Tips for keeping valuables safe

Recommended Posts

A bride whose wedding was 2 days before ours told us that while they were at the wedding and reception that all of their valuables were stolen from their room. Laptop, camera, cash out of the safe, etc. It seems that the resorts have a list of all wedding guests and can scan the rooms b/c they know people will be elsewhere during the wedding time. We did see two maids scoping out (or so it seemed) our room prior to our ceremony. We only had cash ... but did not keep it in the safe (my brother had about $80 stolen from the safe ... but they take money from the middle of your bills so it doesn't appear to be anything missing at first look).

 

I left my fake e-ring out in plan view, and it was still there afterwards ... so I guess it all depends.

 

Anyway, my advice would be to keeo valuables in a suitcase, covered with dirty clothes or something ... and locked with a luggage lock. We then put that suitcase inside of another suitcase and didn't have any issues.

This is a really good thread. I have heard about people stealing from our hotel. I don't want to tell our guests that, but at the same time I want them to be safe. I would feel horrible if something happened! We didn't have a problem with the in room safe during our last visit, but now I'm getting concerned.

Wait, white gold can't go in the poolhuh.gif? I didn't know this? Are you ladies bringing your engagement and wedding rings with you? I want to for pictures, and was just planning on wearing it at all times instead of leaving it in the safehuh.gif Yikes!

just reading this thread is making me scared. I alway use the hotel safes and never really thought twice about it.

 

Now i'm afraid to bring my ring, unless i wear it the whole time.

I have travelled quite a bit and when not using the in room safe then I simply keep everything in my suitcase ( obviously locked ) , also I always have an extra lock , a combo one that I can use for one of my other luggaages or carry on peices while in the room .

MY FI has a luggage set that came with a lock and he has ever had any problems either ....I hope I am not jinxing myself , we leave for Dominican for 10 days tonight !!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
