We drove our minivan to our Destination Wedding, and it was packed full!  We had two wedding dresses and accessories, our chuppah (wedding canopy), programs, kippot (skullcaps), and spotlights.

However, if you are going by air, you may want to consider having some items sent directly there, rather than carrying them with you.  For example, 60 chair covers will likely be both heavy and awkward to carry.  If you are ordering them online, you might see whether you could just have them shipped directly to the resort.  For other items, you might want to think about shipping them there, rather than trying to carry them.

And don’t forget that in addition to your normal luggage, you’ll likely be carrying your dress with you.  Adding a bunch of decorations to that could be very awkward to carry into and out of airports.

@dynamic_duo:  Can’t you buy personalized labels for the water and just buy the bottled water once you get to Jamaica?

@dynamic_duo:  Good point.  I haven’t seen any of those labels in person before, so I’m not sure what the quality is like or what it looks like when you put it on the bottles yourself.

I don’t think you are going overboard, I wanted a few extras for the big day also. If you are flying, I would just be mindful of the weight of the bags and fees. The resort we’re getting married at does not accept any shipments, so we have to bring anything else we want for the wedding.  I’m not too thrilled with how much we have to spend in baggage fees, but I’ll get over it 🙂 . Good luck!
