yeah, check out the pricing from where you are, but I know international was just crazy. and since it's food, it may be even more difficult to ship with dry ice. Maybe you have one for him before you leave, or right when you get back?

all of a sudden my FMIL has offered to pay for a DJ for us. so now I get to do the legwork to find out which of the resort's DJs are available (if any), then go through all the song choices and such. it was easier when my FI was doing the iPod! lol not to sound ungrateful - I'm really excited about it. I think it'll make the event even more memorable and fun for our guests. I just wish she could have mentioned this a few months ago rather than 6 weeks out...

      You can get quotes from the traditional shippers like UPS, FedEx and DHL, but I think your best bet may be to work with an importer/exporter. I know when I checked rates to ship a decent sized box to Mexico, it was around $500. yeah, I'll just check a couple of extra pieces of luggage..

       

       

      AHHHH!!! It scares me to think about it in days, so I just keep saying "two months, two months, two whole months..."

      Our RSVP deadline was yesterday, but there are at least two dozen people we're following up with. If things stay the same, we're at 115 adults, 8 kids under five!
       
      Anyone using a videographer? Our family wants us to add video...

      we aren't doing video, but I've heard that Mike Cantrell from Cancun Wedding Video does good work. I sent his link to my photog and she was impressed with his samples.
