there's a few things you can do as well:
-every morning when you wake up drink a glass of hot/warm lemon water with sea salt (regular salt will do at the resort), it acts as a gentle detox to remove toxins and keeps the bowels regular, wait at least 30 mins before eating anything else. it's best to get into this habit daily before the trip as well
-stay hydrated in the hot sun, drink lots of water (maybe do 1 for 1 - one glass of water per glass of alcohol drink you have if you plan on drinking alot)
-avoid processed flour & sugars as much as possible, they will bloat you the most
-limit dairy consumption
-eat lots of protein, veggies, fruit
-you may benefit from taking probiotics and digestive enzymes
if you don't get enough fiber in your diet you may want to bring some psyllium seed husks with you to take daily to get things moving, just make sure to drink tonnes of water, if you don't that will just make the bloating worst.
if you plan on drinking alcohol here's a few tips on things to help the hangover, stomach issues:
po chai pills - Amazon.com: Po Chai (Bao Ji Wan) Pills - Herbal Supplement (10 Vials Per Box) - 1 Box: Health & Personal Care
-take one vial(don't chew) when you are drinking and before you go to bed. if you live in the Toronto area you can buy these at most herb shoppes in Chinatown for $3.50/box, there are 12 in a box
nux vomica (colubrina) - homeopathic remedy
-this is found in most health food stores and is under $10, take 4 pellets when drinking and 4 before bed
i always bring extra supplements with me on vacation because i am more concerned about getting a cold than having stomach issues (and i have stomach problems)
-bring extra vitamin C, B complex vitamins, oil of oregano
any more questions...i'd be more than willing to offer up some tips (i'm a holistic nutritionist in case you were wondering my source of infomation)

They are colon cleanse pills from a website Robin Anthony’s Renu Herbs. They are good and they are gentle. After 3 consistent days of use I am good and looking good. I bloat at the drop of a dime and it has helped with my stomach pouch.

hmmm i was not familiar with this specific product but i just read the ingredient list and it doesn't have anything too harsh in there.
for those who are going to take this...i would recommend trying this well before the week of the wedding. you may need to play around with how many or how little you take. sometimes with colon cleanses or any type of cleanse for that matter your body goes through a 'healing crisis'. those types of symptoms would not be fun while away.
trying any new product like this do at least 30 days before so by the time you go away you are taking 'maintenance' pills. it will be easier on your system.
