May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

I've booked our condo in Hawaii, and reserved the reception hall for our AHR. Oh, and I've bought my dress and my FI's outfit. That's about it. I'm going to start working on my diy invites (for AHR) next week. Mostly I've just researched everything. I'm not worried at all.

So what are you girls doing for makeup for the big day? Since we're going on a cruise, they ships salon doesn't offer make up service. So my aunt (that sounds weird since she's 3 years older then me and I never call her that!) is going to do my makeup, since we're not having a wedding party so I wanted to give her something special to do.


I normally wear Bare Minerals. I was thinking of going like 2 weeks before we leave and taking her with me to Mac since everyone raves about there makeup. Atleast to get some foundation and eye makeup.


What do you girls suggest?

I haven't even thought about makeup yet... I've been slacking and haven't done a whole lot more. But my mom and her best friend are coming up the first weekend in December to help me register and look at invites. Next on my list are my STD's.

Well here it is:


Date Picked: May 22, 2009

Resort Picked: Playacar Palace

Wedding Bands: Both me and my FI

Dress Bought: Still needs extreme alterations

STD's: Send out about 2 months ago

Invitations Sent: We wanted to get them out early

Wedding Registry Done: Although I have to go online and take a few things off...Like the Wii my Fiance ran off and added

Passorts Done: Well both my FI and I have them, but his expires 5 months after the wedding so he needs to get it renewed

SO MUCH left to do! But it will be okay...I just need to take one thing at a time!
