The Easy Weddings Forums have now been retired to make way for a brand new discussions area!

Over the years the Easy Weddings forum has been a great place to ask questions, post stories and meet other brides (and grooms).

Unfortunately as our community has grown - the forum has no longer been able to give YOU, the best possible experience on our site.


SO - we've decided to retire the current forums to make way for a simpler, easier and more fun community experience! It's now easier than ever to start a conversation, contribute back to the community with helpful answers or just share your wedding journey with others.


Best of all, the new discussions area uses your existing Easy Weddings account to sign in!


Visit the new Discussions Section


P.S. To all our existing forum users - please note that you will no longer be able to login, post or reply to any topics in the old forum. We encourage you to visit the new discussion section instead. We don't plan on removing any of the old content so you can still dig up any old conversations you may have once had :)

Depending on what your prescriptions are, you may need to actually take the doctor prescription with you (or a letter or something) because rules about medications are different in different countries. I'd suggest doing a bit of research on that maybe?

It is also a good idea to register with Smart Traveller (smartraveller.gov.au). So that in the event of any kind of emergency etc, they know where you are and can get you out. Although Italy is hardly a dangerous place :)
The website also has all the information you could need for travelling to different destinations. I.e. what risks to be aware of, for example I just looked at the Italy one and it says to be aware that petty crimes are common (e.g. bag snatching, theft from cars at the lights etc). It will also give you all the info you need about the customs and culture of the destination so you can avoid offending the locals, or getting in trouble (e.g. you can get fined for buying "fakes" of products off of street sellers).

And I second the travel insurance!

Also, take more than one source of money. For example if you are taking cash, also take maybe one backup credit card or debit card- and keep them separate in case of loss or theft.

I know I sound like a worry-wort, but I just like to be fully prepared when travelling :)

Doctors letter for your prescriptions saying you need them medically invade customs asks you about them or they te considered illegal there. Even if thy are not it's always a good idea to keep the letter with you.

More than enough underwear and socks. FH and I are going on a cruise for our honeymoon and there's no guest laundry on the ship. They have laundry services but they're rather pricey as it's per item (I hope they have wash bag days).

Enough shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser and make up remover to last the trip. Also lots of suncream, hair removal cream, spare razors, make up pads and general cleaning and skin care stuff.

No wonder I got caught with excess baggage last time.

Just on the travel card hun, which bank is it? Just letting you know, some banks give you the second card as a backup only if you lose the first one so both can't be used at the same time.

I would also suggest taking a savings account card with you too, just in case. Even if you have your savings account linked to your credit card, some international ATM machines won't let you withdrawn funds out of accounts linked into the cheque/saving position on the card.

Call you bank and let them know you are traveling and get their international contact details.

Don't forget pin numbers for all your cards!

You can organise emergency cash/cards through Visa and Mastercard.

Make copies of all your ID's, passports and your travel itinerary keep a copy for yourselves and leave one with family.

Sounds like you are on top of everything :)

I reckon you'll be fine with just the scripts for just the pill and anti-naseau meds (no need for a letter). I've taken the pill o/s to Zimbabwe, South Africa, Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Indonesia with no need even for a script :)

Things u MUST take (apart from travel documents):
Prescriptions as mentioned above.
Something like Imodium. The last thing u want on ur honeymoon is diarrhea.
Camera!!!!!!
Take old wallets. Put those stupid loyalty cards in them to bulk them up and recipes from cafes etc etc. that way if it is stolen the joke is on the thief!!!
Mobile phone. You may not need it all the time but it's always good to have just in case.

Things that are needed (but not in large numbers)
Cosmetics (European heat will melt everything off)
Sunscreen. They sell it there.
Shampoo and conditioner. They sell this there too. Unless u use specific stuff and ur hair will kill you For swapping....

Things that u could do without:
193947362810 pairs of shoes, dresses, tops etc... You will buy stuff there. But remember. European fashion is TOTALLY different to fashion here (my cousin went to Europe last year and has worn 2-4 pieces she bought and she was over her allowance).
Towels. Hotels will have them. Save space for souvenirs.

That's all I can think of now. Hth

I'm going on a cruise, so I need to take everything or brave the overpriced stuff onboard. And the stuff they have in the rooms is never enough.
