Something you wish you would have packed?

Recommended Posts

I'd bring a little bit of laundry detergent. Refreshes your clothes if you want to wear them more than twice.


I found that at the Majestic Colonial, there were no faceclothes. If you asked for some, they took them away again the next day for the laundry and you had to ask again.

not married yet, but ladies don't forget to bring a button-down shirt or zip hoodie to wear while getting hair/makeup done! it would suck to wreck your gorgeousness trying to pull your shirt over your head!


i am also going to remember to pack splenda ... not sure if they have that everywhere, and i don't care for other artificial sweeteners. in fact, i may be putting it in our OOT bags since we have so many diabetics!

I'm so happy I found this thread! It's so great!!!


I'm leaving tomorrow morning and now FI is on his way to his office to get his ipod docking station. We knew we wouldn't use it for our ceremony but what a great idea to have it while we're hanging out and getting ready!!!

Love the suggestion for the sewing kit too...I'll have to try and find ours.


Thanks so much ladies!! - I might unpack a pair of shoes too!!

This was the most helpful thread for packing!!!! I had made a packing list but this thread just helped with those last minute details.


I was soooo happy that I brought like 5 pairs of flip flops..I would also recommend bringing a pair or two that aren't thong because many of us on the trip got blisters between our toes from the humidity.


Scissors were a huge help!


Totally used the ipod docking station every day!


Nail polish remover was a must!


Bring at least two bottles of sunscreen! One is never enough. I remembered this from my last trip down south and we still needed to buy an expensive bottle from the gift shop on the resort!


pens and/or sharpies are a great idea too. You spend all this time planning and organizing before you leave...you want to stay organized while you're there!


If I think of anything else I'll add...again, this was such a great thread to read the night before I left!

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
