    I am getting married at Dreams Tulum in May 2008.
    Should I ship my dress to the resort or bring it on the flight with me? Any recommendations?

      *Definitely* bring it with you. Don't ship it ahead and don't check it with your luggage. Carry it onto the plane with you. If there is space you can hang it in the first class or captain's closet, if there is no space you can lay it across the top of the luggage in the over head bins :o)

        Ditto! The lady at the bridal shop was EMPHATIC about carrying the dress on the plane with you! From what I understand - airlines are usually very accomodating!

          I am bringing EVERYTHING for the wedding on the plane. That includes my dress, veil tiara shoes and fiance's tux. If the luggage is lost or damaged everyting else I can live with and just buy a new bathing-suit and be happy for a few days until its found. If my wedding dress is not there for my wedding day I'm pretty sure I'll just have a hear attack.

            I would be SO afraid to ship my dress... the possiblity of it getting lost or not there in time frightens me!

              No shipping!!! Carry your dress with you on the plane - it can bring you benefits sometimes too when everyone knows you are bride!

                For sure!!! We got tons of attention in the airports and on the plane. The crew even got advice for us from married passengers and announced it on the loudspeaker, plus gave us free champagne. It was sweet :o)

                    definately bring it with it. I just asked my florist about shippinh my flowers (silk) to the resort so I wouldn't have to bring them with me and she said she shipped flowers to a resort years ago and they never made it. She doesn't know where they ended up and she was out all the money.
