How Many Pieces Of Luggage Are You Bringing For Wedding Stuff?

Recommended Posts

Thanks!  I will keep an eye on the flyers.  Walmart has a 3 in 1 right now for $69! We have to buy luggage anyways as my kids don't have suitcases, but cheaper the better.

nice! i know my parents have at least 1 or 2 old big suitcases we can use, I was maybe planning on asking good friends/family if they have any large suitcases we can borrow

We have been buying old suitcases at Flea Markets and such.  This way we only have to fly with them one way and we can throw them in the trash when we are done.  

 

We are each packing one suitcase for our clothes (2)

1 Suitcase with our centerpieces

1 Suitcase with our waterbottles

1 Suitcase for the rest of our welcome bags

1 Suitcase with gifts for bridal party and family members

 

We are asking that our family members all help us out with taking luggage.

Thanks for sharing everyone!  I'm hoping that by splitting a few of our items amongst our close guests (our parents) that we'll be able to keep it to just 2 suitcases and our carry ons.  I'll need to keep my eyes peeled on any sales on suitcases.

I am going to Cabo in 2 weeks for a post-wedding visit to the resort and my WC has agreed to store some of my wedding goodies, so I am bringing 3 large suitcases (I bought 3 suitcases from the thrift store which I will leave in Cabo after the wedding), full of wedding items such as all of my OTT Bag items, my guest book, wedding signage, escort tags and maracas which will be stored until our wedding day in February.  I am sure in February I will have at least 1 more suitcase of wedding items to bring with me.

I've been worrying about this too! I think our checked bags are allowed 50lb. We will each have one and one for our son but hopefully we can share one for clothes and just use the other for wedding stuff. I'm going to have like 40-45 tumblers so that takes up a lot of space! I'm pretty sure my dress won't count as a carryon, plus I have a baby so we'll have diaper bag, purse etc for the kids. Then FI can take our clothes and necessities on his carry on. Our parents both said they share a bag so they will each have one checked bag free that we can have them carry down for us. its going to be a lot easier getting the stuff back then down there! So much to think about!

If you stack your cups you can save space. If you have them full with lid on (we are putting stuff in our cups) we need a 30 inch suitcase to fit 48. Heheh yes I tried!

At this point I plan to have them assembled in the suitcase.  Minus the straw as they get in the way of packing them back to back to back.  We will add the straws in Mexico.  Our flight lands at 230pm and we planned our welcome drinks for 730pm, so I don't really feel like getting there and rushing to assemble them all.

 

I was also dorky enough to weigh it all to make sure it fits specifications :)

 

If I am in a bind and need a bit more space for decor I may stack them.  But stacking them, then having the hangover/oh sh!t contents packed separately may take just as much space.  Did that make sense?

 

If I wasn't putting the supplies in the cups, I would probably just stack them.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
