Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

Things I'm glad I brought: Vaseline (great to prevent blisters between your toes from

(your flip-flops or soothe existing blisters)

Lots of cover-ups to go over bikinis

Keens

SPF 70 (I burn REALLY easily)

 

Things I wish I'd brought: A warmer sweater to wear in the evenings (it's a bit chilly

by the ocean when it's windy out)

Aloe gel

Earplugs (loud neighbours!)

 

Overall, I think I planned my packing quite well. This thread helped me a lot!!

Totally agree with the sewing kit, There came a knock on my room door it was the gentleman driving me to the wedding site, right on time 5 minutes before the ceremony begins. I bend over to slip on my sandel and the little tack the seamstress did in the front of my dress to hold the girls in snapped. (Sounded like a gunshot)

There they were and I am in total panic mode... I don't any safety pins or a needle and thread... Thank the blessed lord the resort had a kit and the bloody things were pre threaded, because I was shaking like a leaf and about to loose my cookies. My girlfriend sewed me in my dress as the poor driver poured us champagne and he reminded me not to cry!!!!

 

PACK A SEWING KIT!!!!!

I may be competely Type A, but I always pack my packing list so that I can go back over it before I leave the resort and ensure that I haven't forgotten anything important, i.e. my camera or my important documents I might have hidden in a drawer somewhere. :)

I thought I was the only one who did this. Anytime I go away, even for a weekend I take my list, just to make sure I don't leave anything behind. :)

I saw one bride that took a picture of all her clothes/items she packed just in case your suitcase gets lost, easy to remember what you have to claim if (God forbid) this ever happened to you. I thought it was a good tip for anytime you travel.

 

I think my favorite things that I always bring is my blow up float. I have one of those round ones that folds down into a disc and you just blow up the outer edge - genius! Throw it on top of your clothes when you're packed, weighs barely anything.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
