    Another great idea to pack is a twist dress or wrap dress!  I got one last week and I LOVE it.  You can make it strapless/one shoulder/halter etc. and it's jersey material, so super comfy!  It'll be great to wear different ways! :)

      Love this definitly a great thread!

       

      Here my list... I do have three months of expand on this but I like to be organized  

       

      Button up shirt for when getting hair down

      safety pins

      shout pen

      camera with xtra charged batteries and a huge memory stick

      camera cord for the the computer therefore if you fill up your memory stick you can just upload at the internet cafe

      guest book

      RINGS I just have a bad feeling I would forget those :)

      bobby pins lots

      teeth whitner for a touch up

      travel sew kit

      all emails printed from wedding coordinator and travel agent

      sandals with different straps to manage blisters

      hand sanitizer

      ziplocks

      notebook pen

      books

      nail polish remover

      Immodium ..hem hem...

      Tums

      Tylenol

      Travel mugs to keep those drinks cold

      baby wipes

      Chapstick

      Copies of passport

      water proof mascara

      Lotion

      Watershoes

      Jewellery

      Garter

      white chalk (great idea)

      Ipod/Dock

      Water shoes

      cake topper

      Guest book

      and if im lucky ill remember my dress!

       

      Also a friend of mine was married in mexico in february and she bough a product from a fantasia party edible snow powder and when you put it on your body it stops you from sweating. She rubbed it all over prior to putting on her wedding dress and said she did not sweat one bit. I have ordered mine from Fantasia.ca. I believe my groom might need a little of this as well .... :)

          Okay, I am officially obsessed with the idea of these wrap dresses. :) However, they are $140. Buuuutttt....Victoria's Secret has a similar dress that is on sale of $69. Seems to be the same concept. They are awesome.

            Great list!

            I might add that stuff you can rub on your feet that prevents blisters, inserts for shoes/sandals (also a blister preventative).

            OH, and I have some of that fantasia stuff, it's GREAT! and mine is raspberry so it smells/tastes like raspberries! ;)

                Does it really work to stop you from sweating?! Will it be sticky if you do sweat a little?!

                  Mine has yet to arrive so Im not sure about the sticky factor. but my friend who used it said she had no problem at all and no stickiness. My plan is to try it before the wedding on one of the other days just to make sure it doesnt feel weird. Im a little worried about my FI in a long sleeve shift so I want him to try it out.
