What to pack...

We've got 39 days until we leave!!

I'm starting to stress slightly, it's been a nightmare getting everyones wedding outfits and still not 100% happy with the boys shoes so might need to change them again! lol

I'm worried because there's so much to plan for the wedding that I've forgotten basic things!

Here is what I have/will have ready to pack, and what I think we've got left to get. I have a very big niggling feeling there is something really important I've forgotten!

What we have;

All tickets/vouchers
Folder with tickets/money/confirmation emails

Camera/Video camera
Underwater camera/video camera for DC and water parks
Ipad/kindle for plane journey
Passports
ESTA's
API's
Photopass+
ADR's booked
Wedding booked
Travel cards
Cash dollars for first few days/tolls
Wedding rings
Hair straighteners
Wedding attire
Flowergirls basket and accessories
Hair and make up for wedding booked
Halloween costumes
Mickey ears
Plug converters for UK to US electric sockets
Booster seats for car
Sunglasses
Chargers/batteries
Hand luggage change of clothes
Baby necessities
Phone
Shampoo/conditioner/toiletries
Boostpaks for the kids to use as hand luggage and booster seats
New car seat for baby so we can take one and have a spare at home if it gets lost

What we need;


Wedding licence
Snacks/entertainment for plane and car journey
Groceries for Villa
Sunscreen
Photos of passports/tickets
New swimwear
Music and music player for ceremony (nowhere to plug so need something with batteries that's loud enough to hear!)


Also with the baby's car seat, is it right we can check that in with our normal suitcases with no extra charge and it doesn't go towards our baggage allowance? Do I just bag it up and put our name and details on it? Never been with a baby before!

Thanks in advance!

Haha, I know I'll get there and not wear/use half of it!

Absolute musts are passports, tickets, money, travel cards, everyone's wedding attire and cameras.

I'm not that fussed with clothes, we'll probably get a load there, but the rest above...! lol

You mention you are taking your ipad - have you any speakers that you can use (or borrow off someone) to play your ceremony music from the ipad?

I'm sure you can but they will probably be expensive if they are 'official' ipad ones. Any speakers with a standard 3.5mm jack should be compatible, just check the sound output is loud enough before you buy

I'm just like you, such a worrier when packing and really all I have to worry about is myself, as I'm only packing for myself!!

This is exactly what I am like. I have to pack for 5 and feel that I will get the blame if anything is forgotten. I've only forgotten something once - all of MY underwear. I'd put it on the dressing table, ready to pack and it was all still there when we got back.

Have you got insurance documents? Told your bank that you are going away? Driver's license if hiring a car?

Got print outs of travel insurance, keys with the people who are looking after house, telling the bank?? I didn't even think about that. Must find the paper part of my licence actually, thank you I would have forgotten that!

I'm being thick cause I'm sleepy but what are APIs?

The only thing I could think to add would be 'bug spray'/mosquito repellant. And that's only on my mind cause I just picked mine up. Flight socks maybe?

Have an amazing time.

Ahh good idea :D

API = Advanced Passenger Information, some airlines/tour operators require it.

Looking at your list it looks good to me. I am going crazy and we have 35 days to go and I am wanting to get the cases out now. As long as you have your wedding stuff you will be fine. Remember any thing you need you can buy there. Even socks as my DH thankfully found to lol.
