Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

Someone had previously recommended bringing an extension cord and I totally second this!! And while this sounds a little assumed - make a list of the items you're giving to your wedding coordinator and specify which items you definitely want back and which don't matter. We had a few things go missing that were important to us and it was pretty much a miscommunication issue.

OK here are my additions -

 

Extra sunscreen - I brought 2 cans of SPF 85 - my husband burned wearing 85 - we ended taking everyone elses sunscreen as they left so we'd have enough.

body lotion/after sun lotion - for sunburn and peeling

Extra shampoo and conditioner - the hotel provided this but i use special - i don't normally wash my hair daily but with all of the salt and chlorine I had to - it barely made it.

bandaids

 

 

 

I think someone else put tampons/pads - THANK YOU THANK YOU! Although I wasn't expecting it, it came and I was prepared! Definitely do this - stress plays with your hormones.

This is a great thread.  I've added so many things to my already extensive list. 

 

Any recent brides have any suggestions?

More ammodium and some cold meds.  Our group ended up going through ammodium like candy and my husband had to buy cold meds from the gift shop for an outrageous amount and then try and get the directions translated!!

 

Also those battery operated tea lights for the reception since it is so windy near the beach, our candles just kept blowing out :(

Love this....i just read all the way from the first post LOL I know its completely obvious but not one person mentionned the oh so obvious of remembering to pack your plane tickets and travel insurance documentation. Wouldnt it suck to get to the airport only to have forgotten the tickets themselves LOL WIth all the chaos of packing and excitement of getting ready to go we can definitely forget the most obvious things :)

amazing thread!

 

this is probably me over packing... but... I need to have options.  especially when it comes to accessories (like earrings, necklaces, hair accessories and bracelets).  They're small-ish so they don't take up too much space.

 

other items include:  different deodorants (I have like 3 and alternate them daily for better results), ipad (can double as a skype phone!) and hair ties (I go through what feels like 3 a day).

 

Thanks again!

We use electric toothbrushes at home but whenever we travel we buy normal brushes so you can just throw them out before you come home. One less thing to re-pack.

And Listerine! I usually bring 2 bottles when we travel...it's great for when you wake up after a few too many cocktails & you don't feel fresh even after toothpaste lol!
