Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

You might want to pack some extra materials that you used for all your DIY projects. I'm packing extra shells so that if some of them on my table number markers break, I'll still have a bunch to glue back on with the handy-dandy glue gun you reminded me to pack! :D I'll probably also bring extra ribbon and extra -blank- escort cards and some markers. That way if for some reason I've forgotten people or something gets ruined or broken, I can write up an extra or two.

Honestly, I don't know if anyone has put this but I would pack LESS than what I brought. I only ended up wearing tanks and shorts, flip flops and the occasional dress. I had two bags that i had to drag around and I only wore half (maybe of what I brought)

I agree....i did wear mostly summer dresses in the evening and then bathing suits and cover ups....i wore NOTHING else of what i brought! its def hard to plan what you will wear but if you are unsure about a piece of clothing, leave it at home, you wont wear it :)

This isn't really a packing tip, but I see a lot of brides discussing chub-rub on their inner thighs in this thread, so I think this is worth sharing here. I've found a great way to prevent irritation is to apply deodorant on the inner thighs. Makes everything super smooth & you'll smell great, too!

I know this is probably already on here but I wanted to say pack a mini sewing kit.

My bustle button popped off right after I put my dress on posing for pics in our room. Luckily the room had a travel sewing kit & we were able to fix it.

    • 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.
    • 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?
