I think for packing purposes it might be better to assemble my bags once in Cabo but I don't want to waste vacation time putting OOT bags together. Can't decide what to do.

Packing wise, it was easier to wait to assemble bags until we arrived in Mexico.  We arrived a few days before the majority of our guests arrived.  So, I "started" them the first evening I was there, prior to bedtime.  I was so excited to be there and to do it that I worked on adrenaline and completed them all.  I put them in different parts of the room based on our guests arrival dates.  I had packed things in a very organized way that I was able to work in an assembly-line manner.


Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.

      I'm concerned too about getting it all to St. John USVI. I have included bottle of sunscreen, bug spray and little nips of liquor. My wedding planner has agreed to accept boxes for me if I ship them ahead, but I'm concerned about regulations regarding aerosol and liquor. Anyone have experience?

      That's exactly what I am going to do. I figure I can even stay up really late the first night taking care of this. I'm sure I won't be able to sleep anyways because I will be so excited about everything lol

          So sorry to those ladies who have posted awhile ago, I'm bad at checking back here on a normal basis.  Thank you for all the compliments.  I put together my survival kit at home, but everything else I put together once we got there.  It seemed to take up less space when I could pack it tight instead of worrying about crushing the bags.

           

          Jenn4285 - all my labels in my bag were the stickers, if that helps :)
