    Default Cti here we come!!!!!

    Hello to all couples on the message board!!

    My fiance' and I are counting down the days until we arrive at CTI...only 49 more to go!! We are planning the trip for our honeymoon and we are so excited!!

    Few questions though..
    I know others have probably asked these same questions a million times, so just bare with me...

    The big question is WHAT TO PACK?!?!? I keep reading people talk about the dress codes at certain restaraunts and it makes me nervous that me or my fiance' will not pack the right shoes or something and we won't be able to eat!! I'm usually a flip flop and tank top kind of girl, but i'm not sure if that would fly in some restaurants! And what about the future hubby...what kind of clothes and shoes should he pack? And if anyone could recommend any other little things that you might have wished you brought but didn't, please let me know!!! I'm all about planning things ahead of time and packing early, so I want to make sure i'm on top of things! Like for instance, should I bring my flat iron and hair dryer, or do most women do the au-natural look? I need help!!!

    Also, is room service included if we decide to stay in one day and don't want to go out to eat?? With planning a wedding and buying a house, we will be exhausted by the time we get there! I just want to make sure we have options if we want to take a day to relax.

    And speaking of relaxing...is there a limit on the alcohol or a time frame of when we can get our "free" drinks? I'm usually not a big drinker, but now we can use the excuse, "we're on vacation" if I want a rum-runner in the morning!!

    Also, we are going to be at CTI for about 6 days so I would like to get an idea of how much cash we need to bring, who gets tipped, how much and who doesn't??? I don't want to seem rude and not tip someone I was supposed to or vice versa.

    Ok enough of the questions now!! I would love to hear from all you CTI veterans though to get your input!!!

    Thank you!!!!

    The big question is WHAT TO PACK?!?!? the best I have ever heard it described, is to "think" Summer Out-Door Wedding for the evenings. For day wear, a bunch of swimsuits and cover-ups. Shoes will only matter for the hubby at 8 Rivers, then they will have to be closed toed.I keep reading people talk about the dress codes at certain restaurants and it makes me nervous that me or my fiancé' will not pack the right shoes or something and we won't be able to eat!!

I'm all about planning things ahead of time and packing early, so I want to make sure I'm on top of things! Like for instance, should I bring my flat iron and hair dryer, or do most women do the au-natural look? I need help!!!There are hairdyers in the room, but if you have really thick hair, I would suggest you bring yours from home. As far as the flat-iron, the humidity plays a huge role on your hair, I wouldn't waste my time.

    Also, is room service included if we decide to stay in one day and don't want to go out to eat??The only room service provided is a continental breakfast. Other than that, you have to come out to get your food. LOL With planning a wedding and buying a house, we will be exhausted by the time we get there! I just want to make sure we have options if we want to take a day to relax.

    And speaking of relaxing...is there a limit on the alcohol or a time frame of when we can get our "free" drinks?NO LIMIT I'm usually not a big drinker, but now we can use the excuse, "we're on vacation" if I want a rum-runner in the morning!!bar opens at 10:00am, and the piano bar closes when the last person leaves!!

    Also, we are going to be at CTI for about 6 days so I would like to get an idea of how much cash we need to bring, who gets tipped,Tip your baggage handler at the airport, and your driver to and from the resort, tip the cat cruise folks, tip the spa employees. All the rest of Couples employees, you do not tip. It could cause them to lose their jobs. how much and who doesn't??? I don't want to seem rude and not tip someone I was supposed to or vice versa.

    Ok enough of the questions now!! I would love to hear from all you CTI veterans though to get your input!!!

    Thank you!!!! Your welcome
    Have fun!!!

    I'm sooo jealous that you only have less than 49 days to go. We are going to CTI for our Honeymoon also and we have 228 days to go...ugh, I'm on this website everyday and can't wait to go!!!
