    Hi Everyone, I am going to start getting things ready to pack. We leave in just over 2 weeks!!!! OMG I cant believe its here allready!! From my previous posts you all know that I am stressed out big time with being sick and working night and day, so my brain is alittle over whelmed right now and I am finding it difficult to sit down and think of what I need to pack besides the obvious bathing suit, clothes, wedding dress. What do you recommend/suggest that I bring Thanks for all your help and great ideas all these past months!!!

        Wow, I bet you're excited. Just take a couple nights off to relax yourself and make a list of things you would like to pack. Some obvious stuff to add to your list: sunscreen, first aid kits, a pen, tampon (from the married girls lol), bugs off wipes, painkiller, a pair of long pants if you're going horseback riding, water shoes if you go to Dunns River Falls (or rent there for $5), sewing kits, aloe, chap stick, dramamine, insulated mug (cups at Riu are small)...

                    Oh I cannot take credit for it... I think I got some of it from The Knot DW book, some from here and there and then some things I may have added myself.

                    I can take credit for having an Excel spreadsheet with everything at my fingertips :)
