    Today I think I went through every packing list thread on this forum to put together my list for packing our boatload of stuff we are hauling down to Mexico. I compiled all of the info I got from the posts into one master list, so hopefully this will save some time for other masterpackers out there.
    Keep in mind, some of this is more specific to our actual items, but otherwise there are some goodies I totally wouldn't have thought of!

    PACKING LIST:

    CARRY ON
    (BOTH BRIDE & GROOM WILL HAVE A CARRY ON TO DIVVY THIS UP)

    Passports and driver's licenses
    Plane tickets
    Copies of all contracts
    Vendor contact info
    Lists of guests and travel info, arrival times, hotels where they will be
    Copies of wedding insurance policy

    Wedding dress
    Veil
    Groom's suit
    Cell phone & charger
    Camera & extra batteries/memory stick
    Extra wedding invite

    Grooms accessories
    Some glass ceremony items
    Ring holder shells

    CHECKED BAG 3

    Insect repellant
    Toothpaste and toothbrushes
    Deodorant
    Bobby pins
    Safety pins
    Makeup remover
    Cotton swabs/Makeup brushes
    Hair brush and accessories
    Hairdryer
    Curling iron/straightener
    Shampoo/conditioner/styling products
    Slippers for the room
    Sewing kit
    Travel mirror- to see your hair on the wedding day
    Glade plug in-for room
    Watch: for telling time at the pool (no clocks anywhere)
    Ziplocks

    CHECKED BAG 4---DONE
    Welcome bags and contents
    Menus
    Guest book & pens
    Thank you notes to vendors and envelopes for tips
    Place cards
    Cake Topper

    CHECKED BAG 5
    Table d©cor (candles, flowers, table runner, etc.)
    Ceremony accessories (sand ceremony)
    Fix it kit: Sharpies, tape, scissors (X2), glue, extras of all materials used to make favors, double sided tape, cardstock, ribbon, tacks for flowers
    Extra thank you cards
    Wedding planning folder with guest list and wedding details

    TO DO:
    *Make a photocopy of passport and driver license to carry, and scan/email another copy to yourself. That way, if you lose these documentations, you'll have some form of proof and will be easier to get the replacement
    *Make list of all important phone number for TA, WC, flight number, etc.
    *Make list of all guest room numbers, phone numbers, etc.
    *Call your credit card companies and inform them you will be in Mexico so they do not freeze your account due to suspicious activity.
    *Inform your bank you will be in Mexico, if you plan on using your ATM card. You can ask them to temporarily raise the max on how much you can withdraw per day.
    *Pre write Thank you notes to vendors and envelopes for tips

    I've attached this in a word doc as well
