    That's a tricky one. Could you spread them out among family and/or bridal party members? I assume they are too big and too many to fit in you and your fiance's luggage/carry-on. Also, I would go the carry-on route. They are beyond rough with luggage. I had a travel perfume bottle get broken :( when I took it with me on my scouting trip.

      @Wedding2014 I actually rented vases from my florist for my welcome reception. It ended up being same price as what I bought them for and then I didn't have to worry about shipping all that glass down to mexico. The resort and local florists have diff types of vases available to rent. Otherwise I would say to wrap them in bubble wrap and pack in a few duffle bags. If you send a picture toa  local florist they can tell you if they have that type of vase( which they prob) do and if you do the math on it it prob comes out cheaper because you don't have to pay to check all those bags. Just a thought...

      I can give you the name of my florist if you want. She's great to work witha nd has accomodated all my requests within a graet price.

      orrrr you can do what @vanessav53 suggested! LOLOL  :lol:

       

      @vanessav53 - do you mind sending me your florist's information?  I want really tall glass cylinders to the line the aisle for my ceremony & may try to pick up and bring in flowers to add to my centerpiece set up. Thanks for the great info!

        @girlinthecity97 her name is Alina she is from Floreria Riviera. Website is: www.FloreriaRiviera.com and her email is: info@floresrivieramaya.com

         

        She has been so helfpul and has great very competitive prices. I am renting tall cylinder vases from her for centerpieces for my welcome reception ( I am putting seashells in them with water) Send her pictures if you have and also how tall you want the vases. She likely will have them but the more description the better she can help you. She is VERY responsive and her english is great. I am happy I am using her. I am using her for my centerpieces for the wedding as well as she was MUCH cheaper than the resort florist.

         

        Let me nkow if you need any more help.

        @vanessav53 - this is awesome!  MANY thanks!!! Are you having your flowers etc delivered to the resort?  I'm trying to figure out if I can have this done or not.  I booked at a Karisma property and I've seen on some of the threads that they won't permit the outside vendor to come on property for a delivery.  If need be, I will rent a car and go pick everything up 1st thing that morning. 

         

        I love your cylinder idea!  I want to do tall glass cylinders with MAYBE sand in the bottom and a string of orchid blossoms inside and floating candle on top to line the aisle.  But our wedding time is 3pm so I'm not sure the floating candle would work.  Also, they may get blown out b/c we want to get married on a roof/sky deck, which was pretty windy when we toured a few on our scouting trip. 

         

        Thanks again!

          @girlinthecity97 our florist is meeting a few of my family members in the drop off area at the hotel. We won't get charged a vendor fee that way since they aren't technically coming into the resort. It's $30 delievry fee so totally worth it so i don't have to rent a car. Not sure if your resort offers that but we can do that where I am getting married. So a few of my friends will meet florist, take the centerpiecs,etc. and bring them to the wedding coordinator office for them to set up for the wedding! Good Luck.

          Thanks @vanessav53!  I will look into that for my resort. I don't see why I can't do that. I met with photographers & videographers when I was there for a site visit so why not?!  You are the best :)
