How exciting to be packing. I think I was packed about 1 month before we left. I wasn't wearing any summer clothes at the time. I was soooooo over packed!!!! I didn't wear half of the stuff I brought but had to wash it when we got home because of the wet feel and smell.


I suggest that if you ever want to know the time bring a watch! We didn't and there are NO clocks anywhere!! It drove me nuts. I also second the travel mugs. your legs will thank you! I so wish I could go back with you guys!! Its cold here and beautiful there. You will have a great time. I can't wait to see pics and hear how it went! Have fun!!

This is the list I am using as a guideline. I think Paula's is more comprehensive but I think that this one tells you how many things to pack. I usually do a good job, except in the underwear department. I don't know why I think I cannot leave my house overnight without 15 pairs of panties!


Brides Magazine recommends the following for one bag/one week:


1 Lightweight Jacket or Sweater

2 Pair Casual Pants / Jeans

7 Casual Tops/T-Shirts

2 Casual Skirts/Shorts

2 Sundresses

2 Evening Outfits or 1 Suit

8 Pair Underwear

3 Bras (including strapless if needed)

2 Swimsuits

1 Beach Cover-up (Sarong, Tunic, etc.)

1 Hat

1 Beach Bag

4 Pair Socks

1 Pair Athletic Shoes

1 Pair Casual Sandals/Flip-Flops

1 Pair Dress Shoes (these must be closed toed for men)

1 Evening Bag

1 Evening Cover-up/Shawl

2 Sets Work out Clothes

1 Toiletry Bag with Sunscreen & Bug Spray

One other tip that I think is great...


When you pack your dress to carry on they plane, turn it inside out. This will keep it clean if the bag is opened and searched. It will also help keep FI from sneaking a peek!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
