Yes, I agree... all banks are different so future brides should check with their banks. The exchange rates are great - just be aware of the fees. We called our banks before and still had issues when we got there. We did, however, use a capitol one which apparently does not have any foreign transaction fees - but double check just to make sure. We also used our delta card to max out on miles. It was our debit cards that seemed to charge the most fees - if I remember right and both were wells fargo visa cards.
