Gosh only 2 days before we fly...I really can't wait!
I finished work on Friday!! What a relief!! I really needed these few days to unwind and finish off packing.

**Plan for today

Pack! List any items that we may have forgotten.

Exchange holiday money - any thought on Pesos or dollars?
I already have a US dollars account I have been paying the WC with which holds extra and I have our Exit Tax in Pesos. So just need tipping and spending money.

**Plan for tomorrow

10.00am Haircut and styling
11.30am Waxing (ouch)
1.00pm Lunch with friends
3.30pm Last minute shop
4.30pm Chill out

**Wednesday

8.00am Taxi to airport
9.15am Check in
11.15am Fly to Mexico !!!

Omg that's so exciting. I can't wait to hear all about it. I hope you love the resort and your wedding day is all you've dreamed of and more.

I use peso in Mexico. With the Canadian dollar to the US I can't justify exchanging and peso is their currency. Maybe use what you have left from the US account and then get the rest in peso :)
Good luck!

OMG 2 days before you leave? That's so exciting!! I love that you have "chill out" in your itinerary. I think we all get so caught up in the stress and anxiety that we forget to take a moment to relax. I wish you all the best and I hope everything turns out as you imagined (and more)

As for money, I always bring US dollar bills but with the exchange rate, I'm not sure what I'll be doing

@Wafflesmom bring peso. It's their currency after all and you can tip more with the money you don't lose to exchange. Just make sure you tip what's equivalent to US/Canadian

@calgarybride2015 you make a good point, plus our exchange rate to pesos is so much better!

    @calgarybride2015 - we have decided to take Pesos for tipping and souvenirs and dollars for general spend. Thanks for the advice! X

    @Wafflesmom aww Thank you xx I can't believe we have 1 more day in the UK and then we are off!

    Dilemma
    The dress.... I spoke to my airline provider who tells me I can only take my dress on board in a wedding box or hand luggage. I have a wedding box but it is too big! I have purchased a new carry on but the dress needs to be folded several times with no space for anything else! Also hand luggage is only 5kg! Should I chance it in my hold luggage as I have enough space? FI is putting his suit in his case.
