You are beautiful and you are going to do a great job at your own make up. Price wise its a little more than what I ususally pay for at MAC. I would say a eye shadow is $14 or $16 at MAC is $18 or $20 for Bobbi Brown. I ended up buying most of the eye make up and foundation just because I don't usually wear foundations and know I need to for pictures. Some of the other stuff I just happen to need to replinish anyway so it sorta worked out. I know I always think of make up as an investment and how long it will last. Like I know MAC will last longer even though gover girl is way cheaper. Of course I will be able to tell you how it worked on the sweat and tears in a few weeks. bunny_4.gif

sweet, I cant wait to go to Bobbi Brown. Going to make an appt soon.

 

Makes me not want to chew out my TA too badly since everyone is having difficult times with their own TAs. I am still mad at her for being so flaky and calling my friend a different name, etc and when I told her I was booking 15-20 rooms - why she didn't do her research on the hotel to be better equipped for my guests. Crazy.

 

Mine is a small business owner and I wanted to support small business. Stupid me!!

OMG girls I totally forgot, I need your opinions. Friday night, my BM told me that she wants me to have FI invite her boyfriend to his stag. She said it was only fair that her boyfriend "was spending all this money to go the wedding" and she is in the bridal party. My best friend and sister are both married and BMs and neither of their husbands are invited. Is this what I tell the BM? Her BF is 8 years older than FI and a cop and just not on the same wave length as FI. I know she wants her BF to be more included in our group of friends, but I just think its totally awkward to ask me to have input on his stag and thats not appropriate. I dont expect FI to telll me who to invite to my bachelorette. I almost want to say all that to her but I know she will be mad/upset. She was upset that BF was not invited to another little mini-stag on island that someone threw for FI. I can either explain these things to her or leave it alone and not say anything....

You should be mad! How hard is their job seriously that so many of them get it wrong or don't know what they are doing? You're not stupid, companies big and small alike are screwing up so it doesn't really matter who you go with because dw.com is a big company. Stick to your guns! You deserve a competent TA :) We all do!

She can't force her BF upon your FI... It's rude of her to assume she can make you have your FI invite him to HIS stag when he's not a close friend. He's only invited to the wedding by her association anyways right? If they weren't BF & GF would he be coming? You don't need to explain yourself unless you feel you need to you but you can always tell her it's close friends only.

OMG! seriously, what is wrong with people??!! I bet if he knew she was saying that he'd not want to go to something he wasn't really invited to anyway!

I'd say something, so it doesn't linger.

And I think what you've said there ^^^^^ is exactly what you should say to her - it's honest, straight and to the point. and add on the end, you're not adding to all your stresses with something that's ultimately nothing to do with you. wink.gif

Let us know how it goes, whatever you decide!

I agree!! I wouldn't want a bunch of "randoms" at my bachelorette party. It can really affect the vibe of the weekend. I don't think anything needs to be said...if she keeps insisting, you can just explain to her that it is close friends and that your FI's friends are planning it. She should definitely understand! My FI has been in 7 weddings this year...I wasn't invited to the girls' bachelorette parties that were marrying the guys who's parties he was going to...that would have just been super weird. (wow, I don't even know if that made sense!)

I know! They did the same thing to me...they begged and begged me to stay but I just couldn't handle their drama anymore! I lost $50 but oh well. Like I said, Wendy with BDW is wonderful!!! If you end up leaving DW for good, I would definitely call her!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
