My lovely partner & I are getting married in Edinburg in October. She has a simple dress plus some scarves & other hoo haw to make herself look (more) beautiful. I will have a full kilt outfit (brouges, socks, kilt, jacket...going regimental so no underwear?) Our celebrant has agreed to have us ship a box to her & we can catch up to it in Glasgow. I have researched mybaggage.com and it looks fine. Rates are decent & good reviews. Rather than a box I would like to ship in a large Timbuk2 Copilot bag i have. I looked at FedEx shipping & the rate is over double. But if that is what it takes then I'd be comfortable with that.
I'm worried about the bag clearing customs. Mybaggage.com has a list of prohibited items & we would adhere to those guidelines. Any advice on easing my worries on clearing customs? Ex: I did it & my box/bag got sent back to my home because I had car parts in the box vs I did it no problems at all. FedEx says they give advice on best way to clear customs. Mybaggage.com had a list of prohibited items (ie; car parts)
*I don't want to check a bag because we have many stops on the way to Scotland including Minnesota, NYC, Heathrow & Dublin)
