Shipping direct to your hotel

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I am just wondering if anyone has or is planning to ship some of their items (favours etc) ahead of travel direct to the hotel in order to avoid having to haul it with you onto the plane? Is this something that we should plan to do or should I be weary of the items making it to the hotel?

Can anyone give me insight on this?

 

thanks!

From what I understand shipping it down to the resort carries some risk. From what I have heard if you have items made in china they will be taxed and they are hefty fees, and I think it is expensive to actually ship them to begin with. One bride I was reading have to pay to ship the boxes back to her house which was $216, but the taxes were like 1000 or something crazy. We are checking lots of bags!

Woah! I never thought of that, but I should have considering sometimes I get hit with crazy duty fees at my door when I order items online that are manufactured in China. (SO annoying) I think I'll inquire to see how much an extra bag will be... Just such a pain because it will be empty on the way home - what do you do about that?

agreed.  Check a lot of bags as it will be cheaper and less headache. Just enlist family members/friends to help out!

You could always stuff the biggest empty suitcase with smaller ones.  I agree that it's annoying, but I suppose it's better than getting caught off guard with a bunch of taxes and fees!

One of the BDW brides had posted that she had bought large hard plastic totes from Walmart on clearance and wrapped them with packing tape and the airline didn't even charge her for them!! And then she just left them at resort since they were so cheap she didn't even bother bringing them home.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
