    Hello ladies! Hope everyone is doing great!!! I'm getting married at Barcelo Maya Palace on April 27, 2013 and I can't wait!!! I have a few questions though, how can I take my dress on the plane?!? Will they let me put it in the closet? Thinking about it stresses me out :/ Also, I don't know what to do about party favors...what will I be able to take on the plane? I was thinking about beach bags filled with sunblock, chapstick, mini maracas, koozies..stuff like that. Will that be a pain and cause problems boarding the plane?

        Hi and congrats! They say that you shouldnt have any problem getting the flight attendents to put your dress in the first class closet if you just ask right before or when you board (it may also lead to an upgrade or a comp drink if they know you're headed out to get married!). As for favors, you can only bring $300 each of stuff (outside of clothing and personal effects) into MX without getting taxed, so bring receipts, keep it under that, and try to buy anything you can there! (It's expensive to ship there too). I am enlisting a bridesmaid or two to check an extra bag for me (I'll pay the charges of course). Hope that helps!

            Congratulations Laura and welcome to the forum!!


            Contacting your airline for more information would not be a bad idea.  They can put your mind at ease and perhaps offer you some extra allowances!  Many of your gift-bag items can be purchased here, perhaps you can enlist a bridemaid to do a quick shopping run with you!  Sunscreen is quite a bit pricier down here so even though it's a bit heavy, that would be the item I would recommend bringing down if you want to save a little.


            The Barcelo is a great resort!!  Here are some recent shots from there:
