I wore a veil and while it was all over the place, I wouldn't have changed it.  I think it made me look more "bridal."  I even kept it on for the reception, and it saved me from balling coming down the aisle.  It whipped me in the face as we were coming down the aisle and I laughed and pushed it out of the way.  :)  I always thought I didn't want one but it looked so nice with the dress.  And you can get them very cheap online, if you're not looking for anything fancy or particular.  If you don't spend a lot on it, you can decide on the wedding day depending on the weather.  I married at 5pm on the beach, and it was very windy! :(

I had to stop taking birth control in December after over 15 years!!!  I forgot all about my breakouts and oily skin, well...its baaaack!!!

Its really the oily skin I can't stand right now, and the more reading I do, it says nothing much will help.  I ordered pro-active and have been using it for over a month, and it is helping with the breakouts at least.  You've used the tanning towels before?  I used self tanner once, like 10 years ago, and I was streaky and orange....I vowed to never try it again....however, I am sure they have made improvements on this type of product over the years.  Any brand that worked best?

Your right, I would only go a couple times too...I use to go all the time in College...so bad!!

We're getting legally married in the US the Monday before our Saturday WEDDING and we're not keeping it a secret or making a big deal of it. Our parents and sisters will be there and most likely my Grandma, who can't make the long trip to Mexico. It'll be very casual and our anniversary no doubtably will be October 22nd, our wedding date. :) :)

 

 

 

Tisha - LOVED your tan. That's the color I want!

 

I've thought about this too since I have a feeling I'll only really have one good day of Mexico sun before the wedding. I think tanning beds are awful for your skin but I might make an exception for this one time in life and go a couple times before the wedding. I usually have good luck with Mystic tans (my skin is already slightly tan) but they don't last very well in the pool and that's where I'll be! I might do some self tanner at some point while I'm down there, "tanning towels" are easy to pack and aren't messy. As for skincare, I've already been trying hard to take care of my face...I had to stop the pill (after over 10 years!!) a couple weeks ago so crossing my fingers that whatever minor breakouts come, come in the near future, nowhere near October! 
 



 

Congratulations on your wedding! Love the parasols :)

LOVE the dancing video!!!  smile29.gif

So awesome!!!

Pics look amazing....especially the water in the boat shots.  Is the water in front of the hotel really as dark as it looks?  It seems all pics off boats make it look crystal blue, but the land shots make it look like a lake!?

:)

You and your daughter are very cute!  (pic standing on swings)

WOw your photos are amazing!! I love the tan suit your husband is wearing, where did he get it from? We have been going back and forth between black or tan for my FI to wear on the wedding day, but I'm totally LOVING the tan! My dress is similar to yours and I think the dan looks great

I know, self tanner is scary. I've used both of these:

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
