    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!

          I cannot believe the list I have just from looking through this thread.

          Looks like there's another checked bag in my future. Keep 'em comin' ladies!

            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!

              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
