      What if we've already put down our initial deposit with them? Can I still change? I already also have a few people who have booked with them. Will that stop us from finding another TA?

She was being a flake and didn't charge any of our guest till last week but asked for final payment at the beginning of Dec. I was pretty PO'ed, people budget for this big chunk of $$ to come out of their account and then she sat on it for 6 weeks. I was not pleased and thought it was a bit rude but we got over it now have our travel vouchers. Stressed out to the max about that for a few weeks.

        I got my make up for the ceremony yesterday. I decided to go with the Bobbi Brown waterproof eye make up line. Its really cool and last for 8 plus hours. I have a few things I need to work on but I think it will work out great. FI and I also picked out and ordered our cake topper for the AHR. So we are almost done with the cake planning as well. Today we are working on center pieces for the AHR with his parents. Well he is workiing on them, I am going to cook and watch football. He is the creative one and I wouldn't know the first thing on how to make a center piece stunning and romantic. Only 20 days left till the big day. The time is going to fly by. I am ready for the beach and a little sun!
        That's awesome! You sound like you are totally ready now, what a relief that must be, I can't wait until I feel like that :) Everything will be smooth from here on out!

I hope its sweat adn cry proof, that's why I bought it. I just hate crying but least I can prepare for it.
          I decided to do the same thing... one of my bridesmaids is a hair and makeup artist and owns a salon but I wasn't super happy with my makeup for my engagement shoot and tweaked it when I got home.

          Did the Bobbi Brown makeup artist do a good job? Just like what you wanted?

            I officially finished all of my STD's!!! I'm about to walk over to the post office with them right now.
            We got our first draft of our passport invites this weekend and so far they look great. We just need to make a few small changes.
            It feels great to officially have something done!

              The brand is City Triangles; it is a coral color, with spaghetti straps, empire bust with beading underneath, and a chiffon bottom that hits right at the knees. It has been retailing at all of our Ross stores for $19.99, and I need it in a Large. Thank you SOOOO much!!
              Pretty!!! I have a few Ross' by me so I'll check for you as well :) Hopefully one of us can track it down, that would be so amazing!! Wish us luck!

                  AmyKH, if you are working with destinationweddings.com, I strongly recommend you see if you can swap to Karilyn. I am using her, and she has been fabulous! She has been responsive to all my e-mails/phone calls, and my guests are not having any trouble with her :) PM me if you want her contact information!

                      Nicole-
                      Have a great trip to DR. I am so excited for you and your hub, it will be a nice get away from the winter weather.
                      That's what I thought, but I think buttercream will melt in the heat.
