OMG! Martha’s Destination MS Weddings mag mentioned this and I had never thought how horrible that must be for you DW brides! Glad you figured out a way around it!

$450!!  Holy moly!!  We shipped 4 huge boxes to our destination wedding and I don’t remember it being anywhere close to that much.  Maybe I’m blocking out that memory?  I thought it was more like $160 for us.  Perhaps our boxes were lighter?  Did you ship abroad?  We were still within the US.  I know nothing about how they determine that stuff.  Great idea to remind people of this though!

LOL @ your FH putting in cinderblocks… “This will be great as a ballast in case the box ever needs to float!” I could totally see someone I know saying that and justifying it…

Great point! We are getting married in the DR and Im really cutting back on the favors and decorations so that we can carry them on with us without going broke ๐Ÿ™‚ For instance a semi private dinner is included in the package and they set the table up nicely, not in our colors but Ive accepted that. Therefore, we will only bring centerpieces for our reception/party after the dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe because it was international shipping?  We had a huge heavy box (with my dress and a lot of other stuff for the wedding) that we sent by FedEx (from NYC to Hawaii) and it was about $150 (definitely not more than $200).  I’m glad we shipped our 3 boxes though because we barely fit everything in the bags we did bring on the plane.  Also, our coordinator had it all before we left home and it was worth the peace of mind while traveling to know our wedding clothes were already there safely!
