Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

Definitely pack Imodium AD. I never have stomach issues when I go away, but this time I did the entire time. The resort charged $25 per pack. Grrr...

 

I actually needed more casual tank tops. I knew I'd mostly be living in my bathing suit and dresses at night, so I didn't bring a whole lot of casual clothes, but I definitely need another tank top in the mix.

 

Why did I bring like 6 pairs of socks? Seriously?!

 

More sunscreen. I had 4 spray cans (for 3 weeks). Yeah, that didn't last very long. Bring the cream and apply that before you go out, then when you get lazy on the beach or at the pool and need to reapply, use the spray. It's so convenient but you go through it so fast.

 

I wish I had had 2 strapless bras. I wore mine all the time and it was getting pretty nasty by the end of the trip.

 

So happy I brought tons of underwear!

Thanks for all the great tips! I've started packing already as we're leaving in 11 days. I'll be sure to refer to this thread as I complete the packing!

Does that mean you brought sneakers too? What were you going to wear 6 pairs of socks with...flip flops? LOL.

 

Leave the sneaks at home (unless you plan on working out of course!)...if you're hitting the town during the day...bring a comfy pair of sandals instead!

a funnel for our sand ceremony! our vases had small openings, and we had to scramble on wedding day to make a cone funnel out of some extra cardstock.

more bathing suits. i was so intent on not getting tan lines that i had 2 bandeau swimsuits that i had to alternate between all week (we arrived on saturday, wedding wasn't until thursday, and my dress was strapless). they were always still a bit damp when i put them on. yuck. (and i second LOTS of sunscreen. we went thru one whole spray can in about a day and a half!)

this one will sound funny, but desitin, or some other kind of diaper-rash kind of ointment, LOL! the day everyone decided to take a long walk into town i was wearing a dress (oh how i wish i had shorts on!) and it was at least 95 degrees out ... the combination of inner thigh "chub-rub" and sweat resulted in some seriously painful chafing, which was hard to recover from when you're almost always wet or sweaty in mexico! obviously i needed to get over it quickly or nookie would have been near impossible (not to mention it didn't look particularly attractive). i used a combo of triple antibiotic ointment and baby powder to get rid of it before wedding day!

haha!!! you crack me up! i get the chub-rub chafing too if i wear a dress is 95 degrees and walk the town!! not a good idea, AT ALL!!

great tips, thanks :)

Thank you for this thread!

 

Still have sometime before I leave, but one of my favorite things to pack is a cheap, clear, over the door shoe organizer. You can find them at Target for like $5. I hang it over the bathroom door and use it for random toiletries, belts, extra cords, keys, any kind of random items.

 

Its especially great for cruises since you have limited space anyways. Plus, it helps keep everything organized and easy to grab without cluttering the room or taking valuable counter space. Then at the end of the trip you can just trash it.

Thanks ladies! I am so glad I found this thread. I might need to add an extra bag in the mix! I am bringing a really cheap pair of flip flops for my shower shoes. We are staying at a 5 star resort, but I am still weird about my feet in the rooms/showers.

Oh this is great! I'll have to read through most of it when I have more time! Seeing as the wedding is still just under 7 months away, I think I have some time...lol

    • 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?
