Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

For cruise bride I'd say bring an extension cord as there is only one plug in the room, and in you have balcony room bring a bungee cord to keep the door open overnight.

I also bring a travel bottle of febreze to freshen the room up...

I honestly don't bother with my straightner anymore. My hair is thick and wavy so it just gets all fuzzy and yucky with the humidity when I try to straighten it. It just takes up room in the suitcase for nothing! lol

LOL I agree Lisa!! I didn't bother for our 2 week stay to bring it...

I would have brought more Advil. I only had about 10, and they charge an arm and a leg at the resort. Luckily our mothers were arriving 5 days after us and brought me a whole bottle! I had injured my ankle so needed a lot more than originally anticipated...

Thank you all for this thread. It really helped me with my packing.

 

I was prepared for every part of our trip. We were there for 11 days and I had everything I needed except not enough of the following.

 

The one type item I didn't pack enough (I only brought a couple) but fortunately had family coming a few days later so they brought them to me was enough Sarongs and cover ups. I should of brought every one I had because I lived in bathings suits, flip flops, and sarongs every day during the day from the time I got up till we wanted to go to dinner.

 

The couple I had was not enough because things had a problem drying in Cancun. AND I had a problem putting on cold wet items first thing in the morning.

Bug spray is a good one!! I bought 2 bottles at the hotel and paid way too much.

 

Ivory bar soap was also a lifesaver....great for getting stains out of dresses!!

    • 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.
