      So excited... bought two dresses today! One for the welcome dinner and the other for our legal day! The legal day dress may also double for 'after wedding reception and still wanna party' dress! Lol!

        Question for past brides? Did you use makeup service at Renova Spa? If so, were they any good?

          Hi ladies,

          I officially heard from Nancy with my official emial! I had a big weekend this weekend doing wedding stuff...starting to put together my OOT bags, wedding programs, booked spa appointments at the resort, etc. Next Saturday is my shower! It was supposed to be a surprise but my sister is flying in from out of town so they knew I would find out right when I saw her anyhow! I need to find an outfit this week...

           

          Seeflowers - what do your two dresses look like??? Do you have pictures or can you post a link? I'd love to see them.

           

          The dress I bought for my legal/church/home ceremony is the same dress I plan to wear for my welcome dinner at the resort. It's this dress in ivory.

          I still have to find shoes and a shawl to go with it for the legal ceremony (it will be April 2 in New England...still a little cold up here!). For the welcome dinner I want to find some fun heels/sandals to change it up a little.  We booked dinner at the same place we got engaged with both of our parents after the legal - so that should be fun! We booked a limo and everything to take us from the church to dinner and back.

            I had my face and hair and nails done at the Renova. She did a great job on all of them although i would say that the eye makeup was a bit on the heavy side..... i'm thinking tranny here. i would still recommend her though, cos after i wiped a bit off it still looked heaps better than could have done it. she put false eyelashes on for me too which i cannot do myself. they use MAC cosmetics, but it was kind of dark in the salon when she did me, so when i got out in the natural light i was a wee bit orange, but then i don´t really wear makeup most of the time anyway.

            These were minor things, nothing that a cotton bud couldn´t put right.My make up stayed put all day, and looking at the photos i think i scrubbed up a treat!

              I've been trying the find a picture of my dresses on-line but can't find them :(   The "legal"/"party" dress is a short, white Calvin Klein dress...soooo cute and kindda sexy. My FI loooves it. I went to the gym last night and today because its a lil snug.... 5 more pounds and it will be perfect. The welcome dress is made by Nine West. Its black, white, with pink accents... kind of a sundress?

               

              We decided to not do the legal until we come back from Mexico. I think that better suits us. We feel that we want the Mexico ceremony to be the first time we say vows to eachother, etc. The legal ceremony is just paperwork... because it will be in May, hopefully it will be warm enough for the little white dress. If not, I'll need to find a shawl too!

               

              So I guess Nancy jumped the gun when she said she was contacting me with in a week to start planning... she hasn't sent the 'offical' email yet. I'm not too worried though.I know it should come in a week or so.

                      Nic- that's AWESOME! Congrats. Was it only cabbage soup that you ate the entire week, or were you allowed other things too?
