Elissae, how are you planning on transporting all the items? Carry on plane or shipping to resort?
Everything you have done looks fabulous!
My resort indicated that I should bring everything there personally. They will not take deliveries of provisions, plus there is no guarantee it will get there with customs and all. I feel more comfortable taking it there myself, too. (Well, not lugging it all - hahaha).
Yes, I believe it's $300 per person in customs. I am traveling that day with my FI, his son, and 2 other couples so I think I can separate it well enough. I am planning on packing extra suitcases with all the wedding provisions. Right now I am thinking 2 but there may be 3 (in addiiton to my gown and my own personal suitcases' with clothes, etc!) Some of our friends donated old suitcases to us that they no longer need/want. I plan to leave them in Play a del Carmen when we come home. I may leave a note with the maid to either keep them or give away/throw away/donate.
