    Stuff I was happy to have:
    *baby powder (chaffing, not just me, but especially FI in his swim trunks all the time) this can be used like chalk on a dress also!
    *cute hats, the sun can burn your scalp and too many times it itches, then peels about a week or two later, it's so gross
    *chargers: cell phone, iPod, and most importantly camera battery
    *waterproof camera case
    *those hang on the door makeup/bathroom stuff folds up to pack bags, counter was small and FI took it over
    *an empty trash bag (put all dirty clothes in it for trip home)
    *the nail polish I had on my toes, the beach can be unforgiving

    Stuff I wish I had:
    *an extension cord, sometimes only one plug is by the mirrors and I had my own blow dryer & flat iron
    *alarm clock (thank goodness for cell phones, we couldn't call out from them, but the alarm saved us)
    *those little packets in medicine bottles that keep moisture out, they would have kept my underwater camera case from fogging up
    *iPod dock, the one English channel on TV wasn't that run to get ready to like music would be (wedding hotel has them already, yay)

    Stuff I could have done without:
    *so many bras, I lived in swimsuits
    *why did I bring a pair of jeans?!
    *too many shoes, old pair of tennis shoes, 1 pair of cute/dressy flip flops, and 2 cheap pairs of flip flops was plenty
    *wouldn't bring OFF, never needed it when we went both times, guess it depends on where you are but in Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Tulum, Xel-Ha, horseback riding, and Coba ruins never got bit
    *won't bring steamer for dress, will just hang in BR while showering to get wrinkles out

              the must have that i never travel without is a nail brush, it comes in handy, a bar of soap & holder from home, a week with hotel shampoo is murder on your hair, and a good frizz tamer

                must bring...

                scissors, extra ribbon, sewing kit, shout wipes, thank you cards, DOLLAR BILLS for tipping!, sweater or cardigan, flip flops that match everything, nail polish remover and neutral polish

                    I think one of the best tips on here is the Extension Cord! thank you!
                    i'm also bringing my slippers, nothing like putting your tootsies in a comfy pair of slippers in your A/C room!

                      I'm glad I brought a tide pen and wish I would have brought my Ipod dock for our room. I thought the clockradio would have a dock as many resorts due and wish I had it for when I was just in the room getting ready for dinner etc.
