I am doing all of my flowers and boutonnieres beforehand, something similar to this:

and this:

I thought I could put all of the boutonnieres in a tupperware in my suitcase to keep them from being smashed on the way down.  Do any of you have any great ideas or plans on how to get the bouquets down there?  I have all the flowers done, but haven't assembled them.  I didn't know if they would be easier to get down as stems vs. a bouquet.

 

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

I had real flowers done in Jamaica, so I didn't have to worry about this. I'm sure there are ladies here that will have suggestions or ideas!

 

Good luck!

    I think taking them down individually is the best idea.   I also think, asking whatever close friends/family you have coming with, to bring some with them too is extremely helpful :)

     

    That's what I am doing!  I will be buying a carry on luggage that is acceptable by our airline and taking it all with me :)

    It's hard because my FI and I live 12+ hours from everyone going down to Mexico with us, so I think we will be stuck taking EVERYTHING down

    I did all our flowers and traveled with them in my carry on. No Tupperware needed for us, but that's a great idea!!
