-You're welcome!  I am afraid of losing stuff too and after reading around and talking to Jessica and our TA, I decided to not chance it.

@Sabes44 and @Crystal17

 

I brought all of my supplies for the Welcome Bags and extra decoration for the reception with me.  I just paid to have an extra bag checked on the way to Mexico.  I think it worked out being less expensive then what it would be if I shipped everything.  I did end up getting the "red light" going through customs when we got into Cancun and they searched all of my bags.  They definitely started to question all of the stuff I had in that suitcase but once I explained I was getting married it was fine.  I would recommend bringing it with you.  I did have papel picado and maracas shipped directly to the resort but that is only b/c they were made in Puerta Vallarta and it was easier to do it that way.  They arrived with no problem.

 

 

I just got home from my honeymoon and am getting settled so I promise I will write an extensive review soon!!

Has anyone used succulents in their bouquets or centerpieces?

I love succulents and wanted to try to incorporate them in my bouquet or centerpieces.  I still haven't decided what I want to do with centerpieces, definitely want to go on the simple side.

@Sabes - just heard back from Jessica who said that including succulents in a bouquet would cost an upgrade fee (from my gold package) of $230-300. They apparently have to be imported, hence the cost. They are beautiful, though.

@upstatekj thanks for the update!  Unfortunately I don't think succulents are worth that much.  Here they are super inexpensive and I love to use them for events because they look great, without the high price tag.  Thanks for getting the information!

@Sabes - Agreed! What colors are you going with, have you decided?
