      I think I did a pretty good job packing, if I can say so myself, but I could have used a second set of scissors for those last minute things we put together, cutting extra tags, ribbon, etc. Only one person could use them at a time.

      Scissors (X2)
      GLUE! (Goop makes a little 3 or 4 pack with glue for different things)
      Extra thank you cards

            Chalk works well to cover spots on a white dress! Its a great think to throw in, in case you get lipstick or something on the dress

              I wish I had nail polish remover. I kept painting over mine to touch it up & by the end of the week it was so thick that it was annoying me.

              I also wish i remembered an invite & STD for the photograph of all of my wedding stuff.

                  I wish I packed a travel sewing kit.

                  I could have done without packing an excessive amount of shoes (I ended up wearing flip flops all 10 days and none of the heels I brought).

                    I wish I would have brought more comfy shoes! Like Jessica, I didn't wear half of the stupid heels I brought. However, I did bust a pair of flip flops while there...which caused me to have to wear the heels when they weren't necessary! So definitely bring 2 pair of flips or whatever comfy shoe you like.
