Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

This thread is fantastic! Thanks for all the great tips.


I have found from my past vacations that extra band-aids are always required. My FI and I tend to get blisters from the combination of water/sweat, flip flops and sand.


For the "chub rub" I have always used a thin layer on deodorant on the inner thighs.


I would also suggest to bring shirts to wear while you are snorkeling (if you go). It is very easy to loose track of time in the ocean and very easy to get sun burnt. We always have to make sure to have a few packed for my FI.

#1 - light tampons - yes ladies, you are reading that correctly lol


I had a brief "incident" in Puerto Vallarta and couldn't find any at Soriana. Next time I will definitely bring a couple.


#2 - too many tank tops. I didn't even wear them all!!

I wish I packed a nail file!


I cant think of too many things! But that is def one thing I wish I had.


I also packed outfits and it really worked. Also cute dresses as cover ups for the pool and beach were great ideas. I wore them everyday during the day. And at night I wore the outfits I packed.


Make sure to pack bug spray also!

Sorry if posted already. The most popular items used in my professional wedding planning emergency kit are pain killers, all kinds of tape, allergy meds/cream, all kinds of pins, tide to go, zip lock bags, bandaids, scissors, sewing kit with extra buttons,


-Pack extra cheap sunglasses, I lost a nice pair when a wave got me.

-One extra book, you don't want to be left reading brochures before the week is done.

-gravol gives me a great nights sleep

-small snacks for in your room (do not leave anything open for little critters to find)

-give someone ele a copy of your music in case yours gets lots (Cd or mp3 files)

-after sun cream if you're in the sun too long

-button down shirt and something strapless for when you get your hair done so you do not have to pull anythign over your head.


!! Copies of emails with your planner or TA that outlines previous details if a problem arises.

Copies of important papers, passport ... pack these separate from the originals incase the bag goes missing or is damaged. (Also leave copies with someone back home you can call in case of emergency)

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